Eastern Palace in review 1 - gold elegance

This is the first in a series of posts all about the Eastern Palace suite. The Eastern Beauty stamps & Eastern Medallion die bundle in the suite are very cleverly designed to work brilliantly both together and separately, and also combine with other punches & dies for endless possibilities.

I featured Eastern Palace & the new 2017-19 In-Colours in my May sneak peek class. This was the first card we made.

Fresh fig (one of our new In-colours), gold foil & vanilla make a very elegant combination don't you think? I've used a birthday sentiment from Happy Birthday, Gorgeous on this one, but this design would work well for many occasions. One of my class lovelies made it into a wedding card.

The shaped window is cut with the large circle medallion & a medium circle medallion dies plus  a scallop circle die from the Layering Circles set. The circles mix and match & can be cut together for a super quick intricate look. I popped the vanilla layer up on a gold foil card layer for lots more shine... not really apparent in the pic.

The gold floral medallion in the centre is made with one of the Eastern Gold vinyl stickers from the suite. The stickers are clear with a gold foil look, and some coordinate & can be cut with the dies. For this one I stuck the sticker on gold cardstock, then cut it out with the 2 coordinating dies.

I kept the inside simple, just adding more sentiments & a gold border sticker.

So that's card of my Eastern Palace review. I hope you liked it. Lots more to come tomorrow so pop in again tomorrow. Thanks for visiting.

Inky wishes, Di
