Rope Medallion

I used rope to create this focal image and I wasn't quite should what to call  it so I decided on a Rope Medallion.

To make this medallion I die cut a felt circle using my nesties circle die. Then took some cotton rope that is about 1/4" thick and started creating a circle glueing every so often using Fabric-Tac.  I stopped wrapping when I got to the size I wanted.  I then added an aqua pearl accent to the middle.  Every simple and easy to make.

For the card base I used Hawaiian Shores cardstock.  To give it some texture I cut a piece of burlap a little bigger that the size of the card and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  It's hard to see in the photo but it does add a subtle texture.  I die cut and stamped a piece of white cardstock using the Mat Stack I collection.  The ink I used is VersaMagic sahara sand.  I stamped the flourish with Versamark and the sentiment with hawaiian shore ink.  Adding some bitty dots paper in hawaiian shores to the bottom of the card and cut a 1/2" strip of kraft cardstock and attached it behind the focal image finished off the card.  Oh, and I also rounded the bottom corners with my corner chopper.

Thanks for visiting.
