The simple easy medallion card ...

This card is one that we made at the Autumn Winter Mini launch. It is a CASE (that is Copy And Share Everything) from the front cover of the new Mini.
You really dont need to be creative in this game: just have an eye for what you like and using the stampsets that you love, substitute what doesn't work for you into something that does.
Take one Melon Mambo card front for instance:
The medallion stamp is so big it covers almost the whole card front so two stamps and its done.
With a strip of the gorgous Designer Series Paper "Cottage Garden", layered on a strip of the new in-colour Rich Razzleberry.
 How pretty are these two colours together and they go with Orchid Opulence, Pale plum and lavender lace as well.... Now I do hope you like butterflies because this one comes as an a la carte single stamp (on the last page of the new mini catalogue) - if you don't like butterflies just  think of it as a great big purple moth.
But, seriously who doesn't like a fluttering butterfly?
Lastly we added the tiny tags that say "hello friend" - they are so sweet: 17 stamps for justs $28.95!
We have punched them out with the new Jewelry tag punch. The accents are held on with a silver brad.
