Embossed Monochrome Card with Stampin' Up! Daydream Medallions

Embossed Monochrome Card with Stampin' Up! Daydream Medallions


Some of you will know I sing in Colchester Military Wives Choir - Gareth Malone had no idea what he would start when he made the original TV programme over 2 years ago.  Anyway I made today's card for our Musical Director's birthday - she is a super stylish lady so I needed a super-stylish card!

Continuing my quest to use all my Stampin' Up! Stamp Sets before the NEW Annual Catalogue comes out on 1 July 2014, I have moved on to Daydream Medallions as it is a nice large image.  I was playing with heat embossing and realised that as I have the Clear Mount version of this stamp I could layer the images I wanted to use on the Large Clear Block and so stamp and emboss in one go rather than having to line each layer up with the Stamp-a-ma-jig - easy peesy!


The image was stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder on Basic Black card. The sentiment is from a retired set called Curly Cute - I very rarely use retired stamps but the swirls on this one were perfect for what I wanted. A piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon and Large Rhinestones Basic Jewels finish the card.
