Greatest Dot-to-Dot Valentine's Day PuzzleTools I used:

  • Watercolor Pencils
  • Water brush
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided Tape
  • Glue
  • Paper Cutter

Paper dimensions:

  • Cut 8½” x 11″ sheet of heavy white cardstock down to 6½” x 10″. Score cardstock in half to make card 5″ x 6½”.
  • Cut pattern cardstock for front of card (top half) 5” x 6½”.


Print out the two pdf clip art files from above. Color in the images except the large heart. Cut out everything.

Additional tricks I use to get dimension.

  • I use two or three water color pencils in different shades of the same color. I use the darkest color near the lines and the lightest in the middle of the image.
  • I drag the waterbrush from the darkest color to the lightest color, keeping the brush damp, not soaked.
  • I color past the images so when I cut them out they don’t have a white edge.
  • I use Tim Holtz Distress inks on the edge of the cardstock and puzzle.
  • I put Ranger Glossy Accents on the small heart after I colored it. It gives it a shine and adds dimension.
