Day 6: Send a Handmade Card to your Valentine // Sunray Sister’s 14 Days of Love

Happy Monday sisters! It is the start of a brand new week, and a new chance to give yourself and others even more love than before.

So this Valentine’s, why not send a card to your loved one(s) to tell them how much you love them?! Just make sure it’s handmade; by yourself or an awesome independent designer. The featured image above is a card by Re:made. Below are a few more of my favourites for day 6 of Sunray Sister’s 14 Days of Love.


Simple and quirky, with a fun pun. What could be better? Real Simple have lots of similar ideas on their website, including ‘we just fit’ with two jigsaw pieces!

Place is everything, so find a map of the location that is important to you and your loved ones, cut it into a heart and put it on a card. Just like Swoon Studio did.

Instead of maps, try cutting up old books and include your loved one’s name, like this card from Re:made. An alternative colour combination is shown in the featured image at the top of the blog, which just happens to use my name!

For the more statistically minded, try a pie chart of your heart. This card by Connie Clementine can be personalised with your own text.

I hope that’s given you some cool ideas to spread some love this Valentine’s, and not just in a romantic way; send them to your friends and family too! Maybe even give some out to strangers!!!

Come back tomorrow for day 7 of Sunray Sister’s 14 Days of Love, where I will be talking about handmade and alternative gifts to give at Valentine’s and all year round.

 

Peace and love,
