May Arts + Simple Stories + Xyron = A Match Made in Heaven

Hello and welcome to the blog hop with the May Arts Ribbonistas!

We swapped with Xyron and Simple Stories for a super fun trio! 

Simple Stories let us choose a collection kit so I chose the Story of Us. I loved the black white and gold and thought some pink and tiffany blue ribbon would soften it up! 

There are actually 4 kinds of May Arts Ribbon on this card. I got this close up so that you could see the shimmer ribbon on the left. It's beautiful! Of course the chevron is a favorite of mine and the silk ribbon is brand new! 

The scalloped tab was an afterthought and I am so glad I slipped it behind the ribbon! 

This wired ribbon is super fun, but to be honest - I had NO idea how to adhere it! So I grabbed my Xyron/Teresa Collins Stapler and stapled it down. Totally cheating. Love it! 

Now check out what my DT mates have created!

Love the wired ribbon - different and fun. Great card. Also a good way to use up scraps that always seem to be laying around.
thanks for sharing.

Good call on the ribbon! Also glad to see I'm not the only one who gets stumped from time to time on how to adhere embellishments or ribbons! I think you did a wonderful job and I'm loving that ribbon!

Very interesting card. Love your ribbons. I never would have guessed that the circular element was ribbon. Thanks for sharing some super ideas with us.
