April Showers and May Flowers for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 InKing Royalty Blog Hop - April

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop!

Today we are celebrating April Showers — not only is this the season for Baby Showers and Wedding Showers, but May flowers are just around the corner, so you’re certain to see a great variety of projects along the hop.

You may have started the Blog Hop here or may have hopped over from Pam Morris at Tap Tap Stamp. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next. If you get off track at any point during the blog hop, there’s a complete list of participants at the end of this post.

For my project today, I decided to think outside the A4 box and go around in a circle!

To make this circle card, I cut two circles in Wild Wasabi using the largest Circle Framelit. I went one size down to create the Whisper White circle for the front of the card, and two sizes down to create the Whisper White circle for the inside the card (for my written sentiment).

After I glued my Whisper White card to the Wild Wasabi circle that would be the back of my card, I placed it on my Simply Scored tool and scored it all the way across at 1 inch. I then used my Liquid Multipurpose Glue above the score line and adhered the front and back Wild Wasabi circles together.

This makes an easel back which allows the card to be opened without creasing the front.

I then embossed the larger Whisper White circle using the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and adhered it to the front of my card.

Next, I stamped all my flowers using the Flower Patch stamp set and cut out the flowers with the corresponding Flower Fair Framelits. I embellished each flower center with a button from the Brights collection before adhering them along the left side of the card.

I cut the “Hello” sentiment from the Hello You Thinlits and adhered it across the card.

I have to admit, it was a little tough getting my brain to adjust to this new shape. But, now that I’ve finished one circle card, I can easily see myself creating more. This would also be super cute using a scalloped circle shape.

I hope you liked my celebration of April showers and May flowers, and thank you for stopping by today!

I also hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Becky Volpp at Ink Blossom with Becky. You certainly won’t want to miss any of these projects.

Have fun hopping!
