This Eastern Palace Medallion Card With Gold Accents is made with products in the newly released Eastern Palace Premier Bundle. This Bundle contains products that will be in the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog coming out in June. This is your chance to get your hands on brand new Stampin’ Up! products right now while you wait for the new catalog! In face, these two Bundles that are being offered, will not have all these products bundled together in the new catalog, only the stamp set and thinlits dies.
These Bundles have so many exciting products, you will barely know where to start creating!
Let’s talk about the card I made. It starts with the card base made from the new In Color, Tranquil Tide. I originally chose two patterns of the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper to layer on the front of the card, one on top and one on the bottom, but then I changed my mind and only used the one piece! I took the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies to the Big Shot with a piece of the Tranquil Tide Cardstock just to experiment with the dies. No matter what dies you use, I’m convinced the medallions will turn out just beautiful! Since I had a scrap of Shimmery White Cardstock on the table, I used that, and that ended up being the piece I used as the focal point on the card. It is adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals snipped a little smaller to make them fit on the back of the medallion. This pops up the medallion a little bit for a nice look. Then I put another die cut piece layered on the center of that medallion. This piece the petals can be pulled up for a 3D effect if you like. The little “hello” greeting is in the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set, and I punched it out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch.
The Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers are a new item in the Bundle and are going to be fun to use! They have a clear border that is cut very close to the design so they aren’t going to scream “stickers!”. You get a lot of stickers in the package. You can see the strip of gold accents I added to the bottom the designer paper. For two more accents on the card, I folded over a small piece of the Gold 1/4″ Natural Trim. Thankfully this ribbon is not being retired because I think it will go quite well with the Eastern Palace products! And for a little bit more bling, I used the Metallic Enamel Shapes which come with both gold and silver in the one package. These are sticking around as well!
