Have You Tried This?

After hopping to may blogs, and seeing lots of these medallions, I thought I would try making one myself. Now I did not use the die that is just out on the market, but rather, I used a border punch and a score board. It was quite interesting trying to get the thing folded, flipped inside out, and stuck to a base circle all in one step.

Since I always make birthday, holiday and sympathy cards, I decided to add to my Anniversary stash. I used a new silver gilding ink around the lacy part of the medallion. the flower is from Prima, called Fabric Fancies and was already glittered. The dp is Making Memories and the black card stock is Pure Luxury from Gina K. Designs. Pearls were added as accents.

That was a little easier! Something tells me I have a 25th anniversary looming somewhere, in which case I can glitter 2 numbers and add them. Have a wonderful day, my faithful friends!
