At first I wasn't sure about this bundle, but once you get started, it all just flows. I was pleasantly surprise just how well the whole bundle works together. The dies alone are just fabulous and there are so many ways and combinations that they can be used.
The cards I'm featuring, is to show another way that the Eastern Medallions thinlits dies can be used together with our current Layering Circles framelits dies - they fit like a glove.
Not only can you create a window card front that allows you to see inside, you can also die cut another circle and use vellum or dazzling diamonds glimmer paper for added interest and makes the medallions pop as per my example. By die cutting several pieces you can build height and add dimension to the medallions.
The all inclusive Eastern Palace suite with the Eastern Beauty bundle, designer series paper, mini tassels, gold vinyl stickers are just amazing and can mix and match to create an endless array of variations. I have kept the card relatively monochromatic or just kept the similar colours to the dsp used.
The cardstock has been ink blended with the coordinating Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide inks to intensify and add contrast.
I love how everything coordinates and the ink blending really adds a nice tone to these cards and perfect for the white heat embossed sentiments. The mini tassels really adds to the Eastern decorative touch.
