Free Funny Valentine Cards Ideas

January 19, 2010

Sometimes the best way to send it with love is to send it with a smile. Here are my favorite free funny Valentine cards ideas you can use for your graphic designs this February.

Cupid's follies: Many an artist has taken advantage of this theme. When Cupid's arrows are misdirected, hilarious things can happen.

Switcheroo: A classic tenet of comedy is to set it up so that your audience thinks you're going one direction then quickly change with the punchline. For example: “My sweetest, your will is the most important thing in my life ... (open card) ... now hurry and get on with it so we can divvy up all this loot.”

Funny animals: Think a dog with a box of chocolates, a monkey counting flower petals or a crooning alley cat are all overdone? Think again – there's a reason funny animal Valentine cards are perennially popular in February.

Awards: It's always funny to give out a humorous award, and you can easily do this by adding a foil stamp to your Valentine cards. In fact, you can come up with a whole series of awards based on stereotypes. For example: “Congratulations! You've won the Least Likely To Remember It's Valentine's Day Award... 20 years running.”

(Not so) sexy: Walk into any novelty gift shop and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. There really is a market for grossly obese, hairy and ugly models!
