Stuff Toys Have All Heart on a Card
I just love Valentine's Day greeting card with this image of a stuff toy bear with a patch on its head. It shows that it may have seen better days. The patchwork shows the love that this little bear is loved by someone special. He is holding a heart with the word "Love!" in the middle of it. This word can be changed to anything you would like it to be. "Hug" "Kiss!" "Sweetie!" "Sheri!" Add your own verse on the inside of the card.
This design is ideal for sweethearts of all ages from children to adults.
Valentines Were Popular in the 1800's
Still Are Popular Today
The 1800's were a very popular time in Europe with the paper Valentines. Many of these were homemade.
Today's technology has allowed a person to shop for that perfect gift and card online. Electronically a person can personalize their own message and photo before buying it and sending it out.
Below is a collection of my Valentine's Day greeting cards and and can be found on postcards on Zazzle. Both modern and vintage images on these cards from Sandyspider Gifts: Valentines on Zazzle and Sandy Mertens Valentine's Cards on Amazon. The cards on Amazon are from 3DRose where you can find all of Sandy Mertens designs 3/4's down each of the product pages.
Cupid is the Symbol of Love
Vintage Designs on Cards
Cupid is usually pictured as a chubby naked child. Often times with wings because cupids can fly. Personally I have yet to see one of these non-humans flying around with bows and arrows. Watering flowers or handing out a bouquet of flowers.
However I do love the images on cards. These vintage designs go back to the early 1900's. It seems sweet to see a darling cherub or cupid with a bouquet of red or pink roses. A kiss of affection from the boy is cute.
Then there is sadness in the card titled "When Shall We Meet". This could represent a long distance relationship or a new relationship. Perhaps a long lost love and trying to rekindle the past.
Vintage or Modern Look to Greeting Cards
I love the vintage look
Special Valentines Cards
From Vintage to Modern
Something special about the Victorian times with the women dressed up in their full skirted dresses and large flower bonnets. Love the Victorian lady in a heart cameo. So much detail to this card. Red hearts and blue flowers are roped together in border around the cameo. A cupid is reading a book. Could it possibly be the book about love or a love spell?
The second card is a cute vintage card of a little boy and girl sharing a kiss, with the bonnet so large that one cannot see their faces. Next to that is a modern card of a young couple sitting on the couch. On the inside it says, "I like you!" Course this quote can be changed to anything.
Below is a favorite of mine for it is in my personal collection of a real postcard that I own. With the date of 1908 stamped on the back of the card and was scanned in for products on Zazzle as in the Valentines greeting card shown here.
Verse from Bread and Music by Conrad Aiken
Public domain poem dated 1917
Inside the Victorian Valentines Couple with Verse Card is a verse from the poem titled Bread and Music.
"For it was in my heart you moved among them,
And blessed them with your hands and with your eyes;
And in my heart they will remember always,—
They knew you once, O beautiful and wise."
