Ambassadors Victorian Blog Hop Blog Hop

***This post will stay at the top of the Blog for a time

Welcome to the very first informal Blog Hop for the International Ambassadors
 We got together and chatted (online of course) and decided to have a Blog Hop - just for fun and we hope to inspire you along the way. It is a great way for you to get to know who we are and to see what we can do....

The International Ambassadors are a group of  'seasoned' and well known Designers from different parts of the Globe, each bringing their own unique styles to inspire you - what a blessing to be chosen to be part of this amazing Team.  I hope you will join us in this International smorgasbord for the eyes. If you came here from Christina's Blog - you are in the right place.

We have chosen to use Dies from the Victorian Range - these Dies are divine and it is so much fun to create with them, as you will see as you stop by each Designers Blog:

Here are a few photos of my card using the  Victorian Medallion Three  - you will be surprised just how easy it is to create this card - the Dies do all of the work.

Cross Promotional Partners:

Other: White cardstock; green cardstock; Patterned paper, Vintage button, Mulberry Roses; Recycled Lace


1. Cut/emboss one (1) Victorian Medallion Three #2 #3 using patterned paper (#1 being the smallest)
2. Adhere to precut card base using cutting edge Die of Victorian Medallion Three #3
3. Attach Vintage Lace using double sided tape.
4. Cut/emboss one (1) Victorian Medallion Three #1 using co-ordinating patterned paper.
