Feature Friday: Top It Off

Hello friends! Today is Feature Friday over at the Concord & 9th blog. The whole Where Creativity Meets C9 team is helping Angie and Greg celebrate Concord &9th’s 3rd birthday! The big three! Today we are featuring the Top It Off bundle. * (Find all of their August release here!*)

This is a fun birthday cake-themed bundle, but of course that’s not the only thing you can make with it. For my first card, I used the little bunting stamps to create a super clean and simple birthday card.

I stamped the poles onto a top-folding A2 card base and then stamped the individual flags using pastel inks. I then stamped the sentiment along the top and added a few black sequins. Then I thought it still needed something, so I grabbed some black embroidery thread, punched a couple of small holes on the poles and fed two equal lengths of thread through and tied them into bows. If you don’t want the thread to be visible when you open the card, you could layer this as a panel onto a separate card base, sandwiching the thread between the layers.

For my second card, I used the three cake layers (individual stamps) and stamped them into one large layer cake with a rainbow of pastel inks. I stamped the largest layer in the middle because I like to live dangerously when I make cakes. Go big or go home, right?

I then stamped the sentiment onto some matching scrap cardstock and cut it out using the banner die included in the bundle. I adhered that to my card with foam tape.

That’s it for me today. Be sure to visit the blogs of my super talented team members to see more inspiration for this bundle. And check out the new release*at Concord & 9th!
