Valentine Card Ideas – “You Rock” Theme – with photo & candy

This year’s Valentine card ideas featuring the “You Rock” Theme:

My friend Adrienne suggested a theme for this year’s Valentine’s Day cards that piqued my interest.   She was looking around for a card that went along with the “Rockstar” vibe.  Each year, I try to create a photo card for my kids that has matching candy.  I loved the idea of having “You Rock” as the greeting because it doesn’t imply anything lovey-dovey which might make my older son uncomfortable.

My first thought for Jordyn’s card was to pair it with fruit roll ups and have the Rock & “Roll” combo.  I ditched that, though, when I couldn’t figure out how to combine them.

Instead, I came up with this…

The font used is Olympique which I got the idea to use from another rock themed card.  I bought some colorful rock candy from Party City which I added to the left of the card.  In the interest of saving money, I sized the card 4×3 so that I could fit two on a 4×6 print.

For Nathan, I used Pop Rocks. We recently bought a drum set, so that was the scene for his rock theme.  Again, I fit two of these on a 4×6.  (This card was inspired by a post from another blog.)

Nathan is my minerals and rocks obsessed kid so the next card was originally intended for him.  (He decided he’d rather have drums, though, so Ben became the subject of this one.)  I found some chocolate rocks on Amazon that I divided into little baggies and then created a card similar to this one.  I printed this at a full 4×6 so that there would be enough room for the baggy.
