Color Me America


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.

Forth of July is a time to CELEBRATE!  It reminds of hot dogs, fireworks, and family gatherings.  These might not be the real thing but wouldn't these be great hanging around about the time July 4th comes around?

Die Cutting:

Assemble the Card:

  • Take the Basic White Cardstock base,  Score at 4 1/4 and burnish with a bone folder
  • adhere the Soft Suede embossed cardstock to the front of the Basic White Cardstock
  • Start layering the leaves to the top of the card, over lapping, make sure the leaves have space to add flowers underneath
  • adhere each flower underneath the leaves.  Use dimensionals to pop a few of the flowers.
  • Using the Charming Sentiments, stamp on Basic White cardstock, dies but using the coordinating die set Sentiment Silhouettes. pop up sentiment using dimensionals.
I had a lot of fun making this card.  I hope this will inspire you to use this set and come up with some amazing creations!!
