These new Vintage Valentine Cards for Friends are for all of your deer ones...especially those that appreciate a good vintage vibe. This little guy looks like he walked straight off of a 1940s Valentine, which is the look I was going for. Hoping it's enDEERing to you, too. 

Vintage Valentine Cards for Friends
I miss the old Valentines of my childhood. Don't get me wrong, the fun candy and little toy exchanges with Valentines in my kids' classrooms were fun, but I miss the old fashioned card-style Valentine with a hand-written note inside. I also remember the nights leading up to Valentines and meticulously writing out all of my cards to my classmates...with my mother nearby reminding me to say something kind and personal about each and every classmate. I tried to mimic that look of a vintage Valentine with today's printable cards. While I grew up in the 80s, I still have such nostalgia for this little look I tried to capture here. Download these Vintage Valentine Cards for Friends below.

While I normally do design options with or without the background, this time, I just lightened the background for the second option. When I took it away completely, our little deer friend looked like he was floating a bit. So, I feel like even a tiny bit of background grounds him to the page a bit. Nobody wants a floating deer, right?

Above, the lighter plaid card still has lots of Valentine pop throughout it. Plus it can save you a smidge of ink. 

Printing and Using Your Vintage Valentine Cards

  • These Vintage Valentine Cards for Friends are for personal use. However, if you do own a small business or shop and would like to carry the printed, physical versions of these cards, you may purchase a commercial license to do just that here. Reselling or redistributing any of my digital items (not printed) is not allowed.
  • Make sure to print your cards onto white, letter-sized cardstock. Regular paper is far too thin for greeting card printing. Purchase a pack of white, letter-sized cardstock here on Amazon.
  • After your card is printed, simply cut it out of the cardstock. I provided a small, pink hairline that runs around the perimeter of each card to make this easy. I also recommend a paper cutter if you're cutting a multiple cards. I have owned this Fiskars Paper Trimmer for many years and love has a small wire that acts as a cutting guide and it's very exact. Grab the same paper trimmer here on Amazon. Of course, good ol' scissors work quite well, too.
  • After your card is cut out, fold it in half. Run your finger (or the handle end of your scissors) along its fold to smooth out any creases.
  • Now here comes my favorite part of the card...write your own Valentine message inside the card for your deer friend.
  • Envelope information is available below.
