Medallion Birthday

Here is another card we will be making at my upcoming card buffet next weekend.  The Medallion background stamp is great for making quick, yet beautiful cards.  As with any background stamp, the best way to get a perfect stamped image is to thoroughly ink up your stamp, lay it down -- face up -- on your work surface, position your card stock on top, then cover with a pc of scratch paper -- hold it firmly in place and rub over entire surface.

In real life, this card is super sparkly.  I used the two way glue pen to outline the entire edges of the large medallion and then added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  Love that glitter.  It goes on so evenly and has just the perfect blend of sparkles -- i.e. there aren't weird colors in the glitter that don't match the project like some other glitters out there.

The Rich Razzleberry color is such a beautiful color of purple.  Here, I've paired it with the Blushing Bride, which softens it a bit, I think.  The center punch out is a stamp from the Circle Circus stamp set.  And, of course, the Basic Pearls once again!  Elegant, easy embellishment -- and you get a LOT for your money!  Gotta love that!
