Are you tired of buying the same old bulk Valentine’s Day cards? If you’re a crafter like me then you’re looking for a creative solution. I adore watercolor and it’s so popular right now. How would you like to make tons of custom easy watercolor cards in no time with your Cricut? Today we’re going to show you how!
You don’t have to be a master artist to make these Easy DIY Cricut Valentine’s Day Cards. Just a few supplies, some creativity, and you’ll be in business! To finish off this project we used a fun “Happy Valentine’s Day” cut file that we got off our great membership website Makers Gonna Learn. Check it out along with 150+ other files for every occasion. You’ll love learning how to make these cards.
- Large Plastic Bag
- Black Marker (optional)
- Cricut Maker
- Weeding Tool Set
- Pink Cricut Vinyl
- Transfer paper
- Lay the plastic bag down and start designing your watercolor pattern. Get creative. It might not look great on the bag but it will look great once you’re finished.
- Once you’re satisfied with your color pattern, take a piece of cardstock and in one motion lay it face down onto your design while twisting the paper. This will mesh the colors and give the project that true watercolor feel.
- When the paint has dried cut it into a folding card and cut out your design with your Cricut.
- Add transfer paper to apply the vinyl easier onto the card.
- Remove the transfer paper very gently so you don’t rip the cardstock. Once you’re finished simply write in the card and give them to all your friends and family.
BONUS TIP: Don’t have a Cricut or want to cut down on crafting time? Instead of adding a vinyl design, simply take a black marker and get creative with words and phrases that celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Wasn’t this such a neat DIY? I love creating these cards. The fact that no two will ever look the same is such a unique thing. Step outside the card box and create fun and simple homemade cards for all your Valentines. I hope you enjoyed watching the video or reading along to the tutorial. Happy Valentine’s Day!
