Eastern Palace – Part Two

By | May 16, 2017

Hi there

Back again with two cute cards using some more dies from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies.  On Saturday I attended a training day with my upline and this was our Make and Take.  I then came home and made another one using the same design.

This card uses two of the new In Colours – Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist.  My Whisper White is 8.5cm x 17cm scored at 8.5cm.  This is matted onto a piece of Tranquil Tide that measures 9cm x 9cm.  I used the big medallion die with one of the small lattice circle dies to create the front.  Once this was cut out I stamped the images from the Eastern Beauty stamp set in Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party.  As this set is Photopolymer I like to have a Stampin Pierce Mat under my card stock when I stamp as I find it gives a better impression.  The envelope is made with some new DSP – Fresh Florals DSP and the Envelope Punch Board.

I then decided to recreate the card but in a different colour scheme – this one used Berry Burst.  I also changed the centre of the medallion with another small lattice die from the set.  This card is slightly bigger – the Whisper White is 9cm x 18cm and the card base is 9.5cm x9.5cm.  I followed the same process as mentioned above to create this card.  The images are stamped in Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide and Pool Party.

The coloured card stock that is behind the medallion measures 8.5cm x 8.5cm.  For the first card I just adhered it straight onto the Whisper White but for the second card I adhered it with dimensionals.

The envelope used the Berry Burst paper from the same paper stack as the first card.

Check back again tomorrow night for another card in the Eastern Palace series.
