Create a cute smiley heart card for Valentine’s Day and send a smile to your sweetheart! This Cricut Valentine project is perfect for sharing a smile or letting someone know you’re thinking of them. Customize the colors and printed designs to create a card that is uniquely you. Or create the card exactly as I’ve designed it here. It’s a lot of fun to combine the different layers to create this classic window card.. it looks all fancy schmancy and stuff. I hope you have fun with it!

Cute Valentine Card with Smiley Heart

You can customize this adorable love card by changing the cardstock color, the printed pattern, or even hiding the smiley face drawing if you want a classic window card. You can use this design for so many different occasions from Valentine’s Day to a “just because” love note or even a wedding invitation. Get creative and have fun with it!

Update: this project has been modified in Cricut Design Space. The printable hearts pattern I designed seems to be missing for some people. So, you can download the pattern here and use it in your project.

  1. Follow onscreen instructions to print, draw and cut card components.
  2. Layer front of card components and glue in place.
  3. Fold card along the center score line.
  4. Do not glue yet – place inside message square inside the card and close the card so you are looking at the front of the card. You should not be able to see the text through the cut out.
  5. Glue smiley heart cartoon to the message square, centering with the front of card cut out.
  6. Glue message card in place, inside the card.
  7. Assemble the envelope by folding along all score lines and gluing side flaps in place.
  8. Write a note. Add confetti hearts inside the card. Place in the envelope and seal.

Tip: Use glitter cardstock to create the confetti or card base for extra sparkle.

  1. Jen,
    Thank you so much! Such a cute card for Valentine’s Day. I missed seeing your design earlier, but will make these for my grandchildren for next year.
    Thank you for sharing your talent and designs.

  2. This smiley heart card is very cute, but when I print out the first sheet for print/cut the “Valentine and You make my heart smile” are not on the print out, that portion is just white paper, but the cutter appears to do a cutout for a portion of the type when you “cut” the piece.

    I was hoping to make this for my wife for tomorrow.

    • I’m so sorry I missed helping you out in time, did you get your Cricut to cut it all correctly?
      I’m not sure why the printer would not print out the design properly.
