Writing Valentine’s Card can be quite difficult, especially if you are not good with spilling your heart out on the paper. Even so, when you know how to charm your loved one with words, there is another problem you might have to tackle with this Valentine’s Day. Finding a perfect Valentine’s Card. A sweet, charming and moreover personal Valentine’s Card.
THE PERFECT VALENTINE’S CARD
First things come first. What kind of Valentine’s Card to look for and where to find it. Before you grab the first Card with a heart printed on the cover, make sure you take the sample card to your hand. And try to feel the paper. The Valentine’s Card you are going to give to your love should be made of thick, smooth paper. It should have a light satin coating on the outside and even lighter satin coating on the inside.
Even though it is easier to write on the card which is left uncoated inside, believe me, you need to look for a card with some satin coating inside, too. Also, don’t forget about the envelope. I advise you to get the envelope on your own and use the envelope that comes with the card only if it’s a nice one. You should look for an envelope with some unique details inside.
THE VALENTINE’S CARD MOTIFS
One advice, look for Valentine’s Card that carries the message you want to say to your love one. Still don’t get anything too kitschy. The minimal yet elegant design works best, believe me. You can always make it more personal and unique by glueing on some Swarovski crystals or slipping some chocolate hearts into the envelope. To put it short, if you can’t find a perfect motif than buy a blank card and personalise it. Still, don’t get me wrong, that blank card should have some nice finishing touches.

HOW TO WRITE VALENTINE’S CARD
Before you go to Pinterest and pin dozens of love quotes that might be useful let me tell you this the worst idea. Even though you might spend hours searching for some pretty love quotes on the internet, doing so shows you lack of creativity and love. Rather than copying a love message write down something on your own.
I know, this sounds complicated. Not to say a mission impossible. However, it’s not. Writing Valentine’s Card it’s much easier than you think. Simply write about how you felt when you first met her/him or how you feel every morning when you open your eyes and see her/him beside you. Write how much you love her/his fragrance, how you love to watch the sun rays kissing her hair and skin. Don’t worry you don’t need to be a writer or a poet to write this down.
Merely close your eyes, go back to the moment you want to describe and start writing. You can help yourself with a mind tree before you start spilling your heart out on Valentine’s card. Make a node for a fragrance, light, your feelings (butterflies in your stomach, heat, etc.), what he/she wore, her/his hair. Then write everything you remember of that moment. After that review your mind tree and put the words from it into a story. Meaning, add your feelings to the descriptions of him/her. You know what I mean? If not, copy that mind tree to Valentine’s card. Yes, it won’t sound so poetic and romantic as the love quote from the internet. It will be real and unique instead. Just as your love is.
After you finish writing, spray the card and seal the envelope with a kiss.
