May Arts:: A Scrapbook Adhesive Christmas



I don't think there is any object out there that doesn't pair well or work well with May Arts Ribbon. I'm pretty particular when it comes to adhesives I use, especially when working with ribbon on cards, and I love how Scrapbook Adhesives products adhere the ribbon. May Arts has teamed up with Scrapbook Adhesives this week for a fun blog hop, it is the second day of inspiration. Complete details can be found on the May Arts Blog.


My first card features some luscious satin ribbon in the traditional Christmas Colors. I laid a line Scrapbook Adhesives' Crafty Power Tape on my card base and then made some long ribbon tabs with May Arts' 1.5" Satin Grosgrain Edged Ribbon in Olive (HN16) and Burgundy (HN25). Then I looped and layered a length of the 1" Sheer Gold Ribbon (C30) on top, also adhering that with the Power Tape. I finished the card with a die cut word (Lil' Inkers Designs Joy Word Die) adhered with E-Z Dots onto a white panel. The panel itself was affixed to the card with Scrapbook Adhesives' foam squares.


My second card is sleek and contemporary, and so easy to put together! I die cut the word from a white card base and stamped the sentiment (from Lil' Inker Designs Jolly & Joyful Sentiments). Then I adhered a 4.25" length of the amazing May Arts 1.5" Silver Metallic Ribbon (464-15-31) to a panel with Scrapbook Adhesives' Crafty Power Tape and then affixed the panel with the Tape on the underside of the card front.


Please stop by the other designer's blogs today, and check out the May Arts Blog through the rest of the week to for more inspiration. In case you missed it, here was yesterday's line up:

Using the white card stock shows off your gorgeous ribbon and yes I agree you need the right adhesive with ribbon. Both cards are just beautiful.

Goregous colors of ribbon. Love it. I also like the peek-a-boo of ribbon behind your cut out- very nice effect.
