Eastern Medallions Window Cards

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.

easternmedallionwindowscards

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.

windowcarddies

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.

Fresh Fig with Eastern Palace Suite

Today I’m sharing my first card made with the Eastern Palace Suite of products and three of this years new In-Colours: Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist. I chose a basic card base in Fresh Fig as I wanted to focus on stamping with this project. I love how this turned out and feel this stamp set could very easily make its way into my favourites, I love it.

I choose to make my own patterned paper using the stamps and I split this down into four steps.

freshfigeasternpromisestampingsteps

Step 1. I stamped the large squarish shape in Tranquil Tide in a grid pattern across the Very Vanilla cardstock.

Step 2. I continued using Tranquil Tide and place the little flower shape in the centre of each square.

Step 3. I switched to Fresh Fig and stamped the corner flourish in each visible corner of each square,

Step 4. I finished off my pattern by adding a little square into the centre where each square met with Lemon Lime Twist. This really made the project “pop” as this is a bright colour.

To make the greetings panel I lined the squarish shaped dies on the bigshot:

As you can see from the close up of the finished panel below the inner die only creates a partial cut, giving even more options with these dies. The circle was stamped with a Tranquil Tide greeting and a Lemon Lime Twist boarder, both from the same stamp set. The circle was then punched out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch and its fits exactly in the centre of the cut die shape.

Finally here is the finished card:
