May Arts Ribbon Christmas Card Hop

 Ribbon just makes Christmas a happier prettier time.  We use it to tie up our presents, hang up our ornaments and to deck out our houses.  With all the amazing Christmas ribbon out there you can also add them to your holiday cards.
Today the May Arts Ribbonistas are on a Christmas hop showcasing some great ideas for making awesome holiday cards.  I mean May Arts Ribbon has THE BEST ribbon.
 For my card I made a simple wreath by wrapping Burlap String
 in a circle and adhering it to my card base with a circle of glue.  To bring in that holiday feel I added a cute red Grosgrain Ivory Striped Ribbon bow.  Add a saying and a little details and you got a lovely rustic holiday card.  This card was so easy to make that you could totally make a bunch for all your loved ones this season.
 There's one more lovely ribbonista on the hop today and that is Karen Hanson.
 If you missed the list head on over to the May Arts Ribbon blog and get inspired.  The ribbon lady is giving away two prices of two spools each of our choice from the Christmas selection.
