All My Love and More...

Hello! Today is a snow day for us, which is a bonus since it is on a Friday before a 3-day weekend! I'm back again... this time with a trio of cards made with the Concord and 9th Everyday Bouquet Turnabout Toolkit.

I probably sound like a broken record, but I really love the versatility of this toolkit. Yesterday I made a welcome baby card with it. I love floral bouquets and how you can change up the colors to create different looks with this.

My first card today is for a dear friend who recently lost her dad. I chose to make a non-traditional sympathy card and instead I'm calling it a "celebration of life" card. I used the turnabout stamp 4-times, using 3 colors of inks, then heat embossing the final turn with rose gold embossing powder. I used the label die included in the kit to die cut a portion of the bouquet out, then I stamped the sentiment over the bouquet. I added a foam layer to pop it back over the bouquet.

Once again, I added some stitching to my layers and a few rose gold metallic gems around the sentiment.

The next 2 cards are super simple. I used the scored, standard sized cards that were included with the kit to make one layer cards. These are both mail-friendly as they are one layer (with the exception of the sentiments which are popped up in the center of the bouquet with foam tape).

The first one will be my dad's birthday card (his birthday is at the end of the month). The sentiment is from the Hello Sunshine Turnabout and the circle is from the Hello Sunshine Turnabout Dies. I will be playing with these sets more (hopefully soon!).

The final card is a thank you card, which I'm always in need of! The sentiment is included in the kit as is the square die cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
