Punched Medallion and a sale!!

Okay...I have something way cool to share with you!! At least I think it is. Taylor (taylored expressions) has the coolest tutorial on her blog to create this medallion in the center of my card. I used a Martha Stewart punch while she used a Stampin' Up one, but the result was the same...a framed medallion. And it's so ultra easy. I tried it with all my horizontal punches. Some require smaller squares than others, but they all have unique shapes and are so fun. Go check out her site by clicking on her blog name mentioned above!!

The center of the medallion is from the 10 Design Centers and borders (JustRite) set. I stamped the circle onto the same dp as the rest of the card with Frayed Burlap, punched out the circl and coated it with crystal lacquer. I then mounted it onto a small scalloped Nestabities Circle. Both layers are popped up with dimensionals.

The rest of my card is VERY simple. I just made two square matted layers of Melissa Frances dp, sewed around the edges and ran it through my cuttlebug with the Snowflake embossing folder. The edges are all ink distressed with Frayed Burlap (Ranger Distress Ink), and the Ice Green Pearls are (Kaisercraft).
