Valentines Day Cards
Love is in the Air!
With Valentine's day fast approaching everyone in this office is hurrying to make their Valentine's day cards (or Anti-Valentine's day cards). Your task for the next couple of weeks is to create your own cards with wonderfully cheesy lines such as "YOUR LOVE MAKES ME BUZZ" and "I'M SENDING YOU THIS MOE-HUG". Do not use the examples we have given, please come up with your own brilliant text. The pictures and text should be Neopian themed. Please make these cards on your own. Your submission should include a picture of your card, what it says/means, what you used to make it in the description. We will judge entries on beauty, creativity, and their overall awesomness. :)
Ten winners receive the Random Contest avatar, 10,000 NP and an item of DOOM.
My valentine had better watch out! Heart theft is a crime!
Pop-up Valentines Day Card
The card reads: "Valentine, I know you think I'm super sweet but please...DO NOT EAT (me)"
My supplies include, card stock paper, glitter, glue, water color paint, a ruler, markers, colored pencils, scissors, & a mechanical pencil
I was inspired by the Pop-Up Valentine Card Background Wearable, & attempted to recreate it in 3D as accurately as possible
The Kadoaties Mew
The Valentines Kadoatie Plushie is my favourite Neopets item, and this Valentines Day I decided to give her to someone special.(:
Process: First, I drew my Valentines Kadoatie Plushie, coloured it with glitter gel pens and colour pencils, then trimmed it. I cut out a pink felt heart, glued it to some red construction paper, and trimmed the red paper into a second heart. Then I cut out a red paper center piece and glued it down with the Kadoatie. I found some old scrap ribbons and held them together with rubber bands, sewed the ribbons to my valentine, and then glued a pink puff in the middle. Gold foil covered cardboard was then trimmed into heart and circle shapes, glued down, and outlined with a glitter pen. Next I sewed two pieces of gold paper ribbon across the middle, and I added the text "You're the Kadoatie's mew Valentine!" to the bottom. The next step unfortunately went awry when my red glitter outline flowed out of the bottle and made a watery mess on some of the paper. I realized my mistake and used a paint brush to outline the pink felt with gold glitter. Then I added some buttons to the pink felt, wrote "Be Mine" on the edges of the center piece, and drew little hearts on the red construction paper. Lastly I glued the entire valentine to a hard cardboard backing for support. The entire process took about 4 hours. Thank you!
Petpet Valentine's Day Cards
Who doesn't love cuddly, cute things on Valentine's Day? But forget the teddy bears and stuffed animals, Petpets are a much better way to tell your sweetie you care.
Card 1: If you want to have a real swell time,
You KIMBI my Valentine! (You can be my Valentine)
Card 2: I fancy you and that's no secret,
You're as nice as a juice-filled MEEPIT!
Card 3: I've searched Neopia near and far,
SNOWBUNNY is as cute as you are! (Nobody is as cute as you are)
"I'd take the fall for you, Valentine! ...From 12,000 feet, to be exact." Does anybody remember the Meridell plot? Where Galgarroth was thrown off the Citadel? I do. Bristol paper and coloured pencils.
It's Not Illegal, But...
My Valentines Card features a pink Gelert who is in love with an unfeatured pet.
Before I began making the card I went through a rigorous pun-making and selecting process. I selected the one I thought was funniest :)
The entire card is made with hard paper. I started by cutting out the card and gluing the edges on. Then I cut out the shape for the gelerts head. I made off pieces for the ears and hair separately. After I finished making the pieces for his face, I pieced and glued it all together. The stubble is made with pink glitter glue. Then I measured and cut up the background for the text inside, and typed up my pun. For those who doesn't get it, it's "Go alert the authorities, cuz I'm in love with you" :D On the other side I decorated with some hearts. At the very end I made the gelerts backside, with a heart tail to represent Valentines/Pink Gelert :)
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
Layers of Love
This Valentine's Day card uses construction paper of assorted colours. As the title states, the card is made of many layers glued onto each other to create a 3-dimensional effect like the faerie pteri on the cover. All images are first drawn on paper, then they are put together to form the content of the card. The cover has a message within the Lovely Valentine Frame while the inside of the card features a few Neopets at the Wishing Well.
You're Super, Valentine!
Who doesn't love getting a sweet treat? Candy turns a "blah" valentine into a "SUPER" one! ~O
For a Pteriffic Valentine!
Now you can give not just one, but two, cards to a very special person this Valentines' day. Well, I suppose you could do that anyway, but the second one is held by a tiny pteri! It has a simple mechanism to let you open it, and close it again (without it re-opening of it's own accord!).
Grarrl's Valentine's Day Card
Are you a boy Grarrl who's deeply in love with a girl Grarrl in secret? This Valentine give her this card so she can find out your love! The joke is the resemblance of the word "girl" with the word "Grarrl". I made the card with a piece of paper and markers.
Twenty lucky people have 5,000 NP, the Random Contest avatar and an item whizzing their way.
A Tyrannian Valentine's Day!
Given recent events in Tyrannia, a Grarrl themed card felt very fitting! The Grarrl's claws are cut out so that she can lovingly hold the origami heart. If you take the heart from her, and unfold it... you can reveal a valentine message to Hanso! Made with different kinds of paper, coloured markers, pencils, glue, and lots of love!
Just like the Techo Fanatic, this hissi is crazy, but about his love! I made this card out of paper and used colour pencils and markers to paint it. The pop-up effect was made with a twisted strip of paper.

