We Are Family – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “We are Family.” As you might guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by family – we have a wide variety of projects today! 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.

My card for today’s blog hop features the Hung with Care Host Set. Don’t stockings hung on the mantle remind you of family? It’s one of my favorite ways to decorate for Christmas! There’s just something about the anticipation of Christmas with your dearest loved ones that stockings represent.

I’ve paired the Hung with Care stamp set with the All is Bright Designer Series Paper, the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (for the mantle), and a few gold elements to tie it all together (washi tape, pearls, and embossing powder). Here’s a closer look at the gold embossed sentiment:

  1. Such a brilliant way to approach the family theme, Julie! I love this card – and I love the metallic pearls that hold each stocking to the mantel. So happy you hopped with us today! <3
