Fuzzy Valentine

Look at this fun Valentine card!


I’ll show you how I did it. I used Helmar Premium Craft Glue, DCWV Fabric Paper, and May Arts ribbon in 3/8” chenille center dot , ¼” solid/iridescent ribbon, and 3/8” double faced satin.



First I cut a piece of fabric paper & laid out my strips of ribbon.



I used my Helmar Premium Craft Glue to adhere the ribbon.



I turned it over to trim off the excess



Now you need to repeat this process with your ribbon in the opposite direction. Here you can see that with 1” strips already cut.



Next you’ll line up the ribbons as close as possible to create your zigzag.



This Fabric paper is self-adhesive, so I pulled the backing of to attach it to pink cardstock & trimmed to my desired size. I tied a satin bow around the focal panel, which was then attached to a white card base with Helmar Premium Craft Glue. I stamped a sweet sentiment from Lawn Fawn stamps to finish the card.



Isn’t the texture great?

Thank you to Helmar for your wonderful adhesive products! And thank you for your time! I hope you’ve been inspired!
