Each Sunday I post a card sketch along with a card I created using the sketch. Sketches often help get my creativity fired up.
Sketches are open to interpretation. You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout, using a square where there is a square, or you can change it to a be a circle, or oval or flower etc. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal.
- Top Fold (4 1/4" x 11") Side Fold (5 1/2" 8 1/2")
- Strip on the left: 1 1/4" x 5 1/2"
- Rectangle piece: 2 1/2" x 4"
- The petal flower medallion on my card is about 3"
This card was created using some new products featured in the New 2017-2018 Catalog that will soon be available. You are going to see this set all over pinterest and will want to get your hands on it. The good news is you don't have to wait until June 1 when the catalog goes live. You can get the items in the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle now. Don't buy it just because it is new - buy it because it will add so much to your stamping enjoyment.
The card base is one of the new 2017-2019 In-Colors called Tranquil Tide. The strip of patterned paper and the Very Vanilla and Gold Foil paper are from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper package.
You might recognize the Natural Trim Ribbon it is carried over into the new catalog. The Gold Tassel is from the Eastern Palace Suite and will be available individually June 1. The tassels are very fun and come in three colors; Gold - Fresh Fig - Tranquil Tide.
The flower medallion is cut out using the Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot. I always think what an amazing value dies are. You get 14 different dies in this set and that figures out to only $2.35 per die.
I have come down with the spring crud that many are talking about! I thought I had been spared but it has hit hard. What did I expect after kissing up my little grandchildren who have all had it. Hoping to feel better real soon so I can stamp up a storm of new samples using some amazing new products. HUGS and hope the crud misses you!
