How to Use Love Quotations and Inspirational Verses in Your V-Day Cards
My dad was an excellent card finder, no matter what the holiday. It was legendary in our family how he'd spend sometimes an hour looking for the right card. Not only did said card need the right image, but it also needed to be filled with the right saying or inspirational quotes about life and love. He determined what verses fit the person for whom he was buying the card. If he didn't find a card with the right sentiment, he went to another store. That's how serious he was about buying greeting cards.
When you're making your own DIY Valentine cards and tags for your V-Day gifts, you can do the same. No, you won't go store to store -- unless you want to -- but you can fill your card crafts with romantic Valentine love quotes or inspirational quotes on relationships. And with enough help, you can find the right sentiment for the person for whom you're making the card.
The inspirational quotes and sayings about love that I've included below come from a broad range of sources, and while the purpose of this article is to give you ideas for quotes for the DIY greeting cards that you make, you can also use these wise sayings about love in your eCards, in store-bought V-Day cards and in love journals as well.
Come back often this month and in the first part of next month for more Valentine love quotes and tutorials on how to make Valentine cards.
