Mocha Morning Medallion

Are you getting tired of seeing medallion cards yet?  Hope not, because I don't seem to be tired of making them!

This one has a very different feel to it:  Clean lines instead of my usual vintage style.

Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper

I'm not normally drawn to DSP with such bold designs as this:

Mocha Morning DSP

It is the back side of the paper I used on the Vintage Medallion I showed you yesterday.  When I turned that medallion over, I was WOWED by how cool the big polka dots turned out!

I topped this medallion with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock punched with the 3/4" Circle Punch.  I sponged it lightly with Crumb Cake ink because it was a lot brighter than the Very Vanilla in the DSP.  Then I tied on an Early Espresso Designer Button with Hemp Twine.  I used a piece of Early Espresso card stock, cut with the Circle Scissors Plus as a background for the medallion.

The Very Vanilla background was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, repeating the polka dot motif.  I layered ribbons again:  Early Espresso Satin and Very Vanilla 3/8" Taffeta (both retired, unfortunately, but they were the perfect choice for this card!).  The top layer is current, though–Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta. 

If you're inspried to try your hand at these great medallions, you're going to need Simply Scored from Stampin' Up!  It makes creating a project with so many score lines super easy!  CLICK HERE to go to my online Stampin' Up! Store.

Happy Stamping!
