Today I wanted to share with you three cards I made with the new Eastern Beauty Bundle. I really challenged myself with these cards because Whisper White or Crumb Cake are my default base colours and I don’t usually feel as comfortable with Very Vanilla, however I really love these colour combinations. And the new Very Vanilla notecards make card making quick and easy because there’s no pre-cutting of card stock required by you.
This first card combines 2 of the new in colours: Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist and I’ve used some of the smaller stamps from the Eastern Beauty stamp set to create the diagonal pattern. The beautiful Eastern Palace Specially DSP is used on the front of the card as well as to make the matching envelope.
My second card teams up Lemon Lime Twist with Dapper Denim. It’s amazing how beautiful Lemon Lime Twist looks with so many other colours. It is such a vibrant colour but it actually works like a neutral, combining easily with such a wide range of colours.
Even though I’m more of a silver girl than a gold girl, I think this card is my favourite of the 3 cards. These Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and the stunning Gold DSP really pop on this card and gold and purple as such an elegant and timeless colour combination!
Even though I’ve use the matching DSP for these cards, the Eastern Beauty Bundle would work equally well using many other DSPs and ink colours. In fact, as soon as I get my hands on my new DSP this week I am going to try this design with the Foil Frenzy DSP and the matching inks.
What DSP would you use if you were gong to CASE this design and give it a fresh new look?
