Valentines Day Cards Research

Card 1

The media and materials that have been used are:

  • ribbon
  • card
  • metal
  • see through card
  • marker pen

The feelings that the media and materials give off are:

  • happy
  • love
  • caring

I get the feeling of love from the card because it shows tiny love hearts with words on them, like the sweets that you can find in a shop. Love hearts are also used to show love and because there is so many it shows that the person who gave it really loves them.

Other elements like the words also convey the feeling of love because they have words written on them like “love me” and “kiss me” which are all things that you would normally do with a loved one. The bright colours used for the love hearts also convey the feeling of happiness because bright colours are normally associated with being happy and so it shows that that person is very happy because they have the person that they loved.

The idea that I have gotten from this card, is the idea to also have words like “love me” and “kiss me” scattered around a card to signify the feeling of love.

 

Card 2

The media and materials that have been used for this card are:

  • pink and red coloured card
  • string

This card gives off the feeling of love and togetherness. I get the feeling of love because the read and pink cards have been cut out in the shape of love hearts, which shows that the two cats within the card love each other. The string shows togetherness because it is trying the two hot air balloons together, which means that they will not drift apart from each other.

There are also other elements that that signify love, for example the wording, the banner in the middle of the hot air balloons spells out the word “hugs” and you only hug people that you love, this word is also the focus point of the card because it has been placed right in the middle and so it is the first thing that you see when you open the card.

I would say that this piece is very effective in conveying it’s intended meaning because it shows the string keeping the balloons together, with the word hugs attach to it, which shows that it is meant to say that hugging keeps the relationship together.

From this card I have gotten the idea of using media to help signify a message, like how the string was used to signify togetherness.

Card 3

The materials that have been used in this card are:

  • cardboard
  • card
  • string

The feeling that I get from this card is the feeling love, I get this feeling because the cardboard has been cut out in to the shape of a heart and hearts are used to show love. The string has also been used to look like the line on a heart monitor because it goes up and down and people who are in love are known for having their hearts beat faster.

The feeling of love is also shown through other elements as well like the test on the right side of the card which says “you make my heart beat faster” this gives off the feeling of love because  they are saying that the person that they like is making their heart beat faster, which is prove that they like them.

I would say that this piece is very effective in communicating it’s intended message because the message is meant to be that the person is in love and because of that their heart id beating faster and this is shown by the string behind the heart which looks like the line on a heart monitor and the words “you make my heart beat faster”.

From this card I have been given the idea of making the material that I use illustrate the words, like how the string and heart illustrate what the words are saying.
