Card Medallions


Hello! One of my favorite things to do when making cards is to create my own embellishments. Right now I am addicted to making these folded medallions... I think they are a great way to add dimension and ensure that your embellies are a perfect match.

Patterned paper (GCD Studios: Artsy Urban mat pad), glitter stickers, tool (GCD Studios: Chip Art Tool and flower center stamps), paint (Glimmer Mist), cardstock (white), other (scalloped edge decorative scissors)

To create card:
1) make card from cardstock 
2) adhere patterned paper from mat pad
3) adhere medallion on card
4) stamp and paint chipboard, allow to dry and adhere to medallion, add punched paper and number sticker

To make medallion:
Punch edge of paper
Cut into a 12" long strip. Vary width of strip to change size of medallion
Score at every 1/4" mark
Make accordion fold at score marks
Adhere ends
Fold in medallion flat
Glue to disc








Patterned paper (GCD Studios: Artsy Urban mat pad),  layered flowers (Artsy Urban), glitter stickers, cardstock (kraft), other (scalloped edge decorative scissors)
To create card:
1) make card from kraft
2) adhere patterned paper from mat pad
3) adhere letter stickers
4) tie on bow
5) fold and layer medallion with parts of Artsy Urban layered flower and adhere to bow

Have a great day!

Those turn out so pretty. :) I tried making some over Valentine's Day. Sadly, the adhesive that I used was not very stron and those dang medallion flowers kept popping off of the cards. . gluing them to a disc first was probably the step that I missed. :) Thank you for the tutorial!!
