Medallion To You From Me Card - CAS-ual Fridays CFC #36 Challenge

Here is my second card made for the CAS-ual Fridays Penguin Suit challenge which was to make a black and white card with no other colour allowed.  I so enjoyed making the first card I just had to make another! 

I used a 5 1/4" square white card base again.  I stamped the SU! Medallion stamp, trimmed the white panel and mounted it to a black mat.  I die cut the Memory Box Woven Circle shape and mounted that to a larger white circle.  I stamped the sentiment, die cut it out and I popped it up over the Woven Circle.  I added clear rhinestones for a touch of sparkle to finish off the front.

I don't normally add mat layers inside white card bases but when I opened the card I found some black marks - goodness only knows how they got there!  Anyway, I added a black mat with a white panel stamped with a part of the Medallion image in the bottom corner.  I stamped part of the image again in the corner on the front of the envelope to finish off.  I think the SU! Medallion stamp is gorgeous - so elegant!

CS: PaperMania square white card blank, SU! Basic Black & Whisper White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Tools: Memory Box Woven Circle die, circle Nestabilities dies
Embellishments & accessories: SU! Basic Rhinestones, 3d foam tape

Simply gorgeous! I love the medallion stamp with the woven circle die in the middle. Love how you finished the inside and made a coordinating envelope. Beautiful.
