Christmas Medallion

I knew the whole "simple" Christmas cards wouldn't last long! This one took some engineering but it worked!  I've had some sticker sheets that I picked up here and there, most of which have no brand name on them, and decided it was time to use them up.  This one was several sizes of medallions that I put on red foil and layered up with dimensionals.  Then came the center step card that had to fit the medallion, so it's 5 x 7 with an extra wide center.  The cardstock is Real Red and the DP is Stampin Up too.  The corners on the front are Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco E dies and the rest is just from my stash.

 I had to have the red stripes show thru when it was closed, so the inside sentiment is on a
 circle cut with Spellbinders nestabilities.  The medallion is hung on some gold cord wedged between the front and an extra piece of cardstock at the top inside.  

I think this one will be going to someone special, because it is one of a kind!
