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.

Print out my free printable Valentine’s Day card from vintage sheet music (PDF) in color on white cardstock paper.
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.
