May Arts Valentine's Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to May Arts Valentine's blog hop week. All the Ribbonista are participating in this hop to provide you with a week of inspirations.

For today, there are 5 blogs that you can visit (see links below), including mine. Since it's Valentine theme, I go with pink for my card.


For this card, I used May Arts solid reversible stripe ribbon (ME17) and sheer dots ribbon (JD22).

At first I was going to use just the stripe ribbon, because it is so pretty already on its own. On one side it's soft pink, dark pink, soft pink and on the other side it's dark pink, soft pink, dark pink. Love double sided ribbon. However, since the ribbon width is 3/4" I'd end up with pretty thick/big bow. Not in proportion with my card. So, I decided to layer it up with the sheer dot one.

I simply cut a slit on the the fold of the card and thread the ribbon through it.

The patterned paper is from Carta Bella, die cut & emboss with Spellbinders frame die. And I distress the edges a little bit with distress ink. Then, die cut and stamp the key (from Papretrey Ink - Key To My Heart set) and add it to the layer and finish by adding a banner stamped with sentiment.

Simple but still elegant & romantic. 

I hope you will join us and hopping along. As always May Arts is very generous with their giveaway. The lucky winner will get 4 spools of ribbon of their choice. Please check out what the other Ribbonista has created and leave some love along the way. Thank you for stopping by here and may your week starts off wonderfully!
