This aquatic-theme Valentine’s Day card is a perfect holiday sentiment for your sweetie. Cut out our whale pattern from two different colors of chart paper, using a crafts knife to partially cut the flipper. You can draw white circles onto teal paper with a white marking pen. At the top of your card, add a piece of white paper cut to resemble waves. Embellish the card with punched hearts, fish, and a typed or printed message.
Print the template onto plain paper and cut out. On a piece of chart paper, draw and cut out a 5-1/2×12-inch rectangle. Fold accordion-style along the short side (as indicated by the dotted lines). You should have six sections. Place the template on the folded paper with the open side of the heart over the top fold. Trace heart and cut out. On contrasting paper, trace a heart that’s slightly larger all around. Glue to the back of the center heart on your accordion.
