Time to use the Eastern Beauty Bundle
It has been quite some time that I pulled my Eastern Beauty Bundle from my collection and create with it! After completing my card, why did I wait so long! The Eastern Medallion Thinlits are unbelievable and paired with the Layering Circle Framelits it gave me the PERFECT focal point. It’s time to use the Eastern Beauty Bundle!
Do you not love the look of the large medallion in the Eastern Medallion Thinlits! I am blown away by it’s beauty! It is such a striking focal point! It does stay “attached” to the card stock when you initially run it through. I chose to use the largest scallop circle from the Layering Circle Framelits to cut mine. The inside detail was a smaller die included in the set. I stamped on Soft Sky with Tranquil Tide and used a 1 1/4″ circle punch to punch out the dotted frame for my hello sentiment. The “hello” was punched with the 1″ circle punch. Behind the medallion I layered it with a Tranquil Tide and Soft Sky Circle to tie in all the colors featured on my card. Yes, Dapper Denim is included in the Speciality Designer Paper but I am out of it! I used it all up in past classes so I found Soft Sky (also retiring) to be a ideal match with Tranquil Tide. The ribbon was a small touch of texture as well as the Simply Stripes Embossing Folder on the colored card stock.
Vertical or Horizontal ?
When I create a card, two things come to mind, make it vertical or horizontal or change color combination. In this case, I chose to try the card vertically and horizontally. I loved the color combination of Soft Sky, Tranquil Tide and Very Vanilla so I eliminated that!
- cut Thick Very Vanilla 4 1/4″ x 11″
- score at 5 1/2″
- cut Soft Sky 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
- cut Tranquil Tide and DSP 4″ x 5 1/4″
- using your Stampin’ Trimmer, cut on a diagonal, to create two halves
- emboss the colored card stock with your choice of embossing folder (Simply Stripes)
- attach to Soft Sky
- attach Tranquil Tide Ribbon (a simple know)
- add your medallion focal point
