Holly Berry Hearts and Stripes Medallion

I can't tell you when I've had more fun making a card!
This is Holly Berry's Hearts and Stripes Medallion . I used ColorBox Warm Red Chalk Ink, then stamped and embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The image was stamped 3 times on Iced Pink Prismatics , once on Frosted Pink Prismatics , and twice on Vibrant Pink Prismatics cardstock. I cut away the layers as shown, and popped them up using foam tape. Now I must tell you that you don't have to have nearly this many layers. I just don't ever know when to stop!!! LOL!


That gorgeous glitter is Art Institute Glitter's Crystal Ultrafine Transparent glitter. The glitter square outside the pink square was made by placing a strip of 1/4" Scor Tape around the edges of the square panel, then adding the glitter so it sticks to the tape. Simple, huh?

The corners were punched with a Fiskars corner punch. I added Mini Pearls to embellish.
For the inside I stamped the medallion, cut it out, then placed a sentiment from the new JustRite Romantic Sentiments borders and centers set. It's one of the brand new releases from JustRite stampers. I expect my shipment to arrive tomorrow night (Thursday), so be sure to check back!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
