Pop Heart Love

Pop Heart Love

Hi Creative Friends,

Concord & 9th has super cute new stamps and dies out now so we couldn’t resist sharing a fun, full of love card design. It features the Pop Heart turnabout (they are always fun!) and the matching Pop Heart dies.

We started by making the turnabout background. If you have never used one of the turnabout stamps by Concord & 9th, then here are a few pointers. We start by using the printed acetate grid included in with the stamp set. Next it is and mounted in our stamp positioner as if it were the paper. Then, we lay the stamp over top the acetate sheet, making sure to match the pattern on the stamp with the pattern on the printed acetate, then attach it to the door of the positioner. Finally, remove the acetate sheet and mount a 5 7/8″ square piece of white cardstock exactly where the acetate was. Now it is ready to stamp.

We begin with our first color, ink and stamp, then rotate one turn (we like to go clockwise but you can choose either clockwise or counter-clockwise, just stick to the same direction throughout all four turns. We repeated the process by rotating a quarter turn, ink and stamp, using a different color. We continued with these steps until all four sides were stamped.

We set the stamped background aside for now and worked on the sentiment. For this, we cut out a piece of matching Sorbet paper using the large circle and ‘big hugs’ die in the matching Pop Heart dies. At the same time, we cut out a plain gold foil circle and another Sorbet circle using the same circle die.

The circles were stacked and glued together.

To put it all together, an A2 white cardstock card base was made. After a background panel was trimmed and wrapped with gold cord, then tied with a bow, it was mounted on the card base.

Next, a foam backing was added to the back of the sentiment circle, leaving a gap in the foam for the cord to rest in.

The circle was added and two Grapefruit colored cardstock hearts were added for our last step! That completes our card for today. We hope it sparked a little creative in you to make your own!
