Eastern Palace Sneak Peek



I used he versamark resist technique for the background - yes, that's right, glossy cardstock! I am so happy that Stampin' Up! are bringing glossy cardstock back in the new Annual,Catalogue!

So the products I used on this cards are from the Eastern Palace Suite - I don't know if you can notice it but there is a little gold foil sticker in the middle of the flower.  I will make up a sample using a few more of the gold foil stickers and post on here.

The Easter Palace products will be available to order as of next week!
