I have been playing with the gorgeous Eastern Beauty stamp set and co-ordinating Eastern Medallion dies and thought I would share one of the cards I made with you today.
I went for a different shaped card base for this card by cutting an 8¼” by 8” piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock and scored it in half at 4” to make a longer, thinner card.
I cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock to 7¾” by 3½” and a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock 7½” by 3¼”. I rounded the upper left and lower right hand corner of both panels using my Project Life Corner Rounder. Taking the Night of Navy panel I layered up my Eastern Medallion Dies, one inside the other, largest to smallest in the centre of the panel taking care not to go near the edge. I added a Layering Circle die around the ‘medallion’ and ran the panel and dies through the Big Shot. I repeated the same die cutting on the Lemon Lime Twist panel. This is a great way to make the most of your cardstock as no-one will ever know each panel had a large shape cut from it. The result is 2 gorgeous intricate ‘doily’ like shapes which I then cut in half using my Stampin’ Trimmer.
I cut a Whisper White layer 7¼” by 3” and stamped the ‘starburst’ type shape in alternating Night of Navy ink and Lemon Lime Twist ink about ⅓rd of the way up the panel then stamped the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts stamp set just below in Night of Navy ink. I added the cut medallions, staggered, and on either side of the panel using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I then layered the Whisper White panel on the Lemon Lime Twist panel using Tombow Liquid Adhesive and added both to the Night of Navy Layer. I added the whole piece to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I absolutely love this card and I am really liking the night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist colour combo.
