This will probably be version 1 of a thousand. Medallion is one of the most popular stamps of the new Stampin' Up! catalog. I knew the first time I went through the new catalog that I would have to have it. Here is my first take on this stamp using Stampin' Pastels to create the various shades of pink and burgandy on a light gray textured cardstock.
The design for this card came from the IBC or Idea Book and Catalog. Sometimes I forget that it is more than a catalog. There are so many wonderful cards and projects we can copy. I changed the colors and greeting. Their version had stitching and I used the paper piercer for some minor detailing. Ideas are just that 'ideas' - a starting point you can alter as much or as little as you want to make your own creation.
