We had our team meeting last night. I decided that I might get some swap cards made – like decided in the middle of the day!! So these cards had to be quick – and they were! A little die-cutting, only a little amount of stamping and then sticking them all together.
I have just started playing with this new suite, the Eastern Palace bundle, which will be available to order from next Monday. I really like how fancy the dies cut and there are so many ways to put them together. I will show you more about that another day but for now here is the card.
These are little 10cm x 10cm cards (4″x 4″). I cut a smaller piece of the new Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper and adhered that to the base and then cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock just a little smaller again. From this piece of Very Vanilla I cut the circular shape using a Thinlit and then the flower petals using a different Thinlit from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits set. Voila! A fancy card with little trouble at all. 🙂
I stamped one of the sentiments at the bottom from the Eastern Beauty stamp set. I love how the sentiment curves around. Then I stamped the small flourish in both top corners. From a different piece of the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper I punched a circle with the 1/2″ circle punch and raised that up with Dimensionals in the centre of the petals and then added an Adhesive Pearl.
I hope you like them. I think they were well received. Would you like your own? I would love to send you some Happy Mail in the post to wherever you are. Just send me an email/comment.
Stay tuned for some more Eastern Palace projects next week including a Blog Hop.
Have a happy day,
