Print It: Watercolor Valentines

Valentines-2014-1-Design-Crush

One of my 2014 resolutions for Design Crush is to bring more of my own DIY projects to light, so we’re starting what will hopefully be a monthly series with these printable watercolor valentines! I had the best time pulling out my watercolors and gold paint and creating these – write your words on the back or string them up to make a fast and festive garland. Choose from the valentines above or a blank set to add your own touches. Download below!

Download: A Valentine

Valentine13-1-Design Crush

A few years ago I made this same valentine as a paper craft card for friends and family, and it showed up in some mailboxes sans eyeballs (they’d fallen off!). The other day I decided to recreate it as an eyeball-safe card to share with you and your valentines! The PDF download below includes two folding cards to print on 8.5 x 11″ paper (letter size). It’s for personal use only, but you smart cookies already knew that!
