How to Draw a Valentine’s Card
- Draw the outlines of the card.
With the help of several straight lines draw a rectangle. The vertical and horizontal lines of the valentine should be parallel to each other.
- Depict one side of the heart.
Draw a smooth rounded line of the same shape as in the example. Below you will see more detailed instruction for drawing a heart.
- Add the second side of the heart.
On the other side, draw a symmetrical line to make the closed-loop. To check the symmetry of the heart, try looking at it through a mirror.
- Sketch out the bow.
This part should be located exactly under the heart. This part should also be symmetrical. You can draw the left side first, then the right.
- Depict the ends of the ribbon at the bottom.
First of all, draw the bottom part of the heart-ball as in my example. Then using long smooth lines draw the edges of the bow.
- Add the inscription
Draw letters inside the heart. I’m just showing you an example of text that you can replace with any other inscription.
- Write the bottom text.
When you write the text, keep in mind that the lines should be straight and the letters should be approximately the same size.
- Color the Valentine’s card.
At this stage, you will need pink or red. But this is just my example. You can use any other colors and color combinations.
Especially for your convenience, I have prepared in advance a short version of the lesson in the form of a PDF file. Download the file and use it any time you want to repeat this lesson.
