May Arts:: Coredinations

All this week, May Arts has teamed up with Core'dinations for one fabulous blog hop! There is fun, inspiration and prizes!

I chose to work with the fabulous Chalk Core A2 Cards. I love the fact that these cards have a black base, but a white core. And...the inside of the card is white so it is perfect for a handwritten greeting. The above card features a wood grain and a few snippets of May Arts ribbon in the form of tabs along with a sticker greeting. Perfect for a guy! (Satin Grosgrain Edge in light green HN-18, and Twill Strips in Black 382-34-10).

This next card features some white embossed dots, along with a Core'dinations tag with a sticker greeting, some bling and a gorgeous bow from May Arts Sheer Silk Ribbon in Silver (C31).

And lastly, a clean and simple engagement, wedding or anniversary card featuring the classic Tiffany Blue (SK94)! I love silk ribbon and so happy that May Arts carries this color in their silk line.

Here's the hop order, and stop by the May Arts Blog for hop details and prize information!!







  1. I love the use of black. It really makes the colors pop.

  2. I love the ribbon on the last card. It is so cool and crisp.
    The black/white core'dinations is another line I've missed out on but I'll be fixing that soon.
