InKing Royalty Blog Hop: Christmas!


Welcome to InKing Royalty's November Blog Hop! During this year's blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month's projects celebrate Christmas, which - believe it or not - is just around the corner. Please prepare yourself for lots of beautiful projects that share the joy of this holiday. 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. 

I created a serene, peaceful card from the inside looking out. Very 2020. It is the best time of the year, connecting with family and friends.

This card was a challenge to photograph! Don't tell Brian, but there's a sprinkle of hoarded Dazzling Diamonds on the die cut trees. I guess I won't be sending this card to him, lol! Just had to do it, though. It's so pretty irl (in real life).

Stamps: SU Grace's Garden (mirror imaged bird), SU A Merry Hello (sentiment)
Dies: SU Best Plaid, SU Majestic Mountain, 
Misc: SU Evergreen Forest ef
