Free as a Bird for Springtime InKing Royalty Blog Hop


Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Springtime, so I hope you are ready for gorgeous Spring colors, flowers and butterflies – and maybe some sweet baby animals. 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.

My card for today was inspired by the beautiful blossoms of my flowering tree.








While not an exact match, they remind me of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card:













I created a Center Step Card today using a tutorial by France Martin. Here’s the link to her tutorial Center Step Tutorial by France Martin

Here are the details.

  • The card base is Calypso Coral and measures 4 1/2 X 11 in.
  • The center panel measures 2 1/8 X 4 3/8 in. 
  • The 2 side panels measure 7/8 X 4 3/8 in.
  • I used the middle sized circle in the Stitched Framelits Dies along with a Calypso Coral circle cut from the Layering Circles Framelits.
  • The strip at the bottom measures 7/8 by 4 3/8 in.
  • I used the Well Written Framelets Dies to create the sentiment.
  • A Bird Ballad Trinket and an Old Olive ribbon bow finish off the card.

I put a 4 1/8 x 4 3/8 in. piece of DSP on the back so I’d have a place to jot a note and sign the card.  

I hope you like my card and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Hugs, Robin
