Little Medallion Messages.....

Have you ever desired a classy and elegant stamp that was so pretty, you could create "stamp and go" cards that take minutes but didn't look like it? Well, does Flourishes have a stamp set in its September line up for you!


This elegant medallion -- called Medallion Motif -- designed by Becky Fleck is perfect for quick and easy cards that don't scrimp on style. The medallion measures 4" wide and tall and offers seven different beautifully scripted sentiments designed to fit the center of the medallion. A dotted circle frame serves as an added design element! What fun! 

On to my creations! I decided when I saw this fun design and all the fun sentiments that this was a perfect set for a quick, yet elegant card set....
This set honestly couldn't be easier! These little cards actually measure 4-1/8" square and I had some 4-1/4" envelopes to match. All of my white mats were created using Flourishes Classic White paper and stamped using the medallion stamp with Versafine Black Onyx ink. There's a dotted circle frame and those were all stamped on a scrap, accented with a sentiment and then punched out using a 1-1/4" circle punch. Add a 1/2" black ribbon tied in a bow, pop up the sentiment at the center of the medallion, add a rhinestone and... done! I used Memento Inks in Rosebud, Bahama Blue, and Lulu Lavender. Want to see each one?
