Hi there Blog Friends!! Better late than never, right? I piddled around in my craft room and got off on a small organizing tangent before I steered myself back to make a card. I’m sure that happens to you. If I’m not careful, I wind up spending the whole day organizing and then have nothing to show for the day. This beautiful medallion stamp is one I purchased from Rubbernecker. It’s a one layer stamp, but I thought it would look stunning if I cut it apart and tiered it. There are no set lines to do this on, but I pulled out all my Spellbinders Octogons and laid them on top to estimate a good cutting area then made two interior cuts. It worked out perfectly with the octagons.
I added the frilly border around the octagon using Spellbinders Fancy Tags two. I added border along the bottom of my focal panel and also the card. For the sentiment I used the forked pieces of the two Spellbinders Nested Pennants set – they layer together just right. There was certainly not much room left for anything else, lol, so I add a small bow and pearls! I promise this is not a Christmas card but I suppose if I squinted and had the right sentiment, I could make it into one. I just love these colors together, they were my inspiration. Well, that’s it for me today!
