Looking for a fast and easy non-treat Valentine Coloring Card for your kids to pass out on Valentine’s Day? These Valentine Coloring Cards can be easily made using my FREE SVG Files with any cutting machine or use the FREE PDF file to cut them out individually.
The great thing about these Valentine Coloring Card files I designed is I also included blank templates (2 versions) for any holidays or occasions you need them for. This way you can upload them into your cutting machine software and add your own pictures or elements and text.
If you are looking for easy Valentine’s Cards that I designed in Cricut Design Space you can find 12 of them here. They are fast and easy to make as well and have sentiments for the inside of the cards as well.
And if you need some inspiration for some fun and loving Valentine quotes for your sweetie, #24 you can find here is one of my favorites!
FREE CRAYON HOLDER TEMPLATES
The FREE Files for this project is located here in my Resource Library.
I included the following formats so no matter which cutting machine you have or even if you don’t have one yet, you can use the pdf file to print, then cut with scissors.

HOW TO MAKE VALENTINE COLORING CARDS USING YOUR CRICUT
UPLOAD FREE FILES INTO CRICUT DESIGN SPACE
Locate the free files in my Resource Library here.
Open Cricut Design Space and click on “new project”.
Select “upload image” then either browse your computer where you saved the FREE Files or if you saved them to your desktop you can simply drag them into where it shows “Drag and Drop” here.
Next, you will see the files on your Cricut Canvas Screen.
The files will all be grouped together. You will need to “Un-Group” your files once or twice usually.
Decide which cards you do not want to make and turn those layers off in the layers option by selecting the “eye” icon. Or you can delete them if you know you will not want it ever.
In the video I made I used 2 cards as an example, but you can make as many Valentine Coloring Cards as you like.
SET UP YOUR FILES TO PRINT THEN CUT IN CRICUT DESIGN SPACE
If you are new to this process, I highly recommend watching the video. I go through each step on both cards. You can do each step and pause the video if needed while you work on your cards.
I will briefly explain the process here though just in case you are unable to watch the video now.
First and Foremost, Design Space has a size limit for print then cut projects. At this time the biggest size is W=6.75″ X L=9.25″.
I designed these cards to fit 2 cards per print page if you keep them the size I made them.
STEP 1- ATTACH ELEMENTS TO PRINT TO CARD BASE
Select the elements in the layers panel (hold down the shift key for multiple selections) and then select the card layer base and click on “Attach”. This tells the Cricut you want the elements to actually print on the card base.
STEP 2 – CHANGE THE CUT LINE THAT YOU WANT TO BE A SCORE LINE
Select the 2 solid lines that are meant to be score lines instead of cut lines. Then go to “Operation” at the top of Design Space and change “Basic Cut” to “Score”.
STEP 3 – ATTACH CUT LINES AND SCORE LINES TO CARD BASE
Select the Score Lines and the Cut Lines while holding the Shift key and then select the Card Base. This tells Cricut you want the card base to be cut and scored.
STEP 4 – ATTACH 2 CARDS CLOSE TOGETHER AND ATTACH
Move your 2 cards close together (side by side) and click on “Attach”.
This tells Cricut you want those 2 cards to print on one full 8.5″ X 11″ size paper.
Yay! You are now ready to click on “Make It” in the upper right hand corner and send it to your printer to print!
Once you print the 2 cards out, you are ready to run it through your Cricut to Score and Cut.
Once fully cut, simply remove from your mat and fold the 2 score lines up and insert your Crayons of choice.
