Music Valentine’s Day Card DIY from Vintage Sheet Music – Free Printable

Printable Music Vintage sheet music for piano

This free printable music-themed Valentine’s Day card was inspired by vintage piano sheet music that I found in a Brooklyn antique store. I originally bought the vintage sheet music thinking they might make nice wedding save-the-dates or wedding cards someday.

I tucked this vintage sheet music away in my crazy crammed craft closet and just recently re-discovered it (funny how that works). And I’ve never been a particularly mushy Valentine’s Day person but the lyrics really hit a (ahem) note: “Just because you’re you, that’s why I love you. Just because you’re you, what more can I say?”

I scanned in the piano music, retouched it, turned it into a red-backed card, and added “For My Love” notes with red hearts on the front. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day card to make for your music-loving Valentine.

Step 2: Cut out the Valentine’s Day card

You can use scissors but here’s how to get a super straight cut: Line up your metal ruler on the guides on the printable card on top of a self-healing mat. Run your X-Acto knife along the ruler to cut out. TIP: Just cut it out from the center rather than cutting the whole strip off so that you can still see the guides as you cut each side.

Step 3: Fold the valentine in half

Here’s how you get a really crisp edge on your card: Place the card face down on a self-healing mat. Place a metal ruler just to the left of the middle of the card and run a bone folder along the ruler to score the card.

Fold along the scoring – voila! A perfect fold.

Then lightly run your bone folder on the outside of your folded card to crisp the crease. Write a love note inside and tuck into an A6-sized red envelope.

Thanks for the printable! It's great - so cute! Would you consider making the plain sheet music available as a pdf, too? I have another project in mind that would be best without the red sentiment...

@Amy O, sure, what did you have in mind? Did you want the whole sheet of paper or just the cropped area that was on the card? Color-corrected to white or the original scan that looks weathered? In return I'd love it if you could share what you make with it either tweet a pic to @merrimentdesign or post on the MerrimentDesign.com FB wall? Or old school email and I'll share it for you. Whaddya think?
