Medallion Background Stamp


Just wanted to stop in to showcase one of Stampin' Up!'s FABULOUS Background stamps, Medallion. This stamp was actually the most purchased stamp last year. :) I though I would never buy background stamps. This was my first and now I buy them all the time! Get yours 20% by e-mailing your order to me!

This card is actually using some retired items, and I have not gotten around to remake it yet...
The base is Bermuda Bay 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4". I inked the Jolly wheel in Bermuda Bay ink and rolled it across the entire card front. I used Versamark, Gold Embossing Powder, and the heat tool to emboss the medallion and peace(non-SU!). Then, you can use either your 1/16" handheld punch or paper piecer to punch a whole for the cord. Sadly, SU! has stopped carry elastic cord :( It has always been a favorite of mine.
Have a great day!!!!
