Christmas in July World Map


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. What fun! 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.



This has been a challenging year, to say the least! I reached for the World Map dies (coordinates with the Beautiful World stamp set) and computer generated the "May there be peace on earth" sentiment. The Tin Tile embossing folder added interest to this CAS card.


So happy with how this card turned out. I must share how I made the ornament cap. do you recognize the die? It's the inkwell die!


It's the little one on the upper right. I cut it out, then decided it was a bit too tall. I ran it through again, shaving off a bit of the bottom. Then I used my score board to make a few vertical lines. Cut a little opening in the top for the gold ribbon. Anyone else save scraps of pretty ribbon? This one was in my stash.


Here's a better photo of the gorgeous gold world map die against the night of navy cardstock. Love the Lovely Labels pick a punch! I was going to add a gold layer to the label, but decided I wanted the globe to take center stage.

Dies: World Map, Stitched Rectangles
Punch: Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
Embossing Folder: Tin Tile

  3. Wow! Wow! Beautiful. The visual effect is simple, but this great card is anything but. I absolutely love every little detail from the embossing on the background panel to the intricate gold around, on and above the globe to the perfectly framed sentiment. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous project.
