Happy Monday!! I had a wonderful weekend with the girls in Paris and sharing the New Catalog with them! I also spent time with Family! It couldn’t have been a better weekend! With Father’s Day around the corner, it’s time to get those cards ready. I created this Medallion card that is perfect for Father’s Day!
I got the idea for this card from the fabulous, Patty Bennett! I fell in love and just had to recreated it using the Eastern Palace Suite!
Starting with a Whisper White card base, I layered on a piece of Color Theory Designer Series Paper in Old Olive. The paper is cut to 5-1/2″ x 4″ and I placed it onto the card front where it meets side to side but has a border on the top and bottom! Now for the focal point, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 5″ x 4″ and die cut out some medallions with the Eastern Medallion Framelits. Be sure that you leave room for your greeting and don’t go too close to the edge. I used both the solid circle and layering circle for both of these so a total of 4 framelits. They all went through the Big Shot at once but if you find that they are moving, just place a post-it note over the top to secure them in place!
Now it’s time for stamping! I stamped the 3 styles of circles and greeting from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink! Don’t forget that you can bundle the stamp set and framelits together and save 10%. I thought the greeting from the Eastern Beauty Set was perfect for Father’s Day! Then I stamped the actual greeting for Father’s Day on the inside with the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set.
The little strip on the inside of the card was leftover from the front. Since the paper stack is 6″ x 6″ and I only used 5-1/2″ x 4″ so that little 1/2″ strip was used on the inside. I probably would have tossed that little piece so this way it adds a little to the inside of the card! Finally to finish off the card, I added some Glitter Enamel Dots in Old Olive. I know that glitter is not normally manly but it totally goes with this card so I think it works! 🙂 Right?
This style of card is perfect for any color you have on hand or your favorite color. What color would you use for your card like this?
