Month of May Eastern Palace Series - Project #2

Well I'm back today with Project #2 in my Month of May Eastern Palace Series.   Today's project is a top fold card featuring stickers from the Eastern Gold Sticker pack.

The Eastern Gold Sticker Packs come with four sheets of stickers.  There are two each of these designs.

The Designer Paper Specialty Pack is simply stunning.  There are 12 sheets of beautifully designed papers including two one sided gold embossed sheets. Let me just say they are all stunning! 

I kept the inside of the card simple and did not add a sentiment only the small flower which was stamped in Dapper Denim.  Since it's a "friendship card", leaving off a sentiment allows for personal writing space for a note.
Stamp Set: Eastern Beauty
Card Stock:  Whisper White, Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide 
DSP:  Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper
Ink:  Fresh Fig
Accessories: Big Shot, Paper Trimmer, Stylish Stems Thinlet Dies, Eastern Medallion Thinlet Dies, Stitched Shapes Thinlet Dies, Basic Pearls, Eastern Gold Stickers, Sponge Dauber, Aqua Painter, Dimmensionals, Tom Bow Glue, Acryllic Blocks 
The gold scalloped design along the top of the banner and the gold overlay on the flower are actually two of the designs from  the Eastern Gold Stickers pack.  You simply peel them off and apply them to your design. I've stamped the beautifully written sentiment in Fresh Fig ink and added 3 pearls in varying sizes to the above the sentiment.  The Whisper White circle was cut out with the largest of the Stitched Shapes Thinlet dies.

I stamped the flower on Whisper White card stock with Fresh Fig ink and then coloured the inside of the image with an Aqua Painter, drawing the ink from the edges. The flower was cut out with Die #11. The gold flower sticker fitted  over top of the die cut.  I sponged around the edges with Fresh Fig ink to reduce the amount of white edging that was visible.  The small Fresh Fig flower for the center was cut out with Die #14.  Another gold sticker was added to the center and finished off with a small Basic Pearl.  I used the two leaf dies from the Stylish Stems (R) Thinlet Dies to cut the Tranquil Tide leaves.  The floral piece was attached to the banner with dimensionals and the leaves were adhered to the banner and Whisper White circle with Tom Bow glue.


Well that's it for today's project.  I hope you liked this simple yet elegant card and if so you'll leave me a comment. I'd love to have your feedback.  

Happy Stamping!
