Valentines Day Cards SlideRocket Style

By John Rode on February 13, 2012

Leave it to SlideRocket to create Valentines Day cards called the “Unvalentine” and the “Singletine”. Each celebrates Valentines Day in its own special way. With a touch of irreverence and plenty of style, these presentations are worth a view and a share.

The Unvalentine

True, this Valentines Day card is a bit snarky. But look under the sarcastic exterior and you see a hopeful message of finding happiness within yourself.
