Christmas in July for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

what a better time to create a Christmas Card than in July. It is never too soon to get a start on holiday card making.

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects feature Christmas! I hope you are in a Holiday mood because there is a lot of Christmas fun headed your way. 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 Christmas Card uses the new Knit Together stamp/die bundle and the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set as well. This is a large single stamp with the Knit image. To get the best coverage of the stamp, use your Stamparatus to stamp Cherry Cobbler Ink on a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock.

There are 9 Knit Sweater Dies included in the set, each die is a single strip with its own unique design allowing you to create your own knitted patterns. If you are a stickler for things being straight, use grid paper to line up the dies and then used Post-It Tape to keep them in line. Slip the cardstock underneath then run it through your die-cutting machine. Tip: They will cut better if you run it through the die-cutting machine vertically.


Heartfelt Wishes is a new favorite from the Mini catalog – releasing to customers August 4th. The font, with the tails is so pretty and looks perfect with this card. There are also coordinating sentiments for the inside. I chose to add a few trees from the new Peaceful Cabin stamp set. The whole card just makes me think of a Ski lodge in full wintry wonder.

  1. I adore these dies – so clever – but not nearly as clever as your tips for getting them lined up. ♥

  2. The detail on the card does really look like a sweater. And not the ugly kind! The little image on the inside is such a special touch.

  3. This truly looks like a gorgeous cable knit sweater. Great card! Love the font in the sentiment!

  4. Love love love this card. You nailed the Christmas sweater look.

  5. Just gorgeous. Thank you for showing a cool cutting technique. This card makes me want to cuddle up with a cup of hot chocolate!

  6. Great card!!! I love that the die set comes with a couple of duplicate strips so you can run the card through once.

  7. I love this Fair Isle sweater inspired card, Lynn! You nailed the colors & thanks for showing us how to line up the dies!
