Lacy Medallion

Hi Bloggers.

Another card from the Pick of the Day last month -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card with the Spellbinders Garden Lattice A4 M-Bossabilities Folder. I stamped one of the Medallions from the Creative Expressions Lacy Medallions Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the backing die from the Spellbinders Puzzle Effect Cut, Fold & Tuck die set. I added a 8mm White Pearl to the centre. I cut another from the same die out of Black Card. I cut the smallest of the Grand Decorative Circles out of White Card and the next size up out of Black Card.

I cut 2 borders out of Black Card using the Spellbinders Octagon Strips & Accents die set. I folded and tucked them. I added some 8mm and 5mm White Pearls.

 I cut 4 of the little motifs from the same die set and folded and tucked them and added a 5mm White Pearl to the centre.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Black Silky Crush Ribbon. I added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment and a couple of Black Decorative Stick Pins.

I finished the card by adding some Black Swirls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Hi Julia,

    I think this is a beautiful card. The stamp is a very stunning centrepiece and the black and white theme is very elegant. Strangely I have never been a fan of the fold and tuck dies even tho I'm totally addicted to spellbinder dies and now have over 200 individual dies in my collection but this card is making me have a more open mind to the potential and dimension the fold and tuck dies have brought to your design. Thank you Julia for the inspiration!
