It’s been awhile since I made a card using products from the Eastern Palace Suite so over the weekend I had some time to create and here’s what I made.
The Eastern Palace Suite (page 18-19 AC) consists of not only stamps and dies but Designer Series Paper (DSP), Gold Vinyl Stickers and Mini Tassels Assortment. I hadn’t used any of the tassels so wanted to add these as a feature to my cards. These cards use all but one of the products
The top layer is Very Vanilla cut at 9.5cm x 13.8 then a layer of Fresh Fig or Tranquil Tide cut at 10cm x 14.3cm. The base is Thick Very Vanilla.
I stuck the sticker on a piece of Fresh Fig then die cut it with the coordinating die. This is adhered with dimensionals. The 1/4″ Natural Trim in gold goes perfectly with this card to attach the mini tassels.
For the sticker on this card I ended up ‘fussy cutting’ around the sticker as the coordinating die covered up too much of the layer underneath. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.
For both cards the Very Vanilla layer is adhered directly to the coloured card stock and then adhered with dimensionals.
These colours look really great with the Very Vanilla – almost regal.
Well that’s me for tonight.
