Eastern Palace Suite and Stitched Shapes Framelits

The Eastern Palace Suite is the epitome of ornateness. The dies are so intricate and the number of different combinations for using them is simply mind boggling!

For today's card, I decided to limit the colors and let the dies shine through with the help of a little gold foil!

I started by cutting a card base of 4.75 x 6" from the new Thick Very Vanilla Card Stock. I then cut two mattes–one from Gold Foil and one also from the Thick Very Vanilla.

The Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder was used to emboss the Very Vanilla Matte and then it was adhered to the gold matte using liquid adhesive.

I used the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut a piece of Gold Foil. Using the Eastern Medallions Thinlits, I used a combination of dies #3 and #5 to cut a medallion from Thick Very Vanilla. Liquid glue was used to adhere these. Be sure to check my Numbered Die Sets blog page (located at the top of my blog) to see which dies I am using.

Die #8 was used to cut a piece of the Gold Foil. After the sentiment was stamped in Basic Black on Thick Very Vanilla, it was die cut with the #1 Stitched Circle die. These two pieces were adhered with liquid glue and then stacked onto the other two die cuts using Dimensionals. One of the gold tassels was sandwiched between them.

Dimensionals were used to adhere the set of die cuts to the hexagon matte and then the whole thing was adhered to the card front.

To add a little touch of gold to the inside of the card, one of the gold vinyl stickers from the Eastern Palace Bundle was adhered down the right side.
