Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate the 4th of July – the projects are inspirational, patriotic and filled with reds, whites and blues. 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.
Who doesn’t enjoy a 4th of July celebration?! I have a friend who really loves the 4th because his birthday is on the same day as our country’s. He is a no fuss kind of guy, so I have made a quick and easy card for him. Here’s my card:
I chose the new stamp set, Happiest of Birthdays to take center stage on my card. The bold font hops right off of the card front!
My friend is going to like the color combo of Misty Moonlight, Whisper White and Real Red – traditional colors for this special holiday.
The Real Red background was created with the Buffalo Check background stamp. I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time getting the image of this stamp straight, even with the Stamparatus. Nothing looks worse than a crooked plaid! I also wanted the dark squares of the image around the outside. I got around it by inserting a 6 x 6 in. piece of Whisper White in the Stamparatus. I stamped the image and then trimmed to get the part of the image I wanted.
I popped up my sentiment with Dimensionals and added a couple of Star Designer Elements and that’s it! I think my friend will like his card and I hope you do too!
