It’s that time of the year again when you can whole-heartedly express your feelings for someone you love. Yes, Valentine’s Day is here! So, how do you plan to surprise your girlfriend this time around? Flowers and gifts, maybe chocolates? Isn’t that a bit too common and lets just say passé. It’s time to think out of the box and we are here to help. How about pampering your beloved with a personalized Valentine’s Day card made especially for her by your very own hands. No, we are not suggesting the whole chart paper and glue routine. All you will need is your faithful computer and your old but mostly ignored buddy, the printer.
Why a printable card?
Making an e-card is convenient and there would be thousands sending the same e-card to their girlfriends. Just create it online and send it via the e-mail. But that makes it look almost like a chore and you certainly wouldn't want that. The alternative is to purchase one from a card gallery and give it to her along with other gifts. But that too would be too plain jane and uninteresting. However, nothing would fit in better for Valentine’s Day than a card with your personal touch to it. So, roll up your sleeves and get ready to put in all your efforts to make a card that would truly make the day memorable for both of you. And be smart; use your computer to do the precision work for you and of course your printer to make it come to life.
Customize the card your way
Make the best use of the resources that you have and it’s okay if you don’t have many all you need is your computer and printer anyway. You can get loads of Valentine’s Day images from the Internet creative commons and deviant art are amazing websites to collect material and customize as per your requirements. You can customize your greeting card with the help of Paint.Net, which is a free photo editing software available on the net and is also extremely easy to use. You can also put a photograph of you with her on the card, top it up with the colors and designs of her liking and watch her smile ear to ear. You can also source paper from online stores, get it delivered and use it for your card. But before you go about that business just make sure that your printer can print greeting cards.
Tips on what to engrave on the card
Whatever you write, make sure that should the best stuff you’ve ever written. After all, it is for the one you love, the one who is or perhaps will be your life partner. So, ignite the poet in you and weave verses that can make her feel that she is indeed the special one in your life. Recall how you felt when you met her for the first time or on your first date with her and come up with words that would truly pamper her and give her bragging rights when she props up your greeting card on her table.
Of all the presents that you give to your valentine, the card you made for her would be the most cherished one. So wipe the dust off that printer and print the best Valentine’s Day card.
