Regionals Swap

I promised several people at Perth Regionals that I would post my swap and how I did it, I am sorry it took me so long but better late than never!!

This is the card I gave out as my swaps for Regionals, you may recognise it as being similar to a previous card I posted. It was inspired by that card, but I changed a few things......

So, the technique I used was Faux Embossing. To do this, all I did was stamp the Medallion on my Baja Breeze cardstock in White Craft Ink. I then lined up the image with my Stamp-a-majig and moved it slightly down and to the right and stamped the image again in Baja Breeze ink. Easy!!
The ribbon was done by putting a line of sticky strip accross the bottom of the card and then ruffling the taffeta ribbon accross it. The finished ribbon made me think of a wedding garter, hence the card being a wedding card!!
For the sentiment, I made my own Modern Label by cutting the top and bottom off a scallop oval.

Hope you like it, I am quite fond of this one - even after making 25 of them!!
