20 Valentine Children Images
I am sharing a favorite collection of Valentine Children Images today. Each one has a unique look and theme, some are quite humorous, and they are all cute and fun. These are adorable and interesting old fashioned images for your Vintage Valentine Craft Projects! I hope you enjoy them!
This is one of my favorite all time photos. Don’t these girls look so sweet with their Angel wings and Heart sign. They must have big hearts indeed as the card has a Charity theme to it.
Valentine Children Images
Here we have a cute little girl and boy. They are all dressed up in their finest Winter clothing. They appear to be having a secret kiss!
Vintage Valentine Image! This pretty little Valentine Postcard shows two little Girls. I’m really not sure if they are Sisters or just Friends. They are wearing matching Pink Dresses with white lace collars and large pink hats! Both girls are also wearing what appears to be Ballet shoes, and they are holding a lovely Garland of Flowers.
There’s a lot going on in this one. We have an artist in a paint splattered green smock paints his adorable sweetheart’s portrait on this red and gold heart framed postcard. He is wearing gold shorts, shirt, and socks with a black kerchief tied at his neck and black shoes. His black hair is slicked into curls. He paints a cute blond girl in a green bonnet and gold dress within a red heart background with white and gold lace frame. Cupid aims his arrow from the upper left corner. The sentiment reads, “Just Picture This. Little Dan Cupid Isn’t so stupid. He knows that his dart Pictures you on my heart.”
Valentine Girl Images
This charming Vintage Postcard shows a dear little girl framed up with a Forget Me knot Heart. I love the realistic looking details of the tied String and the lace on this one.
Here we have a cute little girl dressed all in Pink and White. The sentiment says “with Loving Greetings”. This one appears to be the sister of the one below.
Here we have a darling little Valentine Girl all dressed in Blue and White. She’s surrounded by a Heart of Forget Me Knots. She has such a sweet face!
Cute, cute, cute!!! I just love the face on this one! This is actually an old Valentine’s Day card, but she looks so much like one of Santa’s Elves with her red and white fur trimmed cap that I thought you could use her for Christmas as well. I just love the humorous poem above. I’ve given you a couple of versions, including two without the Valentine greeting.
Here’s a pretty little piece of ephemera that includes a young child surrounded by a shamrock covered heart! I love the antique skeleton key hanging on the blue ribbon as well. This is truly a very nice graphic to use in your paper projects!
I’m including another extra Valentine Image today! These darling Stock Images are from a Vintage Card. Shown above is a little Girl in a Red Dress and Bonnet with a big Red Heart. Too cute!! I’ve included a second image of the girl by herself. Fun for your Handmade Valentine’s Day Cards!
This pretty little girl has a medieval type costume on. She’s framed up in Roses and the card reads “To My Love. Many Happy Days be Yours”. Lovely!
Valentine Boy Images
Here’s a cute little boy wearing overalls. He’s sitting in a red high chair and is writing a letter to his valentine. Nearby is a cute brown and white Puppy watching him write!
This is a charming Ellen Clapsaddle Valentine! This is a lovely Vintage Postcard from one of my favorite Vintage Postcard Artists, Ellen Clapsaddle! The card shows a sweet little Boy in a red suit, wrapping up some big hearts to give as gifts! I love the beautiful colors on this one!
Next we have a cute little Scottish boy. I just adore his plaid kilt and bright red heart and those socks are really something!
This little Spencerian inked boy seems to be getting ready to right a letter to his true love. The attached banner says “Yours Truly”.
Here is the latest addition to this collection. This one and the one below are both new this time. I’ve had this one for quite awhile, but I keep forgetting to post it each year, so today is the day! This was scanned from an Antique Children’s magazine. It’s a darling little colonial girl all dressed in red, black and white. She is holding a huge lacey paper heart!
And here is her brother. Also very cute and he has a matching giant heart as well. I love the lacey border around both of these too. So delicate and lovely!
I hope you enjoyed this curated collection of Valentine Children Images. You might also like our Best Free Valentines Day Images HERE!

Thanks so much for these lovely Valentines. I especially like the one with the beautiful little girl in the red coat and hat with the fur. I agree, they would be great used for Christmas, but I don’t see them without the Valentine’s Day greeting.

You’re welcome Vicky! You could just print her out and then fussy cut around her, I don’t think it would be too difficult. Then you could add her to some blank cardstock or some decorative paper. You could even raise her up a bit to give her some dimension if you wanted. Terri, from our Creative team, has some great tips for adding dimension here https://youtu.be/PgzsHlmb3NI I hope that helps!
Tana Randall-Wolfe says
Please be LGBT inclusive – the 2 girls could also be Valentines.
Thanks Tana, yes they certainly could:)
These are so sweet!Not sure why I cannot print?
Karen Watson says
Hi Lynne, just save them to your computer first and then you can print from there.
Tee Faris says
Superior images this week. I **heart** each one.
Awww, thanks so much Tee, so happy you enjoyed them!
I love these images. I have been wondering if it was ever discussed how they were printed – originally? I have noticed the stipple/little dots effect on many/most of the images used for shading. (You see it when they are enlarged.) It makes them so unique and charming. I really appreciate it, but it makes me wonder if that stipple method was used because they didn’t have the technology to screen the colors like they did in newspapers (or how they might do it today)? Or perhaps it was just a popular technique for the time. I’m just curious if this has ever been discussed. I am not a printer so I don’t know about these things nor do I know the history of printing. I would think they would have had to use some kind of color separation process, but it doesn’t appear like it.
Thanks so much Jeanie, I am not sure either but do agree that it certainly does make them look unique and charming 🙂

I don’t see how to get these into my files. I can only drag them to my screen and I’m sure this is wrong.
Karen Watson says
Hi Stacey, Just click on the image that you like… in order to enlarge it, and then right click on it by using the button on the right hand side of your mouse. And then a window will pop up and you can select to save it from that window. I hope that helps!
These little lovelies are so adorable! I love seeing the outfits they wear.
They are all too cute! Thanks so much for sharing these with us!
Thanks Irene, I think they are adorable too 🙂
