So, a couple months ago, I volunteered to put together the Make-n-Take for our Stampin’ Up upline meeting. This is where a bunch of us demonstrators with the gal that we signed up under and talk and learn and, of course, stamp. I had just received my Eastern Palace Bundle, so I figured I could use that.
Here’s a blurry shot of the card.. I didn’t take a clear one, I guess!
While the Designer Series Paper in this suite is very beautiful, I didn’t want to use it all my first time out. The story of my life, right! Anyway… I used two of the images from the stamp set (Eastern Beauty – #143675) to create my own tone-on-tone DSP by stamping in Fresh Fig on Fresh Fig cardstock.
The thinlits that come with the Eastern Palace Bundle (Eastern Medallions Thinlits – #143725) are meant to be stacked together to create wonderful medallions. But, they also do not cut things out completely, so I paired the medallion with 3″ circle from the Layering Circle die set. I used washi tape to hold them together so they wouldn’t slide.
For the sentiment, I embossed one of the circles from the stamp set using the gold powder. I then used the 2″ circle from the Layering Circle dies to cut it out. It is very close to the edge, so you may want to secure it in place using washi as well.
Just a tip – I actually ran them both through the Big Shot at the same time 🙂
And, just in case you care… Here is what it looked like all neatly organized and ready to be packed up!
The ladies all enjoyed making it. And, I will say, I had an absolute blast chit-chatting with them all was they made the cards. I love our monthly meetings!
