FREE Design of the Week - Medal Card


Medals File from Silhouette Design Store. Card by Janet Packer (Crafting Quine) #cardmaking #papercrafts #medal #card #silhouette



Hiya - here's a quick card using this week's free design of the week in the Silhouette store Medals: Design id #144956).



WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
Square Card Blank
Silhouette Cameo/Portrait
Silhouette Printable Gold Foil
Ribbon
Gold Paper
White Wood Grain Paper
Black Cardstock
Card Adhesive
Silhouette Black Sketch Pen
Paprika Font Download (#40924)
Medals File Download (#144956)


Here are my construction steps:

  • Cover the card blank with gold paper.
  • Make a square in the Silhouette Design software and type on the sentiment.
  • Load wood grain paper into the Silhouette and sketch the sentiment with the black pen.
  • Cut the square and mount it on the covered card blank. 
  • In the software make the top layer of the gold medal into a compound path.
  • Cut out the two medal layers in printable gold foil.
  • Cut out some black circles and adhere them between the medal layers and behind the medal.
  • Thread ribbon though the medal and tuck the ends behind the woodgrain square.
  • Card complete! 


I'm sure you know a heap of folk who deserve a medal - and here is a super easy card just for them!






The medals design is available free in the Silhouette Design store for one week from 10th August 2016.