I Love You Berry Much!
This is my pop-up card, based on the Neopian fruit called the "Love Berry"! To make it I used photoshop (to draw the art and create the text), my printer, patterned scrapbook paper, scissors, and a glue stick.
Kau in Love
Dear Valentine, Valentine's Day is such a romantic holiday. Love is everywhere. You can feel the red, pink and white in your heart. I love you with all my soul. For you, I have only love and compassion. For you, I will travel the world, high and low. For you, I would fly to the moon and back. For you I will always be there to guide and save you, as well as you will be for me. With you around, I never feel like a Kau-ward. Happy Valentines Day!

U-N-I belong together ;) Materials: construction paper, colored pencils, crayons, glitter flakes, glitter glue, glue, scissors.

Don't You Need Cybunny to Love?
This card is made from 8 different colours of cardstock and has all been lovingly hand cut with very sharp scissors. The card that Sydamesi is holding even says "Be Mine" on the inside. "Don't You Need Cybunny to Love" means Don't you need somebody to love? Happy Valentine's Day!
Gnorbu-dy will love you...
...As much as I do!
A cute, and extremely sweet card showing how much Gnorbu loves you! This card was made using different coloured/patterned papers, scissors, and glue. And, of course, modeled by a beautiful Chocolate Gnorbu!
A Xweet Valentine
How Xwee-T it is indeed :D Happy Valentines Day!!
To create this LOVE-ly masterpiece, I used regular white card for the base. Then I cut a piece of heart fabric and pasted that and the coloured "Xweet" sign between two pieces of white card.
Inside is a drawn, cut and pasted Faerie Xwee holding a red marker coloured heart :) Also used on the inside is a lot of shiny rhinestones and copious amounts of red glitter.
Hearts & XO's are glued on confetti pieces, and all writing is done with black permanent marker.
Hope all your Valentine's were Xwee-T!!!
Lovely, Lovely Puns
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope that everyone is delighted to celebrate it this year! We cannot deny that the world of Neopia is getting more and more exciting even as we speak. One of the events contributing to this excitement is the new Battledome. With so many Neopets in training, there seems to be no time to make Valentine's day cards. The Battledome also makes us think about the 'good' versus the 'bad' sides as well. Due to all of this, I was very inspired to create both Valentine's day cards and Anti-Valentine's day cards. The first card I've created is the "Acara lot about you, Valentine" one. It is a pun in which "Acara" sounds like "I care a". Therefore when you read it, it becomes, "I care a lot about you." The next card is the one with Dr. Frank Sloth. This card is an Anti-Valentine's day card and in this, Dr. Frank Sloth is replying to the Acara card in a witty way by using his own name! The next card is the Koi one. This is another pun in which "Koi" refers to the word "coy." When you read the card, it sounds like "don't be so coy, Valentine!" The final card is Anti-Valentine's day card like the Dr. Frank Sloth one. It features a Kau replying to the Koi card. "Do not Judge/Hog me" said by the Kau is a reference to the excellent Judge Hog who is also a Kau! The Kau in this card does not see herself as "coy" at all. Finally, Each of these cards comes with a shield to represent a 'strength of love', the theme of 'protecting loved ones' and to be a direct reference to the good versus evil theme in the Battledome.
The materials used to make these cards include: Card stock, Construction paper, Print paper, Markers, Acrylic paint, Puzzle pieces, Stickers, Super glue, Glue, Polymer clay that was baked after making them into hearts, and, of course, love!
I created my Valentines Card about Jhudora! Using scissors, paper, pencils and markers, I carefully constructed my card. The card reads "Even When you're angry, you look Jhudora-ble! (adorable)"
A Pirate Valentine
Pictured are three views of my card. The center one, the Meepit, is the front of the card. It states "Sending ye lots o' love from Meepit of me heart!" Opening the card, you are presented with "Have a Heart Valentine's Day" on the left flap and "Weewoo make a wonderful pair o' scallywags!" and "Yer a Tenna of ten!" on the right. To make this seaworthy card, I used a blank sheet of paper, a pencil, pen, and an armada of crayons :D
Pun-y Valentine Cards
Playing with Neopian names in order to create pun-y Valentines Day cards was an opportunity that I couldn't pass up! These four were the best I came up with, so I'm going to begin by translating them in case their meaning isn't entirely apparent. The "I love you Pteri much" card means "I love you very much," "Your love Nox me down" translates into "Your love knocks me down," the card that reads "I don't care what Zei say...You Har my love!" means "I don't care what they say...you are my love!" and, finally, my anti-valentines card that says "Eyrie-member a time...when you were mine..." means "I remember a time...when you were mine...". The cards were all created using construction paper, card stock, scissors, glue, glitter, pencils, pens, and a basic set of 12 colored pencils. The bulk of my time was spent meticulously tracing, coloring, and cutting out the Pteri, Eyrie, and Hubrid Nox on white construction paper and carefully creating the effect of shadows and highlights on them. I am very happy with what I achieved on a college student's budget, and I hope you like them too!
Eliv Thade Valentine's Card
Inspired by Eliv Thade. On the outside: "Our love will never fade", on the inside: "PAHYP LAETNVESI'N ADY!", and anagram for "Happy Valentine's Day!"
Be my Sweet Pea!
I used a CD to make the outline for the pea, colored pencils, and scissors to cut it out.
I am barking mad for you
I used a blank card, black felt marker, acrylic paint, pen, paper.
