Happy almost Valentine’s Day everyone!
Phew. That’s over with.
I’m actually not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. In fact, I’ve never loved it as much as I did when I was a little kid. Little enough that I can remember giving a Valentine to everyone in the class, not just my actual friends. The best part of that of course was the fact that you also got a Valentine from everyone. No one felt bad, no one ended up Valentineless, no one sat silently crying in the coat closet.
So like I said, Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
There are a few things I still love about Valentine’s Day. Things that envelop me in a great big, nostalgic fog like red cinnamon hearts in a bowl, construction paper cupids and vintage looking Valentines.
So for old time’s sake … here’s a vintage Valentine for you to share with someone you love. (I’ll have a link to click on that will bring you to the printable version at the end of the post)
And because not everyone you want to give a Valentine to is a child … here’s an alternative version of the same card. I put my stamp on it. Or more specifically, I put “our” stamp on it. Thanks to all of you who, by leaving a comment on one of my posts, unknowingly contributed to this free, printable Valentine’s card. My little way of saying thanks for reading The Art of Doing Stuff.
To print either card (or just get a better look at the inside of the adult version) just click on the appropriate link below. (child version or adult version) Both cards will print out on a regular 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper so you don’t have to go running around willy nilly looking for cardstock or construction paper or whatever.
For the child’s version, just print and cut out around the Valentine. You can use regular or construction paper if your printer can handle it.
For the adult version, just print out on a standard sheet of paper, then fold your paper in half and then in half again (making sure you’re folding in the centre of the card NOT the centre of the paper) Then cut the excess paper off.
