Download these 36 free printable Happy Valentine’s Day Cards to print and share with your kids classroom, your students, or your own friends. With a simple sentiment, playful hand lettered designs and a variety of colors to choose from, there’s sure to be the perfect valentines card for everyone you’re sending to.
This year when I asked my kids what types of cards they’d like to hand out for valentines day at school, my son told me he just wanted simple valentines cards that say, ‘happy valentine’s day’. Not a funny pun saying how much he likes everyone or asking anyone to be his valentine or a card expressing his valentine’s day love being out of this world.
He wanted a simple card and didn’t care which color or shape or design… only that it was a basic valentine greeting. You got it, kid!
Typically I’d tell him to pull out the construction paper and design his own card… but now that I have a site full of free printable card templates… I figured it was the perfect opportunity to not just create a boring ol’ design but a suite of fun valentine’s cards with a few color scheme options and a modern feel.
So today I’m excited to share these printable valentine’s day cards as a free download with you! This is the 9th valentine card I have shared this year… you can see them all at the bottom of this post!
They’re perfect for older kids that don’t want to find the right words in a pack of childish valentines cards, but they’re also perfect for me… Or other adults like me that want to send lots of love to their girlfriends even if it’s been a long time since they got to see them every day at school (and voice text about how much grocery prices have jumped). If you end up with one of these in your mailbox, friend… wish I got to see you every day at school 😉
You can use these free printable valentine cards as is or pair them with a little gift… perhaps some candy in a clear bag taped to the back as a sweet valentine treat or a little gift like the bracelets I’ve paired them with… or skip the additional cost and add your own personal touch with a little note on the back.
Not one for heartfelt messages? Skip it and just sign your name… really, these cards are the baseline valentine. But cuter 😉
I just used double sided tape to tape on the bracelets- the size is really perfect for that.

What’s the best way to print these free Valentine’s Day cards
You can print free printables any way you like, but I have a couple suggestions to make the most of them! While every free printable is different, these printable cards are simple 8.5×11″ PDF documents which makes them incredibly easy to print at home or at your local print shop. They will print just like a document, without special settings like a photo.
I prefer to print any bag or gift tags or greeting cards like these square valentines cards on a thick paper like cardstock. They look more professional and hold up better to being passed out this way, much like a store-bought quality card.
I’ve designed these printables with a white background to save on ink if you are using your home printer, but there is still a fair bit of colour in the designs. I also left the reverse blank so you can add your own little note, tape a treat, or just save on printer ink 😉
So make sure you select single sided printing when you send to print!
Since they do use a little more printer ink, this is probably one I’d send up to the printer shop if I were going to print a whole bunch. If I just wanted to print a page or two though, I’d definitely do it at home. There’s really no need for ‘professional’ valentines cards, especially if you’re handing these out as classroom valentines!
You can use a paper cutter instead of scissors for the long straight parts to help the cutting of these files go quickly. We have a slider style paper cutter like this craft one (affiliate link) at home that my kids like to use (paper cutters are way more fun than scissors to little hands!). Since the slider doesn’t detach easily and the blade is really tiny, I feel comfortable even letting my small kids use it for this sort of project.
There’s a total of 36 different designs for you to choose from in this printable PDF. With 6 different hand lettered ‘happy valentine’s day’ designs to a page, each of the 6 pages has a different color theme making them perfect for a large group (everyone’s will be unique).
You can also suit them to each giftee this way. I’ll probably print these off and use these for each family member, I always write them a note with a small gift for valentines day morning. I know my little boy will be excited about the orange one and maybe you’ve got a young girl who loves purple instead of pink… we love options!
Whether you’re a teacher printing these off for all their students or just wanting some cute valentines cards for your adult friends- I hope you so enjoy these printable valentines cards!
