Concord and 9th: Friday Feature

Concord and 9th: Friday Feature

Hello crafty friends!! Today I have a couple of cards to share featuring the new Poinsettia Fill-In and the O Holy Night bundles from Concord and 9th’s holiday release!

My first card features gorgeous the Poinsettia Fill-In bundle!

To create this card I first stamped and gold heat-embossed the background onto a 6″ x 6″ panel of white cardstock. I then stamped the poinsettias and leaves in several Concord and 9th inks.

Poinsettias: Poppy + Cranberry

Large Leaves (around poinsettias): Sea Glass + Clover

Small Leaves: Clover + Evergreen

Centers: Stardust

Berries: Grapefruit

I used ink combos and gradient stamping to add depth to the flowers and leaves. When I finished stamping the background I then stamped some additional flowers onto a separate panel and fussy cut them out instead of diecutting them with the matching die because I wanted them to be a single layer. I then trimmed my background panel to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and adhered the panel onto the front of an A2 top-folding white card base.

Next, I die cut four “season’s greetings” out of white cardstock. I then adhered two “season’s greetings” together and then adhered the other two together, so I had two pairs of stacked sentiments. Next, I die cut the shadow layer out of vellum. I then adhered the vellum diecut between the two stacked “season’s greetings” to create my dimension sentiment. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering my sentiment and one my flowers to my card front with liquid adhesive and then adhering my last flower with foam adhesive.

My next card features the beautiful O Holy Night bundle.

To create this card I first stamped and gold heat embossed the sentiment as well as the star, barn, and foliage onto a panel of white cardstock. I then ink blended over the panel with several distress oxides (Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch & Chipped Sapphire).

After I ink blended the background I then added water spots. Next, I stamped the sentiment and the additional images again but this time a little off-set and in black to create a shadow.

I then trimmed the panel down 1/16″ on all sides and lastly finished the card by adhering the panel to an A2 top-folding white card base with foam adhesive.

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my cards! Be sure to check out the other Feature Friday designers and their amazing creations over at Concord and 9th’s blog.
