May Arts and CardMaker Blog Hop- Feminine Valentine Card

January 23rd, 2013 | Made with Paper, Seasonal


Have you made any Valentine cards yet?  I’m just getting started. I wanted to share a card with you today that would be great for a Mom, sister, or a close friend. This card is versatile enough that if you’ve already completed your V-Day cards you could hang onto the idea for Mother’s Day, or a birthday by simply changing the inside sentiment.  Thanks for hopping all the way to the end of the list, my card is sure not to disappoint! PLUS just for commenting on this post (or any along the way) you have a chance to win 4 spools of May Arts ribbon -your choice! Happy Hopping!


I love this silk ribbon from May Arts (I just can’t stop touching it). To create the smooth looking braid I tied the three stands together in a knot, then folded each color in half length-wise.While braiding be sure the outer edge of the fold is in the centre of the braid.  When your braid is the desired length, tie it off with the ivory twisted burlap string. Fold the knotted end over the edge of your paper and sew. Cut the knot off the back side.  For an additional feminine element add a strip of white 5/8″ crochet ribbon.





Supplies Used:

368-58-01 White Crochet, 363-09 ivory twisted burlap string, 1.25″ silk in white, rose, and burgundy,  Stampin’Up cardstock, My Minds Eye- pattern paper, brads, word stickers, Xyron adhesive, sewing machine.

Thanks for stopping in today! Please continue along, and leave some love  for your chance to win 4 spools of May Arts ribbon.
