May Arts Ribbonistas Christmas Card Hop

Welcome, to my post for the May Arts Ribbonistas Christmas Card Hop! Can you believe we are already over half way through October?  It's time to get busy making those Christmas Cards, so you will have time to get them out.  My card is so easy to make, because of the self-adhesive May Arts Velvet Ric-Rac.  I cut my card panel, stamped the sentiment, and then just added rows of the velvet.  I finished it off with some beautiful metallic ribbons. Easy, peasy!

Be sure to check out the rest of the inspiration - and leave those comments! Our lovely Ribbon Lady will be giving  2 prizes of 2 spools each (one each day) from our Christmas Section. Have fun hoppping!

 I am thrilled to be representing Core'dinations today!  And although I am not ready for winter, I had so much fun designing this cheerful snowman.  And that gourgeous, glittery background was made using a Dreamweaver stencil, as well as some of their embossing paste.  It made a perfect wintery backdrop for the precious Stampendous snowman.The Vintage and Whitewash collections from Core'dinations already have a "snowy" appearance to them, so I thought they were the perfect choice.
