May Arts / Ribbon Resource Holiday Card Hop

Welcome to the Ribbon Resource Holiday Card Hop! You still have a little bit of time to get those cards made and in the mail, so we've got some inspiration for you.  As always, there is a wonderful ribbon prize for one lucky commenter - 2 5-yard rolls of Christmas ribbon. So hop along, enjoy the projects and leave comments.
For my card, I made a Fold-back Pop Out Card, which was new to me (and rather fun). It was easy to embellish  with lovely ribbons.

Ribbons Used:


This month, I have played with the Crafter's Companion Create-A-Card dies to show you just how versatile these dies can be.  Check back throughout the month to see other creative ways I've used this one die.  For this card, I used the cut as a stencil to spray my mist, then glued down an additional cut over it.  I added a center strip of ribbons and black cardstock, and finally used the motif from the center of the die to add a sentiment.

Crafter’s Companion:
Textures Words of Wonder Stamp Set
May Arts Ribbon: ¾” Twill/Chevron Stripes (382-34-94)
ColourArte: Radiant Rain – Teal Zircon, Apple Blossom

Let it Snow

I'm back for another wintery card to celebrate the 30 Days of Christmas Cards!  This was a clean a simple card to make. I stamped the Winter Wonderland with the sky inked blue, and the trees inked green. I inked over the entire image with Versamark and heat embossed with a pearly powder.  I die cut the Let it Snow Sentiment and had a quick, but lovely card.

We have a few more days of Christmas Cards left, so keep with us for inspiration for your holiday cards.
