I am back today with a fun and easy card using the NEW Eastern Palace Suite that will be in Stampin' Up's 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue, but is available as a bundle in this early release! You can read more about that and get the bundle details in the announcement here.
This card uses the products available in the Eastern Palace Suite Premier Bundle. You will love the new In Colors too!
How To Make This Hand Stamped Card:
• Cut and score the Very Vanilla Thick cardstock for the card base.
• Add the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper to the card base with SNAIL Adhesive.
To cut the flower:
• Die cut the larger flower from Fresh Fig cardstock using the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot; As the die cut will not completely be cut out, use the Paper Snips to release the flower from the rest of the cardstock.
• Die cut the smaller flower shape from Fresh Fig cardstock and then layer the smaller flower die cut on top of the larger one with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the leaves:
• Die cut a small piece of Lemon Line colored Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper with the same small flower die and then use Paper Snips to cut it in half; Add a bit of SNAIL Adhesive to the middle ‘petal’ and adhere to the back of the strip cut from the same paper.
• Add the Lemon Lime strip of Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper to the card front with SNAIL Adhesive (as shown).
• Adhere the flower on top of the stem using SNAIL Adhesive.
• Straighten out the ‘life is beautiful’ greeting stamp and add to an acrylic block, stamp the greeting with Fresh Fig ink along the edge of the card front with the little swirl stamp in between
• For a final touch, add a small Eastern Gold Vinyl Sticker to the middle of the flower.
Cutting and Scoring:
• Very Vanilla Cardstock – 11” x 4 ¼”, score and fold at 5 ½”
• Fresh Fig- scraps for die cutting
• Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper: 5 ½” x 3 ½”
• Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper: Lemon Lime for flower stem- 3 ¼” x ½”, plus scrap for die cutting
