Medallion Birthday Card

This is a card that I made for this week's LNS Challenge.  Patty Bennett ( came up with the great idea to make a border using the Medallion punch - so I thought I would give it a try!  I stamped the image three times on a strip of Whisper White c/s.  Then I used the SAB Scallop Trim Border Punch along the bottom.  I ran it through my crimper 4 times to make the paper more pliable.  I then feathered the edges with Chocolate Chip, feathered the edges with a VersaMark inkpad, and then added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  Since the strip is bulky, I attached it to the back of the Whisper White card stock using some sticky tape.

I also used the kissing technique for this card.  I inked up the Medallion stamp with Brocade Blue and inked up the Woodgrain Background stamp with Chocolate Chip, and then "kissed" the stamps together.  That's how I made the lines that you see on the Medallion image that was punched using out the scallop punch.  Here's a list of what I used:

Stamps: Warm Words, Medallion and Woodgrain Background Stamps
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue
Papers: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Impression Folder, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Designer Label Punch, Scallop Punch, Vanilla Hardware/Brads, Bashful Blue Ribbon, Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads, Paper Piercing Tool, VersaMark Pad, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Mini-Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Crimper, Sponges

What a lovely card, Eileen. I am going to have to case this. I love the look of the lace, and it looks so soft after all that crimping. Do you heat the versamark and Dazzling Diamonds in order for the glitter to stick?

I just brushed the VersaMark pad over the edges and dipped the edges into the glitter. No need to heat set, it sticks without having to do anything else.
