The more I’ve used the Eastern Palace bundle of products the more I’ve loved them and my favourite has to be the Eastern Medallions Thinlits. I’ve never had so much fun with just one sets of dies, the combinations seem to be endless.
This week I’ve been creating window cards by using the circle medallions to create apertures which I’ve then filled with different circles of card from behind.
The first step to making this card was to cut a layer of Very Vanilla 9.5cm by 13.5cm and arrange the circle dies in the top half.
After the medallions have been cut remove all the small pieces so you are left with the window.
It was at this stage that I did all my stamping, you can see that in the main picture. I love how the little stamps could fit in the small gaps to add extra interest.
The next stage was to create the multi-coloured circle layers in the window. To do this I laid the circle Framelits over the various sections of the window to decide which circle I wanted to use.
I then cut these circle out as shown above but on gold foil, this gives you three circles. The next step is to take the smallest and largest circles and glue them to the back of your window matt.
I then mounted this onto a matt of Fresh Fig (or Dapper Denim) which measured 10cm x 14cm and then onto a card base measuring 21cm by 14.5cm scored at 10.5. Here is the finished card again.
