Old meets New with a Dapper Denim Thank You

By | May 25, 2017

Happy Thursday, one more day to go until the weekend. For me it’s the last day of work this week, I’m on vacation tomorrow, just like a lot of other people. They showed the morning traffic on the news today and more cars were outbound than inbound to the city, have a feeling quite a few people are starting their weekend early.

Last night I was looking through the new Annual Catalog that starts June 1st and a card caught my eye, it was using one of the Thinlits from the new Eastern Medallion Thinlits set (Eastern Palace Premier Bundle) and I thought I would recreate with a little twist.

The card used two different colored card stocks along with designer series paper, I decided to use the Eastern Beauty stamp set (from the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle) to create my own background paper. I start with a card base of Dapper Denim to match the 2″ x 4 7/8″ strip of designer series paper from the new Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack*. Next I used a piece of Whisper White 2″ x 4 1/2″ and using Dapper Denim ink, stamped images from the Eastern Beauty stamp set. The stamped Whisper White is attached directly to the card base at a slight angle and the designer paper is backed with Stampin’ Dimensionals and slightly angled the opposite direction. Next is a 3/4″ thick banner of the new In-Color Lemon Lime Twist*, which also has Stampin’ Dimensionals behind it.

When die cutting the medallion I added the largest circle from the Layering Circle Framelits to cut an entire circle, next I stamped Thank you and the flowers and adhered to the banner with liquid glue.  Using this same design you could use ribbon in place of the banner, change the orientation of the banner to vertical, emboss the card base or even one of the paper layers – there are so many possibilities.

Items with a * are available June 1st 10am mountain time when the new catalog goes live.  Eastern Palace Bundles are only available until May 31, 2017.
