Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! As we prepare for the July 4 holiday ahead, we are sharing projects that celebrate the Red, White & Blue. Not all projects will be patriotic, but you are certain to be inspired by all of them. 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 hairstylist loves displaying cards I’ve made for her in her salon loft. Her birthday is next month, so I made her a red, white, and blue birthday card. She’ll keep it on display until my August hair appointment..
Without further ado, here’s my card:
Once again, I used the Sketch Saturday challenge for the layout of this card. I posted a Father’s Day card using this layout on Monday and you can find that card here. This red, white, and blue version came together very quickly since I already had the measurements figured out.
Here’s the challenge banner from Sketch Saturday:
- The Real Red base measures 5-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 to create a tent fold card.
- I ran a piece of white cardstock through my cut and emboss machine using the brick 3D embossing folder. Then, I trimmed it to 4-18 by 5-3/8 inches.
- The Sun Prints blue and white piece of DSP (designer series paper) used for the first layer measures 3-1/2 by 3-3/8 inches. I chose this pattern because I thought it kind of looked like fireworks. Then, I trimmed a piece of this DSP to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
- Next, I trimmed the red cardstock to 2-3/4 by 3-3/8 inches after I ran it through the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder.
- The Starry Sky speckled DSP measures 2-1/2 by 3-1/8 inches. Next, punched a 1-inch circle from this DSP to use for the envelope seal..
- This fun sentiment on the front comes from the Hello Ladybug stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock using Starry Sky ink. Then I cropped the sentiment and the red cardstock using the stylish shapes die set. After adhering the two squares using multipurpose liquid glue, I put dimensionals under the red square.
- I used the same die set to crop the red banner sticking out from the left side of the card.
- The inside sentiment, “Best Wishes and Happy Thoughts”, comes from the Nature’s Prints stamp set. I stamped it using Starry Sky on white cardstock.
- Next, I added red dots on the left side of the card and on all four corners of the sentiment panel.
- Finally, I tied a bunny-ears bow using the Starry Sky metallic woven ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot.
