What to get your loved ones for Valentine’s Day? We all face this challenge every year, so it’s high time to get creative. If you aren’t bent on getting gifts like flowers, chocolates, cookies or aromatic candles for your significant other, consider making a festive card with a photo of you two together.

Classic Valentine’s Day Card

If you’re looking for Valentine’s Day card designs that have stood the test of time, this one will surely satisfy your tastes. In order to create this card I indulged in some old romantic comedies, like “When Harry Met Sally” and “You’ve Got Mail”, and adopted the well-used pink color scheme into my design. Decorated with lovely hearts, a bunch of flowers and an elegant frame, this sweet photo card perfectly suits the occasion and sends tons of love to your significant other.

Pastel Valentine’s Day Card

What I like about this card design is that it’s simple and understated, yet it gets the point across. Love doesn’t have to be expressed in an over-the-top kind of fashion. What’s more a garish Valentine’s Day card would look cheap and insincere. Here softer tones of usual pink and red colors set a romantic mood and let you be especially tender towards your loved one. A heart-shaped frame gives your photo a lyrical look and instantly draws the recipient’s attention to it.

Modern Valentine’s Day Card

With the background image taking up most of the card, this Valentine’s Day card design looks rather fresh and modern. Blending your picture into hearts of all kinds and colors is a great way to avoid trite frames and masks that are usually associated with February 14. The overall color palette is a shade darker than the others presented in this list, so it easily stands out from the crowd of retail greeting cards. If you prefer modern and bold designs, this one seems to be made for you!

Cute Valentine’s Day Card

Like all girls I adore something not too sentimental, but still a little bit sweet. The same goes for Valentine’s Day cards that are received year in year out, and can bore their unfortunate receivers to death. Making a festive card design that is cute and funny is the best way to surprise your better half who expects a common red-and-pink card. Adorn your card designs with cartoonish cliparts and dozens of small hearts, and don’t forget that the chosen text font also plays a key role.
