May Arts:: Christmas Card Hop



The May Arts Ribbonistas have joined together for a Christmas Card Blog Hop, featuring May Arts Ribbon, of course!

If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from Jenifer's Blog, and if you want to start at the beginning or to get more details, please visit the May Arts Blog.

My card today features my most favorite of all May Arts Ribbon, the silk! I started by embossing a quilt pattern onto a card base then stamped the sentiment. I cut out a tag from some patterned paper and then adhered the tag with 1.25" May Arts Silk Ribbon in Olive (SK16). Before tying the knot, I slipped in a length of the 1/2" Solid Wrinkle Ribbon in Red (EA14), in which I tied a nice bow on top of the knotted green silk. Since both these ribbons are lightweight and so easy to manipulate into flat bows, the card hardly has any bulk and will mail with regular postage.

A simple card, but perfect for mailing and that ribbon sure packs a punch! Now, there are prizes for commenting on any stop along the way... you could with three spools of May Arts Ribbon from their Christmas Category!

I'm going to send you along to Lalo's blog now, but remember,  you can find the complete list of participating blogs over at May Arts

It's good that this ribbon will lay flat when you are mailing the card. That is always something I worry about - will the card go through the mail without being destroyed. It's a very pretty card. Love Rudolph's picture.

BEAUTIFUL card!!!
LOVE your GORGEOUS ribbons and ELEGANT design - I confess that I was thinking of adding red bling to the kangaroos on some Aussie themed cards that I'm making and now I know they will be fabulous with the addition of some ribbon too, I'm not so good with perfect bows, so knots will definitely be the go :)
THANK YOU for sharing your crafty Christmas inspiration!!!
