This week’s Paper Craft Crew challengePCC239 is a theme – a Metallic Embellishments challenge!
I decided that this would be a great chance for me to jump into my preorder of the Eastern Palace Suite! You’re going to love this suite of products.
Even though I can’t share pictures of the products or stamp set in their cases, I can share my finished card! I can also tell you which products I used. I know you’ll want the bundle.
I love the elegance of this stamp set, and the opulence of the colours.
My colours are very simple for this card; Very Vanilla, Tranquil Tide (new In Colour) and Gold.
The Metallic Embellishments Challenge was met using the new Gold Tassel, the Eastern Gold Vinyl Sticker (at the bottom of the card and in the middle of the die cut) and the Gold Sequins. Although some may not consider it an embellishment, I also heat embossed using Gold Embossing Powder on the die cut medallion. The stamp set is called Eastern Beauty. I stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink. It was easy to do – it’s already curved for use!
The centre medallion from the Easter Medallion Thinlits Dies partially die cuts the middle ‘petals’. You can see the detail in this next picture.
And in this picture.
The beautiful gold patterned paper is new; it’s from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.
You will be able to order the Eastern Palace Suite in 2 special bundles, on May 1st. There’s information about it in my post HERE. In the meantime, if you like the current size of the Sequin Trim in Gold (or the other currently available colours) you’ll want to order it NOW, as it’s on the Retiring List. There will be sequin trim available in the new catalogue, but in a different (smaller) size.
Now it’s your turn to join our Metallic Embellishments Challenge! Check out what the rest of the Design Team have created on the BLOG HERE. Then check out your stash of embellishments and join the fun 🙂 I’ll be watching for you!
