Those of you who know me know that I like making silly valentines day cards with bad puns. Last year I sent a card around with a picture of me dissecting a sheep heart on the front, and inside it said either, “I love ewe,” or, “ewe warm my heart!”
Another card I did last year for those of my friends and relatives less inclined to find gross anatomical things funny, said, “I love you sew much!” I stitched hearts to the front of the card.
Now I’m tasked with coming up with another funny valentines day card… I have a few ideas, and I’ll post the final card after the big v day- don’t want to ruin the surprise for those readers who I’ll be sending cards to!
When I’m making a card, I like to start with what it is going to say. One saying I found is:
Front: For those singletons, it might be a funny reminder that, 80% of my socks are single too!
Inside: Party in my sock drawer! Happy Valentine’s Day.
Another saying I found that I really liked is in French, “L’amour est l’amitié mis en feu, et vous êtes mon étincelle.” It means, “Love is friendship set on fire, and you are my spark.” It would be nice to do some word art with this. Here’s a sketch.
I also really like these Disney villain cards from buzzfeed:
Finally, I saw these instructions from Cones and Clowns for a knotted heart. I think it would be a nice present for a friend who likes statement necklaces.
