The medallion panel is made using the following colors starting from the bottom: Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, and Very Vanilla. The sage and vanilla panels were punched on the corners with the Ticket Corner Punch. The edges of the vanilla panel were sponged with chocolate also. The medallion from the set Wanted was stamped twice onto the designer paper in chocolate; then one whole medallion was punched out using the Scalloped Circle Punch, and the center of the other was punched out with the 1-1/4 Circle Punch. The scalloped medallion is mounted onto a 2-inch round piece of chocolate cardstock, and the center piece was mounted onto chocolate cardstock that was punched out with the 1-3/8 Circle Punch. Another piece of chocolate was punched out with the 1-inch Circle Punch, and a sage piece was punched with the 3/4-inch Circle Punch. The star from the Wanted set was stamped in chocolate onto sage paper, then punched out with the Star Punch from SU! Another chocolate paper star was punched out, and the two were matted to make a ten-pointed star.A pewter brad was placed in the center to keep them together. Each matted layer of the medallion is separated by a Dimensional, and is then placed onto the focal panel. The dimensionals lift the medallion high off of the card front for a dramatic effect. The corners of the medallion panel are finished off with more antique pewter brads, and the focal panel is raised above the ribbon by using dimensionals once again.
I am so tired after making this card...but it turned out exactly the way I had envisioned it! It's time for dinner, so I am going to go enjoy some home-cooked food! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all tomorrow! I have found several new and wonderful blogs to share with you, so I hope to update my blogroll tomorrow as well.
