It should somehow reveal to whom the card is intended to. This anticipates that the totality of the card speaks about feelings towards the expected receiver of the card.

The title of the card is important for it speaks of the card itself. The card must have a cliche title so as to give an impression of enthusiasm and excitement to the recipient.

The design of the cover gives the recipient a fancy feeling. In choosing a card, you must also take into consideration the recipient's personality.

You might intend to give a card in which the design is too loud and lively wherein the recipient is too classy and sophisticated. This might result of loosing the recipient?s interest on opening the card.

The thoughts written on the card.

The card must posses the thoughts you somehow wish to convey. It might not be the exact words but still, the idea is carried out in the card. It could also contain some tricky ideas in which it adds spice and art to the card.

The space provided.
