How To Make Print Then Cut Valentine Cards

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and instead of searching for the perfect card, why not try homemade valentines? Today we are making Print Then Cut Valentine Cards with a cutting machine.

These adorable cards are a great way to celebrate the one you love while learning the basics of your cutting machine’s Print Then Cut feature. I’ve included two full video tutorials for both the Cricut Maker and Silhouette Cameo 4. You’ll have so much fun with friends and family members creating these cute cards.

How To Download The Valentine Card SVG Files

These cards are digital designs available for purchase in the SVG Shop. The Valentine’s bundle includes four different card designs, a matching envelope, and a bookmark.

The cards measure 5.5 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide and the inside of the card is blank, so you can add your own personal message. The card designs come in different layers, so you can use thick paper for your foldable card backing and send the thinner material (65 lb.) through your printer.

The files are available in SVG, DXF, EPS, PNG, and PDF file formats. Most cutting machines use the SVG file type. Here is a link to the SVG Shop.

Inspiration For This Project

The inspiration for these cards came from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. Most often, when we think about Valentine’s Day, we think about romance. But many of us have been deeply impacted by the kindness of a friend, and the enduring, faithful love of a parent, grandparent, sister, or brother.

I often think of the big hugs my kids would give me when they came home from school. For me, the best love is unconditional. My spouse has demonstrated this love to me on occasion, but the best example of this is God’s love for us.

In this design, I wanted to create a layered pattern, with bright cheerful colors and a simple message.
