This Turnabout Background card was created with inks, stamps, and dies from Concord and 9th. Even though the background looks like cardstock, it isn't. I created it using a turnabout stamp!
A turnabout stamp is a background stamp that is used to create a pattern. I created this background by inking, turning, and stamping four times with four different colors. After each color, you simply turn the cardstock and stamp again with a different color.
Turnabout stamps are only available at Concord and 9th. Here are just a few of these awesome stamps! Click on a picture to scroll through.
CAS(E) this Sketch
I decided to play along with CAS(E) this Sketch this week, which is where you take a sketch and create a card using it as inspiration. It's a great way to come up with new ideas. I think this might turn into a weekly thing for me! Here's this week's sketch:
I think you will agree that my card is pretty much a literal interpretation of the sketch.

How to Make the Card
The first thing we will do is create the background with the Lovely Lattice Turnabout Stamp using Sprout, Oceanside, Peacock, and Clover inks. Cut that piece down to 5" x 3-3/4".
Use a die cutting machine and the hexagon die-cut to cut three shapes out of the Sprout, Oceanside, and Peacock cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment on the 3-3/4" x 1-1/4" piece of Clover with Versamark. Cover with silver embossing powder, then melt with a heat gun.
Now, let's put it all together. Use some Gina K Connect Glue to glue the Clover cardstock to the white card base. Then glue the turnabout piece to the Clover cardstock. Use Foam Squares to adhere the sentiment and two of the hexagons. Use glue for the other one.
