On the CASE: Everyday Bouquet
On the CASE: Everyday Bouquet
What do you do when you’re low on thank you cards?
I’ve got a simple answer! You whip out a bunch of today’s CASE file Concord & 9th Everday Bouquet Turnabout cards! How’s that for straightforward?! I really do love the look of this card! It’s about as CAS as I can get. I think the intuitive layering of the Turnabout style makes the overlapping florals look effortless. Well, let’s face it, it is! Pick any 4 colors, and you can’t go wrong! Monochromatic, high contrast…. they all work. Let’s get right to the instructions today and explore this fun CASE!
If you’re new to Concord & 9th Turnabouts – it’s an exclusive stamp style that allows you to rotate the cardstock and stamp the same image over and over to create a perfectly balanced image or design, in multiple colors, if you want! This particular Turnabout is actually a part of a starter kit. The kit comes with everything you need to make your first successful turnabout cards. You will need a stamp positioning tool, such as the Tonic/Tim Holtz stamp platform.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?
Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – I totally love this card! The turnabout floral images are fun and easy, and the sentiment yields a 2-in-1, so there’s really no excuse to not make two cards while you’re at it!
I love that this particular design can be done up in any color combination! So, pull out your Color Coordinator and mix up some fun combos.

Today’s technique is going to blow your mind!
I have been a fan of the rotating stamp style, like Concord & 9th’s Turnabout ™ stamps, for a while now. It’s just so cool how you can turn the paper 90-degrees, stamp the same image, and end up with a filled-in design that looks like wallpaper or wrapping paper!
Let’s go next-level with stencils!
Stencils are pretty popular right now, and there’s so many ways you can use them. I was inspired by my latest Altenew Academy class to see what new and innovative way I could use them for my latest project.
