Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! Trees are such a central image in card making (Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, trees are gorgeous), so we have designed projects with trees to share with you today. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

To make an “other than Christmas” card, but with Trees, I have moved to the upcoming Mini Catalog.  This catalog and the Bundle I am using will be available to you on January 4, 2024.  I love giving you a sneak peek at new products.


Stampin' Up!, Delicate Forest, One Horse Open Sleigh, Blooming pearls, lost lagoon, jackie beers



This wonderful Die Cut focal area is from a new Bundle in the upcoming January – April 2024 Mini Catalog.  It is the Delicate Forest Bundle.  The die cut is one solid piece that has cut outs, but also little partially cut pieces that stand up a little.  When I received my preorder and was looking at this die , I was amazed at how pretty it is.  Now I am in love with it.  To add to the “tree” theme, I went with a natural paper in Crumb Cake for this die cut.

The ,short but sweet, sentiment I used is also included in the stamp set that is part of the Bundle.  These simple words are small enough that I was able to tuck the strip behind the die cut.  I did not really want it to stand out very much.  It is stamped with Early Espresso Ink to bring out the darkest of the trees in the background.  And it is both good and bad that the only stamping on this card is the sentiment!


The calm and beautiful scene behind the die cut is the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper.  This is one that is an Online Exclusive and is still available.  I love the snow and woodsy images these papers have.  So I believe they are great for other than Christmas.

To continue on with the thought of “trees”, I added a green to the papers.  It is a sort of green.  I chose Lost Lagoon as the card base.  It is in the background of the DSP  along with Pool Party.   And with all of the business of the die cut and the paper, it did not require much of an embellishment.  But if you know me, I had to add some bling.  There is a single Blooming Pearl in the green shade at the base of the little tree.
