Christmas Cards with May Arts Ribbon~

It is officially the Holiday Crafting season!
The Ribbon Resource, the May Arts Ribbon Retail Store is here to help and inspire you to create some great Christmas Crafts this season. We will be having a new blog hop every Friday until Christmas! With each blog hop comes your chance to win too!
Head over to the Ribbon Resource blog for your chance to win 2 spools of holiday ribbon.

So this first week of Christmas Crafting brings you Christmas Cards.
Something that you would need to create a little ahead of time so that you have the time to create, write and mail them!

I have 3 cards to share, all with easy ways to incorporate beautiful ribbon.

This first card is not done with your traditional holiday colours, but I think it's really striking.
I used the 1.5" Black Striped Grosgrain and tied a simple bow. Then I added the snowflake and circle stickers and the glitter "Noel" sticker.

These next 2 cards are a simple variation using the same stamped image from Darcie's Winter Woodland stamp set. Again I am using non traditional holiday colours. On the first card I created a simple layered border topped with the pretty 1/4" Teal Chevron Ribbon.
The second card features 1/4" Pink Chevron Ribbon and I added Pink Burlap String to the button.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the Ribbon Resource blog to see what some of the other Ribbonistas have come up for for your Christmas Card Crafting!
