It seems my weekend was all about food…a crab fest, cupcakes, and peaches! Yesterday my daughter and I went to the annual Peach Festival in town. There’s nothing like fresh fruit when it’s in season…sweet and delicious!
Today’s card is just peachy! I made it for a friend who could use a little pick me up. I thought I’d drop it off with some fresh peaches to brighten her day.
The DSP is from a Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper and it’s just as sweet as those peaches!
This is another one of those “formula” cards that’s quick & easy to put together. I cut my card base 4 1/4 x 11 and scored it at 5 1/2. The DSP layer measures 3 1/2 x 5 with a mat that’s just 1/8 larger at 3 5/8 x 5 1/8. I like the way the ribbon looks like it is “hugging” the card. (At least that’s what I imagined and wanted to convey!) The sentiment is cut from the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies. I have used the dies in this set a lot and find they are very versatile. I love that I can snip them out (like I did on this card) or just die cut the shape and layer it with paper behind it.
My card wouldn’t be complete without an envelope to coordinate.
I goes great with the basket of peaches. You can really see how realistic the Designer Series Paper looks!
I also needed a thank you card so while I had my paper out I just cut for two! (I do that a lot!) I changed it up a bit and used Peekaboo Peach cardstock and ribbon instead of Tranquil Tide. I also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits to layer the sentiment.
I’m glad I came home with a lot of peaches yesterday because I seem to be giving them away faster than I can make peach cobbler! Here’s both cards side by side. Do you have a preference?
