Winter is a busy time in our household – two November birthdays, Christmas, a January and a February birthday – so the New Year is definitely time for making Thank You cards! I needed to come up with a couple of designs that I could mass-produce – enter the Concord and 9th turnabout! Have you ever used them? They’re so good for making quick card backgrounds! I honestly couldn’t figure them out at first, but after taking part in the C9 Summer Camp last year, it finally clicked!
For this card, I used the Scattered Dots turnabout. If you’re not sure how they work, check out the Concord and 9th website for video tutorials! I pre-cut about 10 pieces of white card to A2 size. I placed my turnabout jig in my MISTI, then positioned a piece of cardstock in the centre of the jig, held into place with temporary adhesive.
I used C9 ink cubes for my project (I love their colour palette). I started by inking up the stamp in Ballet Slipper, stamped it twice to get good coverage, then removed my card and added the second piece. I stamped this one, then moved on to the third… and so on, until all 10 pieces had been stamped with Ballet Slipper. Then, I went back to my first card, rotated the jog to position 2, and stamped in Sea Glass. I repeated the process for all 10 cards again. Then, I rotated the jig to position 3, stamped in Stardust, and then used Dove for position 4 (each time, doing the same for all 10 pieces of card so there was no need to clean the stamp every time – this saved soooo much time!).
Next, I used one of the dies from the Large Fishtail Banner Dies set from Pink and Main (https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=1047151&u=2971938&m=73505&urllink=&afftrack=) to cut out a banner from Sea Glass cardstock. I then heat embossed in white the Thank You sentiment, from Concord and 9th’s Buds & Blossoms stamp set. Finally, I stamped out several small hearts in Versamark ink from the same set, which I then heat embossed in gold, fussy cut, and added to the banner with foam tape.
I glued the banner to the front of the card with liquid glue, then mounted the finished panel onto a white top-folding card base. These were to easy to make but I love how they turned out – I even made a few backgrounds in different colour combinations, as the C9 colours work so well together!
Thanks for tuning in and see you again soon! 🙂
