Vacation – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around VACATION. While many are reminiscing about their summer vacations, others are looking forward to the long weekend just around the corner. 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 project for today features the Tropical Chic stamp set! And if I could give vacation a card, it would be this one! As in, “Vacation, you are the greatest!” Can I get an amen?

Here’s another angle to showcase the gold embossing:

I don’t know about you, but I love a good tropical vacation! Put me by the pool with some good books in tropical weather and I’m in heaven!

  1. Julie, Julie, Julie….your cards always wow me!! This one is no exception!! I’m completely loving this color combination with its pop of gold!!!

  2. Lets see what does this card bring to mind, ummm Pina Coladas, Margaritas, zip lining, tropical paradise, fun in the sun. Where do I sign up? Beautifully done Jules.

  3. Julie. I’m with ya on the tropical vacation. The gold embossing over top is such a cool add. Really makes the card stand out. Love it.

  4. What a nice and colorful vacation card! I agree on the tropical and a book! The addition of the gold embossing is a great extra touch to finish with.

  5. I love this, Julie! Such a creative spin on the theme – to actually give the card to vacation. I love everything about it! ♥
