So in Love – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! Today’s So In Love Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that share ideas for Valentine’s Day or new products we love. We are excited to share what we’ve made and hope you’ll find great inspiration from our talented team members in this hop. After you read my post, I Β hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Today’s card is a flirty card for Valentine’s Day that showcases our beautiful Watermelon Wonder color and the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Die. The heart silhouette in Basic Black really pops against Watermelon Wonder and isn’t that Watermelon Wonder ribbon delicious?? I created an easy “bow” using a Candy Dot Brad Base to not only hold the ribbon together in a bow shape, but to attach it to the front of the card. To prevent the ends from fraying (because I want this card to last a lifetime – haha!), I ran them quickly through a flame from a lighter (lit matches work too!). Did you know our pearls and rhinestones fit on our Candy Dot Brad Bases? I think the pearl adds a sweet touch. Can’t wait to give this card to my hubby :).

  1. Beautiful card, Julie! This heart is gorgeous cropped in black and really pops against the bright background. Lovely use of this ribbon! Thanks for hopping with us today – glad you did.

  2. love the Black and Watermelon combo, and you knocked it out of the park with that Watermelon Ribbon bow!

  3. Oh, my! This is stunning! I never once thought of getting the Watermelon Wonder ribbon. It's being added to my wish list now!

  4. Nice job! I would have never considered putting Watermelon Wonder with black but it looks awesome. I also LOVE that ribbon. I could just wrap up in it! πŸ™‚

  5. Ok, So, the color combination is to die for!!! I am struck with so much from this card…love, flirty, and elegance! Just watch out when you give it to your hubby (HEEHEEEHEEEHEEE!!!!) In all seriousness, your card is beautiful and the pearl in the candy dot bard brings it all together. What a fabulous finishing touch.
