Make-A-Medallion Diagonal Striped Cards
The Make-a-Medallion Sale-a-Bration stamp set creates stunning layered focal points with a kaleidoscope of pretty patterns. I combined it with the double-sided Lace Doilies for a fun look on these "Last Thursdays" class cards.
Background Basics—The striped papers from any of the Designer Series Paper Stack color collections make a lovely background for cards. I selected the Pool Party patterns from the Subtles Stack, and cut it to 3-3/4" x 5". It's layered onto a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Elegant Eggplant, then mounted on a Pool Party card base. I added a little 1" x 5" strip of Silver Glimmer Paper down the center as a foundation for my medallion.
Two-Step Medallion—I inked the first Make-a-Medallion image layer in Elegant Eggplant and stamped it onto Whisper White card stock. I lined up the second Pool Party image directly over the top for an easy, two-color look. The Layering Circles Framelits were the perfect size dies to cut out the medallion shape.
Doily Layers—I also die cut an Elegant Eggplant circle with the Layering Circles Framelits, at a size just big enough to show through the holes on an intricate Lace Doily. I adhered the doily to the layer with SNAIL, then popped up both layers of the medallion with Dimensionals.
Did you know that the Lace Doilies are double-sided—one side is White and the other is Vanilla?! That makes them coordinate perfectly with any project!
Sweet Sentiment—I finished the medallion by stamping an Elegant Eggplant sentiment from the same stamp set onto Pool Party card stock, then punching out with the Classic Label Punch. It's popped up with more Dimensionals and decorated with a couple Rhinestone Jewels.
Inside Card Décor—The Make-a-Medallion stamp set has another detailed medallion layer that I used to create the Pool Party border on the inside of the card.
Two Cool—The second card uses the same basic color scheme, but highlights the purples! The Wisteria Wonder DSP is layered onto Pool Party then mounted on an Elegant Eggplant card base.
Mixing It Up—I flip-flopped the color on the medallion and it gives it a whole different look! The Eggplant sentiment is stamped onto Wisteria Wonder.
