Happy Monday!!! I just have to share with you my favorite card right now! I don’t know what it is about this card but when I first saw it, I fell in love so hard. The idea is from the amazing, Sara Douglas and I just had to recreate it. It’s so amazing!!! I hope you love it too!
Isn’t this card just stunning with all the images coming together to make this masterpiece?? I’m loving it so hard right now!!! I really need to try different color combinations to really see what I can come up with! Let me know some combinations to try in the comments below!
I started with a Tranquil Tide card base. Next I took a piece of Very Vanilla (4″ x 4-1/4″) and die cut out the pieces in the circle with the Eastern Medallion Framelits. There are 2 different ones in the set and I just picked one; either would work! Then I started stamping with the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set (Bundle & Save 10%). First, I stamped the circle in the center and the greeting! Second, I stamped the 3 dots between each of the double triangles. I found that rotating the cardstock for each stamped image was best. When I tried to angle around myself, I ended up with the dots a little diagonal. Finally, I stamped the triangle of dots between each of the row of dots. While it does look pretty intimidating, just do each section and take your time, it will all come together and look amazing!
I just love how the more you stamp, the more it evolves into this cool image! Now it is time to assemble. I wanted the die cut portion to really pop out so I added a square of Tranquil Tide (3″ x 3″) to the center of the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper (4″ x 5-1/4″). I added some Gold Ribbon around the stamped Vanilla piece with a Mini Tassel tied into the bow! Next, I added the stamped Vanilla piece to the Designer Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals, securing the ribbon under the Dimensional. Using the Gold Vinyl Stickers, I added a border piece above and below the Vanilla stamped piece. I just love it!!!
I hope this gives you more inspiration for ways to use the Eastern Palace Suite. You can check out other samples here, here, and here!
