For You Medallion



For those of you who already own edge punches, this is another cool way to put them to good use! My card above utilizes Stampin' Up!s scallop edge punch using Alesha Wall's technique. This card was very quick to put together... in fact, I made 10 of these cards for a swap in about 1 1/2 hours (including time for interruptions from the kids!) ~ that's a record for me, a relatively slow stamper, so this layout is a keeper in my book and perfect for those last minute cards that you need ASAP... :)

The two colors used for this card are Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red. The PP square was cut at 2 3/4 inches square and punched, then matted on 3 inch square of RHR. The scalloped flower circle was stamped on PP, then punched from 1 3/8 inch circle punch, and matted on 1 1/2 inch circle punch in RHR. I used the large flourish from Baroque Motifs to create my background, and the sentiment comes from Fresh Cuts. Lastly, the card edges were lightly sponged to soften the look a bit.

I hope you enjoy my simple medallion card and get a chance to try out this super cool technique for yourself! See you soon!

Another awesome card. It could be used for so many things like anniversaries, Valentine's Day, weddings and on and on. There is no way I would be able to make 10 of these in an hour and a half- I am a super slow stamper. Way to go!
