Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you are having a great day.
It's time for another Card Sketch Challenge at DCWV. You can see the inspiration sketch as well as the blog address below. Here's my take on the challenge.
I used DCWV's The Heirloom Stack to create my card. As you can see from the sketch, I turned it on its side. First, I trimmed and matted a darker, multicolored panel with a golden, wheat-colored paper to cover the entire front of a plain, white 7x5 card. Then, I picked five coordinating papers from the stack to make the pleated medallions.
Each medallion began as a 3/4" x 12" strip of paper. I scored each piece every 1/4" and folded it using accordion fold. I punched medium hearts from the same papers using Fiskars' That's Amore punch. I added a sentiment from Fiskars' Friends Forever Quotes and added a flourish from Spellbinders' Parisian Accents.
I had lots of fun making this card. You should definitely give medallions a try. There is still plenty of time to get your card in if you are so inclined. Check out the details here:http://dcwvinc.blogspot.com/2012/11/november-stack-holic-template-challenge.html
