Eastern Beauty Gatefold Card

Earlier this week I posted a card made with the Eastern Beauty stamp set and promised to share some more cards to show how versatile this stamp set is.  I have used most of the products from the Eastern Palace Suite (which can be found on pages 18 and 19 of the 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalog; and  also showcased 4 of the 5 new ‘in-colors’ 

Gatefold Card

Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Fresh Fig Card ~ scored @ 2 1/8 and

Layer 1: 2 pieces 5 1/4 x 1 7/8 Very Vanilla Card

Insert: 5 1/4 x 4 Very Vanilla Card

Ink Colors: Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist.

The center medallion is cut from Fresh Fig card ~ while the die will cut out the ‘fretwork’ you will need to trim the ‘pointy’ pieces to separate it from the main piece of card, this is very easy to do with a pair of sharp paper snips.  The greeting is cut with a 1″ circle punch, layered onto 1 1/4″ circle of gold glimmer paper.  The tassel is held in place with a glue dot tucked away underneath the greeting so that it dangles down decoratively.

When stamping the two front panels, stick them together side by side with some washi tape on the back, you can then stamp the design and everything will match up when you attach them to the front panels of the base card,

This card uses the same medallion dies but this time it has been cut into the card front then backed with 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 Berry Burst card. The greeting comes from the Eastern Beauty stamp set and I just love the way it curves around the medallion.
