The Medallion

It's finally here. The Medallion stamp is the #1 seller at Stampin' Up right now. It is listed as a background stamp but how could this not be a focal point. It has such a wow factor. If you look at the front cover of the new catalog this card, or a similar version, is there.

This is what I did.
  • I took a piece of naturals white cs 8 1/2 x 4 1/4, scored it at 4 1/4 and folded it in half.
  • Then I inked up that beautiful Medallion stamp with More Mustard ink and stamped it right on the front of that cs.
  • I took more mustard cs 4 1/4 x 1 and put the scallop edge punch to it. Adhered that to the right edge of the card.
  • Then added a piece of brown dsp 1/4 x 4 1/4, and real red cs the same size along the right side.
  • Stamped Thanks so much from Sincere Salutations right on the front in choc. chip.
  • I used the spritzer tool with more mustard marker to give the entire card a speckled appearance.
  • Then right in the center I attached a silver brad from hodgepodge hardware.
That's it and you have a great card to brighten someone's day.
Thanks for stopping by At Paula's Place
