Lace & Medallions, Oh my!

These are 2 of my favorite styles of cards to make because their very easy to make and very beautiful. It also doesn't hurt that these are 2 of my favorite stamps too.



I used a simple pale green card base to start and then layered a French Script stamp over the whole card. 
Next I stamped the flower, followed by leaves, sprigs and the greeting.
 I finish off this card with a little Bling in the center of the flower.

What I used on this card:
  • Hero Arts: Etched Medallion
  • Hero Arts: Leaf Prints
  • Memory Box: Sprig
  • Distress Ink in : Antique Linen, Crushed Olive and Frayed Burlap.
  • VersaMagic Dew Drop in Pumpkin Spice



I'm a huge fan of Medallions and instantly fell in love with this one by Hero Arts.
I inked the edges of my card first before I applied the Medallion. For the Medallion I used Versamark Watermark and then applied Chalks with dabbers in Red, Pink and Glittery Brown.
I finished it off with my Sentiment and a touch of Bling in the center of the stamp.


What I used on this card:

  • Hero Arts: Leaf Prints (sentiment) 
  • Hero Arts: Starburst Lace
  • Inkadinkado: Blending Chalks
  • Distress Ink: Frayed Burlap
Thanks for looking!
