Last Minute Valentine

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

So we’re going to assume that you’ve sorted your Valentine’s day card thanks to our new ‘Cheesy Valentine’ ecard - but what about a present?

Whether you’ve been trying hard to avoid it or just haven’t had the time to organise anything fancy, Valentine’s Day is almost here. But never fear, Katie’s Cards is here to share some of last minute gift ideas from around the web that just happen to be pretty economical too.

Personalised Sharpie Mugs

You can find design ideas for these all over Pinterest but we really liked the idea of personalised Mr and Mrs mugs. You could even add a special date to the handle. We’ve also heard on the grape vine that the cheaper the mug, the better the result – so don’t worry about raiding your Granny’s china cupboard, a cheap mug from the supermarket or Ikea should do the job.

Who will be your Valentine?

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be about showing your partner how you feel, it’s also a good opportunity to show the many special people in your life that you appreciate them. When I was a child, I remember waking on February 14th to a little handmade gift on my bedside table and, even though I knew it was from my Mum, it made my day.

 Cupid ecard

Some of the Valentine’s Day ecards on the Katie’s Cards website are perfect for parents to send to their children, especially the Cupid’s Aim card. This ecard features an unlikely couple – a spindly giraffe and a stout little warthog – and the fun animation would bring a smile to any child’s face. You can preview the ecard here. It’s an entertaining way to send your Valentine’s Day wishes to one of the people you love, whatever their age may be.

New Valentine’s Day Ecard!

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

We are delighted to announce that there is a new Valentine’s Day ecard on the Katie’s Cards website. The new ecard, entitled ‘Liquid Love’, is more abstract than many of the ecards in the Katie’s Cards collection. The warm palette of colours and the patchwork-like blending of the different hues of red and pink are used to illustrate an abstract, atmospheric image and signals a new creative direction for Katie’s Cards.

Liquid Love Ecard

Watch the bubbles of colour dance gracefully across the screen as calming music lulls the shapes together to form a pulsating heart. It’s the perfect way to tell somebody that you care this February 14th.

Valentine’s Day – What’s not to love?

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

At the beginning of February, you often begin to hear the annual moans of those who claim to hate Valentine’s Day. With restaurants and some retailers hiking up their prices, and with the expectation of romance weighing heavy, it’s not difficult to see why.

However, what’s so bad about having a day which is about cherishing the people and relationships we love? After all, isn’t it love that makes the world go round? Surely even the Valentine’s day nay-sayers would be secretly happy to receive a little love note on February 14th.

We have a selection of ecards on the Katie’s Cards website which cater for a variety of tastes so go on, pluck up the courage to tell that special someone how you  feel.

Everyone knows that one of the best ways to any man or woman’s heart is through their stomach which is why we thought it was a good idea to recommend a couple of romantic recipes for you to impress your loved one with this Valentine’s Day

Red Velvet Heart-Shaped Macaroons

Valentines Day – 1 month to go!

Valentine Flowers Ecard

Valentine Flowers Ecard

Valentine’s Day is now less than 1 month away. For many people Valentine’s Day is about their husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend and buying them a special gift and a card. Sending an ecard for Valentines Day wouldn’t be something that everyone would consider.

Many years ago when visiting the US I was surprised to be given a Valentines Day card from a friend. Their intention was not romance but one of friendship. I don’t know if this was unusual, but I remember thinking that the sentiment was wonderful. Telling someone close to you that you care for them and that you’re thinking of them is something that is often forgotten.

Unfortunately, there is no friends day, Sisters day or Brothers day to appreciate the people in your life. There is no special day to wish all the wonderful people in your life your best wishes and love. I think it’s important to think about and tell these people that you care and that you think of them.

So with less than 1 month to go before Valentine’s Day why not think about sending a Valentine’s Day ecard to those people that are precious in your life. The people that don’t have a special day but would really like to hear that you are there to care and support them.

The Valentines Day ecards at KatiesCards.com are suitable for your friends and family and, of course, your romantic partner too.

Share your love this Valentine’s Day to everyone you care for. Best wishes.

You lift me up. A cute Valentines Day e card. 2012.02.02.

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

When we made this cute Valentines Day ecard I wanted to symbolise the idea that being around someone that you love, who loves you back, can help you to be a more positive person and bring out the best in you. I also wanted a way of animating the age old saying that ‘opposites attract’ which is how I came up with the idea of using a tall lady Giraffe and a chubby little wild boar.

The wild boar finds a way to show the lovely lady Giraffe his gift of a romantic bunch of flowers and with help from Cupid, wins the Giraffes’ heart.

We have a whole range of different Valentines day ecards to choose from so take a browse through our online collection.

I hope you enjoy sending them as much as we have enjoyed making them.

Can you spot all of the film references in this Valentines Day ecard? 2012.01.30

Monday, January 30th, 2012

Hi all,

Valentines Day is on my mind as we only have about 2 weeks to go!

I made the ‘I Love Ewe’ Valentines Day ecard a few years ago. I wanted to make a light-hearted and humurous card that could be sent to the one you love, but also to anyone on this special day to raise a smile. The e card was made up of a series of references to famous romantic films – can you spot them? Take a look, the first person to tell me how many and what film they are from (by posting a comment on this blog) gets a free 1 year subscription!

A Perfect Valentine’s Day Ecard

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

A bit of History

There is a lot written as to the origin of Valentine’s Day. Some Historians have theorised that the event is derived from various historical characters, but the consensus is that the occasion arises from St. Valentine, a Roman who was martyred for refusing to denounce Christianity. He died on February 14, 269 A.D which has become or current day of love and romance. Legend also records that St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailer’s daughter, who had become his special friend, and signed it “From Your Valentine”. Gradually, the 14th of February became the date for exchanging love messages and St. Valentine became the patron saint of lovers. The day was marked by the sending of poems and simple gifts such as flowers.

In the USA, Miss Esther Howland is given credit for sending the very first valentine cards. Commercial printed valentines cards were introduced in the 1800’s and the spirit of love and romance continues today as valentines cards are sent out with sentimental verses and many children exchange valentine cards at school. In recent years the rise of the Valentines Day Ecard has seen the birth of a new way of sending romantic messages to your loved one, and it has become one of the busiest days of the year for Katie’s Cards.

Valentine’s Ecards

If you’re new to e cards, sending them is easier than you might think. Why not visit our e card website, where you can browse the whole e card collection, and then choose the one that works for you. Membership to the site is low cost if you want to send e-cards to friends and loved ones throughout the year. You’ll have access to birthday e-cards, Christmas e-cards, Thanksgiving e-cards, anniversary e-cards, Halloween e-cards, wedding e-cards, and many others.

Once you select an e-card, you’ll be directed to follow the quick and easy steps to customize it. Add your recipient’s name and e-mail address and then send the e-card. Your recipient will receive a notification by e-mail letting them know you have sent an e-card. They must click a link and visit the website to open their e-card online. You’ll also receive a confirmation by e-mail once the e card has been viewed. If you don’t, you’ll want to e-mail your recipient to be sure they received it.
Personalize Your E-cards

The collection of Valentines ecards available at katiescards.com feature a variety of scenarios and designs, giving you a choice of diffeerent moods and emotions.  While creating an e-card, you’ll be given a space to type in a personalized message. Think of something romantic such as a poem or love letter. Or, reveal a surprise date or dinner within your message. Send the e-card to their work e-mail to give them something to look forward to after work. If writing a poem, be sure to limit it to a couple of lines so you’ll be able to fit the entire poem into the message field.
