Peach Pear Blossom

Sorry for the delay in posting. I meant to get this up yesterday but was having some technical difficulties and then it was time to go to work. Today I have to share with you the first card from the June Make and Take. This card was inspired by a card created by Mindy Backes. Here is the card we made:

Stamps: Ornate Blossom, Four Frames, Because I Care
Cardstock: Peach Parfait, Whisper White
DSP: Greenhouse Gala (retired)
Ink: Pear Pizzaz, Peach Parfait
Accessories: Tasteful Trim Die, Decorative Label Punch, Sponge Dauber, Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents, Two Way Glue Pen, Stampin’ Dimensionals

The card base is Peach Parfait cardstock cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. Next I cut a piece of Greenhouse Gala DSP (retired) 2 ½” x 4” and adhered it to the bottom of the card front. Then the Bold Blossom image was inked up with Peach Parfait and stamped in the middle left hand side just above the DSP.

A piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut 1” x 4 ¼” and was run through the Tasteful Trim Die to get the large scallops. The edges of the scallops were sponged with Pear Pizzaz ink and the scallops were adhered to the card front just above the DSP. Then a piece of Peach Parfait cardstock was cut at ½” x 4 ¼” and was run through the Tasteful Trim die to get the zig-zag or ric-rac piece. This was adhered over the seam of the Whisper White cardstock and the DSP using a Two-Way Glue Pen.

Next the image from Four Frames was stamped in Pear Pizzaz ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. The greeting from Because I Care (retired) was stamped in Peach Parfait ink. Then the label was punched out with the Decorative Label punch. Three Basic Rhinestone Jewel Accents were added under the greeting and the label was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks Mindy for the inspiration! You can see Mindy’s card HERE and her blog HERE. Come back later today to see the second card from the June Make and Take!
