To a Sweet Friend, Have a Peachy Day!

I’m not ashamed to tell you I spent a delightful leisurely Saturday morning in PaperCraft Therapy with the Sweet As A Peach Bundle. When I first saw the beautiful You’re a Peach Suite in the ’21 Annual Catalog (pdf), I could not WAIT to get my hands on it. The new Pale Papaya In-Color looks like an actual peach with Calypso Coral daubed on it. And the Designer Series Paper in this Suite is too too cute. With dots, and stripes and well, of course peaches. There’s nothing like fresh Georgia peaches in June! Papier Vampir provided the inspiration for this beautiful, heartfelt card.

You’re As Sweet As a Peach

I have really been digging seeing black & white with a pop of color. I couldn’t wait to use up the last of my True Love Designer Series Paper for this pretty Thank You Card. Little strips of the black & white paper accented with pops of Pale Papaya and of course, PEACHES! So fun!

    1. Two peaches in Pale Papaya ink, with Calypso Coral ink sponge daubed on 1/2.
    2. Three flowers (one stamp) in Pale Papaya ink with Calypso Coral centers.
    3. Two peach stems in Pear Pizzaz ink
    4. Leaves (one stamp) in Pear Pizzaz ink.
  6. Die cut the peaches, flowers, stems and leaves.
  7. Stamp your Sentiment on Basic White Scrap and cut to size.
  8. Use Tear & Tape to attach a piece of Ribbon to the Decorative Strips layer, and then arrange your Sentiment, peaches, flowers, stems and leaves. Once you have them where you want them, adhere to the page. I used a variety of Stampin’ Dimenionals and Stampin’ Seal+.
  9. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Decorative Strips Layer to the Basic Black Background.
  10. Sprinkle on some pearls!!
  11. Stamp and attach your Inside Layer.
