To show the versatility of this set, I thought I might try a new card in a box fold that is a larger square size. It folds flat and fits in a 15 x 15 cm envelope, that you could custom make and would look great using the gorgeous designer series paper in this suite.
The additional items are, Very Vanilla cardstock to coordinate with the patterned paper, vellum, gold emboss and the "Remarkable You" stamp set that's being carried over to the new catalogue yay!
The floral motifs on both the Eastern Palace designer series paper and the gold vinyl stickers became the inspiration on this card. To compliment this, I have used the gorgeous lotus flower from Remarkable You set. They are a perfect pairing as the petals reflect the stylised die cut floral of the Eastern Medallions thinlits dies.
Gold and Tranquil Tide are the main colours to keep with the designer series paper and the gold vinyl stickers.
The sentiment has been gold heat embossed on vellum and die cut out using the Layering Circles framelits dies.
The lotus has also been gold heat embossed on Very Vanilla cardstock. I was tempted to colour them in but wanted to keep to the same colours of gold and green of the papers used.
The back has also been decorated to have space to write a personal greeting. It's clean and simple and the partial die cutting of the flower gives another way to use the dies.
I hope you enjoyed and found inspiration. The Eastern Palace suite is truly versatile and can create so many wonderful variations using the intricate dies. It also coordinates perfectly with the Layering Circles framelits dies allowing far greater creativity and makes good use of the sets. I was pleased how it all turned out, love the Eastern inspired feel of the suite. Making a card in a box allows so much creativity and a unique representation of the suite.
