Still loving the Medallion stamp, this time embossed in Black.

The original idea was taken from a sweetie favour I saw on SCS and I adapted it to make this card. To make the 3D embellishment, you take a strip of patterned paper (mine was from Love Letter) 12"x1.5" and edge it with a border punch. The strip is then concertina'd and the ends stuck together to make a circle. When this is flattened you can adher it to your project. (Shimelle Laine did a great tutorial for these at Christmas time last year if you want a video tutorial)

The cherub and sentiment come from the set Clearly For You (in the Spring Mini) and were punched out with the 1" and 1.25" circle punches. A splash of Real Red 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and some card make the design "POP"!

Hope you like!
