How about some good old fashioned traditional JOY!? I think we all need that right now! Today, I’m sharing two cards with the new Concord & 9th Iconic Christmas Turnabout stamp set!
The turnabouts make beautiful fast backdrops for cards and tags. You simply ink up, stamp, quarter turn your cardstock and switch ink colors, then repeat. You can add four different colors. Here I’ve showcased Concord & 9th colors: Parsley, Clover, Wheat and Cranberry for a traditional Christmas. I find the squares easiest to work with in my MISTI with the turnabout stamps. I simply trim to preferred size after stamping.
After stamping my background, I added JOY from the 2020 Holiday Joy Bundle and a pretty poinsettia created with Fresh Cut Floral Dies – edition 4.
Square cards require extra postage, so keep that in mind, but I think it’s worth it sometimes for a special greeting. I may end up framing this one and just forego the extra postage. LOL
My second card also features the Iconic Christmas Turnabout, but this time I used only a white ink for a subtle backdrop for the coordinating diecut baubles from Iconic Christmas Dies.
MERRY • MERRY Christmas! It’s not too early to start creating, and your December self will be so happy you crafted early!
Thanks for stopping by. More to share soon!
