InKing Royalty Blog Hop- Red, White & Blue

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.

I prepared a baseball card with the soon-to be retiring “Hey Sports Fan Suite”. The DSP and dies are 50% off; & the Resin Stars are 30%. Retiring items are only available until 6/30 or while supplies last. I’m encouraging my St. Louis stamping friends to consider it, since almost everyone I know has at least one St. Louis (baseball) Cardinals fan in their circle of family & friends. And nothing says America louder than baseball and hotdogs and ice-cream. Anyway…

Let’s get to the card! Since the DSP is double sided, I cut a piece of 5.25′ X 4″ piece. Next I cut that 5.25′ side to at 3″; this gives two pieces, measuring 3″ x 4″ & 2.25″ X 4″. I flipped one piece over for the contrasting design and adhered to my Night of Navy base. I also cut a little row of tickets in Night of Navy from the Sports Event Dies & adhered between the two pieces of DSP. This creates a border between the two papers & gives a finished look.
HINT: When placing your two pieces, ensure alignment at edges; you can use the die cut tickets to hide any unevenness where the two pieces meet.

I stamped the ticket outline in Real Red on Very Vanilla, then die cut it. Next, I stamped the “Horray” & “Happy Birthday” on the die cut ticket. More diecutting-a flag in Real Red, and the #1 circle and flag tails in Very Vanilla.

For finishing touches my card uses five (5) Resign Stars and Fan Bakers twine. The inside is finished with a row of tiny tickets in Real Red on a Very Vanilla base.

Red, white and blue colors schemes are perfect for masculine cards. I often use earth tones for masculine cards so it’s super fun creating with the bright colors.
