A Year of Celebrations Blog Hop: Christmas in July

InKing Royalty Christmas in July Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Christmas in July. Demonstrators have been able to order new products from the upcoming August-December Mini Catalog, so prepare yourself for a gorgeous mix of new products, products available in the Annual Catalog and returning favorites. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Plaid for Christmas

Today I’m sharing a pretty, plaid card that you can make by the dozens and you don’t have to start in July to be done for Christmas. The Best Plaid Builder Dies make this simple to do.

I started by cutting Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler cardstock with the dies and dotted the back of each piece with glue. They are stuck to a base of Whisper White cardstock.

Seasons Greetings for Christmas

The sentiment came from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set. I stamped it on Vellum Cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed with Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Pam Morris at Tap Tap Stamp. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

    I smiled when I opened this post earlier today. I love the colors you chose that give a retro/country look to the card, and the vellum band is very pretty. This is an example of earthy and fancy all in one!
