A Gorgeous Stampin' Up! Christmas Card using Scallop Edge Medallion Technique

I've brought you a gorgeous Christmas card, here.  I cased this card from Karen.  Check out her blog here.  I changed the card up, a bit.  I added some brads in the corners of the image.  I also added some white gel pen within the scallops.  I love how clean and elegant this greeting card is.  And the white heat embossed snowflake really stands out against the Night of Navy cardstock.  For a great tutorial on how to create this "medallion" with the Scalloped Edge Punch, check out Dawn's video tutorial.


Serene Snowflakes
Season of Joy(sentiment)

Night of Navy; 4 1/4"x11", 3"x3"
Whisper White; Two of 4 1/16"x 5 5/16" (one for the inside) 
Brushed Silver: 3 1/8"x 3 1/8"

Night of Navy; (sentiment)
VersaMark (snowflake)

Scallop Border Punch
White Detail Embossing Powder
Heat Gun
White Gel Pen
To make your scalloped medallion, line up your square piece of cardstock in the center of your scallope edge punch, and punch.  Do the same for each side.  Try to keep the larger layer only 1/8" larger for both the height and width than the image layer.  Otherwise, your scallops will not line up, as well.  Stamp image with VersaMark, and heat emboss with Detailed White Embossing Powder.  Place your brads in the center of the snowflake, and in the corners of the scalloped edges.   Adhere Night of Navy image layer to Brushed Silver layer after adding your scalloped borders to each.  Adhere Whisper White Cardstock to base of card.  Adhere your combined image to the Whisper White using Dimensionals.  Stamp your sentiment using Night of Navy Ink.  Dot Scallops with White Gel Pen.  Adhere other piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the inside and stamp your inside sentiment.  

Here, also is a link to a step-by-step tutorial for the Scallop Edge Medallion Technique on Splitcoast Stampers.  I've included a link, here, to the Splitcoast Gallery showing more examples of this technique.
