The Valentines Day Cards Guide - A Guide to the Different Styles

As you may have already found out, navigating the jungle of Valentine cards may be overwhelming, especially if you're not quite sure what it is you want to find - what kind of artistic style that would fire up your sweethearts flame?

So here is an overview or a guide to some of the most typical artistic styles of Valentine cards.

Antique Valentines Day Pictures with Real LaceOld antique Valentine card with lace.

From around 1850.

Around this time Valentines started to become really popular as technological advances pushed Valentines into mass production.

This type Valentine card was one the earliest types made popular and os characterized by real creative craftsmanship with lots of neat lace, ribbons and paper cuttings decoratively glued onto the card.

This makes the Valentine card not only nice to look at but also special to touch as the relief surface naturally goes up and down when you slide your finger across it.

Photographic Valentines Day cards were quite popular in the beginning of the 1900s, starting with the late Victorian Era.

These types of Valentines are typically held in the old style brownish colors with small specks of sharp colors here and there that make nice decorative contrasts.

These Valentine pictures would typically either just feature a pretty woman holding on to popular Valentine symbols like a heart or roses (like in the photo to the right) or sometimes they would show a couple in love hugging or otherwise showing each other affection.

Vintage Cards with Valentines Poems

Vintage Valentine card of a little girl inside a heart with long pink ribbons hanging down.

Many of the old Valentines cards from the early 1900s are often very colorful, decorative and artistic.

The beautiful drawing or painting to the right is typical in the sense that it features a heart in which we see a woman's head. You will find many portraits of women inside hearts when you search for Valentines cards.

This type of Valentine pictures will often be further decorated with a small Valentine poem that is supposed to tell the woman of a man's affectionate feelings.

'To my Sweetheart'

'I feel so happy when I think of you
Let's be one instead of two.'

(Yes, around that time it were only men that sent Valentines - for a woman to do it would be quite socially unacceptable. Funny enough, statistics say that today woman tend to send more Valentines than men. Interesting development, right!).

Valentines Cards with a Cute Little Cupid

Free Valentine Day picture: Old Valentine card of woman and Cupid hiding his bow and arrow.

Yes, Cupid with his bow and arrow is also to find on many, many Valentines Day cards. Cupid is the god of passionate love and thus fits perfectly into the love theme Valentine's Day.

Most often on Valentine cards you will find the sweet the little cupid angel aiming at the woman or the little girl.

In this way Cupid is often indirectly portrayed as the man's or the little boy's helper. Because if the woman or girl get hit by one of Cupid's arrows, she will be filled with limitless love and passion.

What every man dreams of, I guess! :-)
