Cards are always a good thing to make for special occasions. They're pretty easy, and even though they might end up being cheaper than the ones you can buy in the shops, that little personal touch is priceless!

Here's one I designed for Valentine's day.

Step 1: Getting your materials together

You will need:

- Card - A4 size
- Scissors
- Pencil - a light one that you can rub out or colour over so it won't show
- Ruler

This card requires you to be able to draw a face. So if you aren't sure of your artistic abilities you might also want the template below. Or, in its original size, here: http://www.instructables.com/files/orig/F2V/H9LP/FCTI5KUQ/F2VH9LPFCTI5KUQ.bmp
Top one looks like me and my BF!! Lol!
<strong>hey look what i made!!!!&nbsp;:)<br /> i'm going to give it to my boyfriend<br /> we've been together for a year now <br /> whoa!!!</strong><br />
btw he's the one on the left side <br /> we sorta look like a lez couple though <br /> cause he has long hair too <br /> :)<br />
very cute lol, I am using this for our 1 year also!<br>and that is funny about the long hair lookin lez thing XD
haha cool<br>good luck!!!
Your idea was brilliant and creative. I enjoyed it. Thanks(:
Do you know how to get a girlfreind for me.an ugly dude???????????????????//
Hmm I wish I had a girlfriend right now to give this to, but perhaps I should just send it to random girls I know and see what kind of response I get.
Yeah...same here...all aboared the lonely train...*sighs* oh well...thx for the idea of sending to random girls...mabye I might find another new girlfriend...
same here
this is great!
Thanks for the great idea! I used a real photo of us kissing for the card since I'm not the best drawer :)&nbsp;
OK...here's the old folks version of your card...please note the granny &quot;diamonds&quot; on my eyeglasses!&nbsp; LOL
OK, what am I doing wrong that my pic didn't post???&nbsp;
How did you go about posting it?<br />
I went to add images, then&nbsp;(upload, My computer) and&nbsp;Browse.&nbsp; My pic uploaded and had the word &quot;add&quot; under it.&nbsp; I clicked on &quot;add&quot; which I assumed would add it to the post, but apparently it didn't.&nbsp; <br /> <br /> The &quot;upload&quot; tab has a box in the center and, in orange writing says &quot;Upload new images/files using&nbsp;the Browse button <em>above</em>&quot;...but the Browse button is&nbsp;NOT above, it's below.&nbsp; Not that that should change&nbsp;whether something uploads&nbsp;or not.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Now,&nbsp;if I try to re-upload the card, it's apparently somewhere in the system because it says &quot;kiss card.jpg&quot; and then [remove} in orange which seems <br /> to suggest the pic is there somewhere.&nbsp; There's a small circle to the left of the words &quot;kiss card.jpg&quot;&nbsp;that looks as if you are supposed to click on it, but it's greyed out and can't be clicked.&nbsp; When I go to &quot;my library&quot; it's empty.<br /> <br />
Hmm. I don't know what's wrong there. I get an option to try the new flash uploader. Perhaps that will work.<br /> <br /> If that fails then you could upload it to something like imageshack and then post a link on here.<br /> <br /> <br />
&nbsp;Very good idea for a card. Just made one myself.&nbsp;
Wow! I never thought I'd get so much interest in my card, not to mention two years after posting it!<br /> <br /> Thanks for all your great comments everyone. The photos are especially neat.<br /> <br /> If you made one for this year I hope it goes down well with your significant other.<br />
I make cards for all occasions for my family and friends and have&nbsp;been stressing on a card idea&nbsp;for hubby for Valentine's day...none of&nbsp;my ideas&nbsp;seem&nbsp;&quot;just right&quot;.&nbsp; Then lo and behold, Instructables and YOU come along to save the day!<br /> <br /> GREAT&nbsp;card...I can't wait to make it this afternoon!&nbsp; (BTW, this old gal has been married for 41 years and STILL&nbsp;likes to kiss&nbsp;my old man!)
&nbsp;Thank you so much! This was a memorable addition for the v-day gift I will be giving to my partner this year! &nbsp; :-D
this is great! i'll give this to my girlfriend who says she wants "nothing" for her birthday..
Yeah it shoud say...&quot;I couldn't find any nothing , so I made this for you&quot;
This would be awesome, but, im cursed or somthin... because i always get dumped EXACTLY one week before Valentines Day...I guess I could make one for my Companion Cube...or my dog...or somthin...
I absolutely love this!&nbsp; I've made one for my hubby who is currently in Haiti with the Canadian Navy and won't be back until March (I guess I'll just have to save it until then).&nbsp; The template is great because it gives you a place to start.&nbsp; Way to go!<br />
I like kissing, I like to kissssss a lot!<br />
&nbsp;So Nice! Thanks.
that is really cool!<br />
&nbsp;This has to be one of the best cards you can make, this is great, good idea i will make one for my girlfriend&nbsp;
I'm definitely going to use this!<br /> <br /> You're going to make me look like a genius!<br />
I love it! My friend's birthday is coming up, I think I'll edit so it's man on man. She is obsessed with gay men right now.
lol thats kool lol :) <br />
Ahh, I wish someone had sent me one of these. This is a lovely idea :). Maybe next year.......xx
nice! i'm making one right now. after i'm done, i'll post a pic.
Here it is! I used white cardstock paper, and constructed it a little differently. I used little paper hinges underneath instead of folding it over. It looks pretty good, if you can tell. It's based on the photo we took a few years ago.
this is a very cool instructable. you should enter this into the valentine's day contest...unless it's just for candy, i don't know, but either way very interesting =)<br/>
great job!
really cute i am going to try it now that valentine's day is near thx for posting !!

Thanks for all your kind comments! I'm glad the design worked for those of you who've made one already, and I hope it works out for you if you're planning to.
My wife loved it. She said it was the coolest card she's ever seen. THANKS!
This is an awesome card! I printed it and made it for my wife for Mother's day. We've been married five years and have three little boys. She is my love... Anyways, it worked out fine with no major adjustments. All I had to do was work the folds a little tiny bit. Very good Instructable. OUTSTANDING... I'll let you know what my wife says when she gets to see it.
I made this card for my boyfriend a couple of nights ago. He loved it! I edited the measurements just a bit to make them work for the paper I was using. Turned out great!
this is legit. i think im going to ask my girl to prom with it
I will definitely make one for my girlfriend! Awesome Instructable!
