Eastern Birthday

September 25, 2018

Today’s card uses a template that was shared by Julie Burt on a Demonstrator only Facebook page.  Unfortunately Julie does not have a blog or facebook page at this stage, but when she does I will be sure to let you know.  I followed Julie’s template to cut Thick Whisper White card to create the card base and added Smoky Slate card to each panel.  The main panel is decorated with a large motif from the retired Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers.  I also used another of the stickers on Melon Mambo card and cut it out using the co-ordinating Eastern Medallions Thinlits DiesThe Sticker is attached to Whisper white card with the Melon Mambo flower in the centre.  The middle panel on the card has a medallion cut from Melon Mambo card using the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies with a retired Eastern Gold Vinyl Sticker in the centre.  I decorated four of the remaining small panels by cutting Whisper White card using the two smallest circles in the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies.  Once the Whisper White card is attached to the Smoky Slate card, it is really quite pretty.  The last two small panels have been stamped with a small star image from the Eastern Beauty stamp set using Melon Mambo ink.  The last large panel has the largest medallion from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies cut from Melon Mambo card.  To release this image and create a single piece, I cut around the medallion using one of the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set onto Whisper White card using Melon Mambo ink and cut out the greeting using the die in the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies.  The greeting is attached to the centre of the Melon Mambo medallion.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the image from the Eastern Beauty stamp set using Melon Mambo ink.  I love the way this card stands up like a tri-shutter card but it has that cute little closed card on the left, so you can write a message.  The card is a little oversized so you will have to create your own envelope but that is easy using the Envelope Punch Board.  So thank you once again Julie for your wonderful template.

This card is for a lovely friend who is celebrating her birthday today.  Happy Birthday Gloria.   She loves this stamp set, so although I have used some retired product on this card, I know that she will love it.

Bye for now,
