Celebrate Your Loved Ones with Handmade Cards

Ah, Valentine’s Day — the day with love in the air, heavy chocolate consumption and procrastinating boyfriends/husbands and girlfriends/wives flooding grocery stores and flower shops with last-minute shopping. At its core, Valentine’s Day is all about showing appreciation for the people who you love most in your life. Whether it’s a significant other, friends or family, we all have a Valentine in our life. Take the time to show them that you appreciate them and love them by doing something special on the 14th this year! It could be a card, a nice dinner or even just a hug — whatever you can do to spread a little love.

Today, we’ve got a card sketch idea for you in case you’re looking for a last-second thoughtful gift!

Check out their answers below!
