May 2020 InKing Royalty Blog Hop Header, Sunshine

It’s time for the 05-2020 IRBH! This month’s theme is Sunshine. Sending a personal handmade card is one way to spread a little sunshine, especially in these days of social distancing and Zoom fatigue. And making cards is an excellent way to bring yourself some sunshine while staying at home. After reading my post, be sure to check out all the others on the hop. This is a very talented group of stampers, and you don’t want to miss a thing!

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Terracotta Tile card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Pumpkin Pie CS layer cut to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
  • Crushed Curry CS layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • a strip of each color CS (Mango Melody, Grapefruit Grove, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Pineapple Punch, and Bumble Bee) cut to 1″ x 5″, then cut diagonally from corner to corner to create “rays”
  • some of the rays cut down to skinnier rays
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base
  • *sentiment circle cut in half (see below)

Stamped with the Under My Umbrella stamp set:

  • sentiment in Basic Gray ink onto a scrap of Pineapple Punch CS

Cut using the Layering Circles Dies:

  • sentiment
  • *then cut it in half with the Paper Trimmer (see above)

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Pumpkin Pie CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • CS strip “rays” glued side by side onto the Crushed Curry CS layer, beginning in the middle and working down both sides
  • sentiment glued over the rays along the bottom of the layer
  • Crushed Curry CS glued onto the Pumpkin Pie CS layer
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
