(For my Concord & 9th Feature Saturday post, click here)
Hello friends! Welcome to my first post as a new member of the design team for the Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge! This month, the theme is Sparkle and Shine. Concord & 9th has so many possibilities, especially with the new glitter paper packs released this month!
For my card, I used the Mix Tape bundle from the May 2018 release along with Peacock and black glitter paper from the Summer Glitter and Neutrals Glitter Paper Packs from the June release (links to come). I was inspired to create a card for my dad for Father’s Day, because he rocks and he enjoys a good pun.
I started by trimming a piece of white card stock down to 4.25″ x 11″ to make a top-folding A2 card base. Then I stamped the lined cassette tape stamp and heart shaped tape ribbon using Versafine ink in black onyx. I embossed the heart using a rainbow sparkle embossing powder (which sadly didn’t photograph well).
Then I die cut the cassette tape with its details from the glitter paper and adhered them over the lined stamp. I also die cut the musical notes and the “You Rock” sentiment from black glitter paper. To help line the sentiment up, I die cut it from the top layer of the card base as well and used that as a template to adhere the glitter letters on the inside of the card.
Since I am sending this to my dad for Father’s Day, carried the them over to the envelope and stamped a cassette tape and song list label – “A Side” for my dad’s address, “B Side” for my address on the back.
And now I get to say for the first time: It’s your turn to create a project using Concord & 9th products and incorporate some sparkle and shine. Emboss, bling, foil, or glitter it up! Add your projects to the link up – be sure to review the rules to ensure your project is eligible. You have until June 29th to link up your project for a chance to win a $25 Concord & 9th gift card!
