Beginning to look a little like Christmas with the Stampin' Up! Eastern Medallions


The Eastern Palace Bundle offer is drawing to a close. So I have stepped out of my comfort zone to challenge myself using it to create a Christmas Card.
With so many options I often find I get a bit flabbergasted so I restricted my colour pallet and my time.
Who can spend hours creating and still not finish a project? I was finding that was me so moving forward I have now put boundaries in place to help.
 
So this is my Christmas card for today - my brain is now buzzing but I have put those buzzes on paper to follow up later.
 


I love the new Tranquil Tide In Colour (just between us my favourite colour has always been green - maybe its to with the red hair?). Tranquil Tide goes so well with Real Red for Christmas, add a little Crushed Curry and you to can make this card.



I am thinking that I love clusters so this card highlights a corner cluster. The gold medallion under the red - lets call it a flower because that's what I see here, was also cut with the petal style framelit but they are not popped up. This close up shows loads of sparkle and I'm impressed I finally got a good photo of Wink of Stella!


Follow the theme through to the inside of the card and envelope - to me it completes the card.

 
I really enjoyed creating this card and have added it to my growing stash of Christmas Cards - I am going to have a lovely stash this year and it will be the first time I send different Christmas cards to everyone.
 
Till next time -

  1. Absolutely love this card, Courtenay! The composition is wonderful and the way you've used the die cuts to create a festive card is genius!
