Make your own Valentine’s Day, wedding, anniversary or “Just because I love you” cards. Full pattern includes handmade templates. When printed on a color printer, they look handmade! All you have to do is print to card stock, crochet the motif and mail! Or, if you prefer, black and white templates are also provided for you to color in yourself. And, to complete the card, print one of the 20 included music themed sayings on the inside or leave blank and add your own Love Note.

Photographed samples were printed with a color printer.

The music themed card templates are included! Pre-made templates for printing on a color printer OR if you prefer, print the outlined templates on a black and white printer and color yourself with colored pencils. Love the “coloring book” effect? Outline with a sharpie first then color in!

Sayings include:
My heart beats for you.
We make beautiful music together.
Two hearts joined in the song of love.
May your hearts always beat as one.
…plus 16 more.
