Make Watercolor Valentine Cards

Let me tell you how easy it is to make creative watercolor Valentine Cards. So easy! I would much rather receive and give handmade cards for Valentine’s day, then purchase store bought ones. Wouldn’t you? You can make each card in just a few minutes. You can paint hearts or spell out the word LOVE.

Valentine Watercolor Cards - What You Need

Valentine Watercolor Cards - Mix the Paint


  • The key to watercolor is the freshness of each stroke.
  • Take your brush and wet it with water. Then mix a good amount of paint on the brush.
  • Start painting each letter on the card. Once you paint a stroke on the paper, do NOT go back over it.
  • After each stroke, wet your brush with a little water and more paint. Spell out the letters L-O-V-E
  • Let dry, and that’s it. Clean your brush with the water and let dry on the paper towels.
