Eastern Palace Suite FREE Tutorial: Card #1

Hi everyone,
I had so much fun creating some amazing cards for a special class and received such great feedback about this awesome Eastern Palace bundle I wanted to do something special to help anyone who is on the fence about taking advantage of this bundle before the sale is done May 31st.

We start the week with a beautiful card that looks complex, but comes together very nicely with pieces from the Eastern Palace Suite Bundle.
First I selected one of our beautiful new cardstock In-Color bases called Tranquil Tide.  I cut them 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 giving the perfect base A2 card and used the bone folder to create crisp creases right down the middle.
Next I cut out circles using our awesome Stitched Shape Framelits that will be available in our new catalog June 1st. Once cut I took the circle outline stamp from the Eastern Beauty stamp set, and used our Fresh Fig new In-Color ink to create beautiful rings around the outside of the circles.

Next I cut a sheet of the Eastern Palace Designer Series Speciality Paper (DSP) into sections to make the perfect card fronts for my card. If you cut these 4 x 5 1/4 you will have the perfect mat base and have very little left over from the one sheet. You can get 6 card fronts from just one sheet of DSP.
I then took these card fronts and adhered them to the card base and added a pretty gold sticker from the amazing new gold foil stickers in this bundle. The designs are amazing.

After this was all set I took one of the circle designs that is a two part sticker gold foil element, and added it to the center.  This sticker has two pieces so you can use it together or on separate projects.
To add a touch of bling to the card, and to take a "fab" card to "fabulous", I used the beautiful Gold Faceted Gems coming out in the new catalog.   

Once these were assembled I added stampin' dimensionals to the back of the circles, adhered them to the front of the card and added a cute Thinking of You sentiment with Basic Black Ink, our Crazy About You retiring stamp set, and the fun banner punch to give one end a look of a pennant. 

The finished product  

I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial and design.  Please stop back each day this week in the afternoon to check out a different design created using the amazing Eastern Bundle Suite supplies with a few add-on's.  Thank you and have a great day!
