The Great Valentine Exchange!

Tue Jan 31, 2012, 2:49 PM by thesmallwonder:iconthesmallwonder:




:heart: Love is in the air!


Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and we're big on love here at deviantART! Whether it's the love of someone's gallery, the glomping of that friend who's always there for you, or the devotion you share with that special someone, February 14th is the perfect day to remind those around you how much they bring to your life. One of the great Valentine's Day traditions is giving and receiving heartfelt messages between friends, family, lovers, or even secret admirers. This year, we wanted to add digital deviance to the tradition by introducing the Great Valentine Exchange!

:heart: How does it work?


We've created a gallery just for the Great Valentine Exchange gallery, and we need your help filling it with love-inspired creations. Design a card, compose a poem, liberally apply hearts, glitter, or seal it with a kiss! We hope to be chock full of Valentine's Day-oriented deviations in any design you choose for all kinds of recipients!

On February 13th until the 19th, a "Send Valentine" button will magically appear on all deviation pages in the Great Valentine Exchange gallery, which will allow all deviants to send your hand-made valentines to their fellow deviants. You'll also be able to send your gift anonymously or include a message if you so choose.



:heart: Heart-filled hints


Remember, the valentine deviation you upload will be available for everyone to send. So you might want to avoid putting a specific deviant’s username on it.

You can upload as many valentine deviations to the gallery as you want!

Fallen in love with one of your designs? If you've included text suggesting it's for a lover, resubmit the design as if it were to a friend or from a secret admirer!

You can send valentines without uploading any of your own, but why not make another deviant's Valentine's Day by sharing your artistic gift with the world?


So, what are you waiting for? Check out the Great Valentine Exchange to upload your valentine, and bring on the love! :love:

Found out: You have to submit your deviation to community projects/holidays/2014/Valentines...
you can edit your deviation and change it.

I'm having some issues... I have only seen the button a couple of times, and that was for another person's deviations... Will I not be able to send valentines until I make one??

I guess I'm just a bit confused... I'll try to figure it out. ^_^

I'm having a problem.
I sent only 1 card to one person now the "Send Valentine" button isn't showing up for any other deviations.
Is there a glitch in the system or are you only allowed to send one card once?
