Happy March! Spring is right around the corner (thank goodness) and 2021 is shaping up to be a much better year than 2020 was, that’s for sure! It’s time for our March 2021 Color Fusers Blog Hop, and we’ve got a very pretty combination of Seaside Spray, Gray Granite, and Early Espresso to share this month:
My card this month features the Treasured Medallion stamp set. This set can be purchased alone, or as a bundle with the Many Medallions Dies (which will save you 10% over purchasing the stamps and dies alone!) This set is SO pretty, and can be used for pretty much any occasion!
To make my card, I used Thick Basic White cardstock as my base. I used regular Basic White as my top layer, and stamped two medallions in full strength Seaside Spray ink, then switched to Gray Granite, but stamped it off to make it a little lighter. Once all of the medallions were stamped, I layered it on top of Early Espresso cardstock. I then wrapped a piece of Gray Granite 1/4 inch Shimmer Ribbon around the layers and secured it to the back. I stamped my sentiment onto a small piece of Seaside Spray cardstock, and embossed it with the Scripty Embossing Folder. I then used the Messages Die to cut out the sentiment, and stamped the small flourish next to it in Seaside Spray ink.
Before mounting the sentiment piece, I made a figure 8 with the ribbon and trimmed the tail pieces on both ends. I secured the ribbon to the back with a small piece of tape, and mounted the whole thing to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally, I added some Opal Rounds to the centers of the medallions, and my card was complete!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Thick Basic White cardstock base: 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Early Espresso cardstock middle layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches
Basic White cardstock top layer: 3-5/8 x 4-7/8 inches
Seaside Spray sentiment piece: approximately 3/4 x 2 inches
