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.

These notecards are super sweet and easy to make with this tutorial by Little Birdie Secrets. There are ideas for other shapes for other occasions as well.

Get stitching to show someone you really care with this DIY kit by Stitch Kits.

Artist Brittany Davies has some awesome anti-Valentine’s cards! Her drawings are incredible too.

For similar humorous yet beautifully designed cards, try Fiona Clabon’s clever collage creations.

If you make your own cute card, why not try this heart envelope to put your creation into?!

One final recommendation, check out this book on the art of sending beautiful letters and cards by Michelle Mackintosh.

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,
