You're a Peach Fun-Fold Card

I was born and raised in Georgia so have always been a Georgia Peach.  I was excited to see Stampin' Up! had the You're A Peach suite (page 60 in the catalog) and it was on my wish list immediately!  I love the pretty papers that Stampin' Up! has created for us.

Here is the card I made:

And here are the directions:

 

Supplies:

  • Stamp SetsSweet As A Peach  (155050); Artistically Inked (154542}
  • Card Stock --  Basic White (159276); Old Olive (100702)
  • Stamp Pads – Calypso Coral 147101); Old Olive (147090)
  • Misc. – You’re a Peach (DSP)  (155686); Scalloped Contours Dies (155560); Dimensionals (104430); Stampin’ Seal+ (149699); Bone Folder (102300)

           

Measurements:  

  • Old Olive:       4 1/4” x 11”                3” x 5 1/2”        3” x 4”
  • Basic White:  3” x 4”       2” x 3 ¼”
  • DSP:                           4” x 12”           5 3/4” x 2 3/8” (for envelope flap); 2 ¾” x 4 ¾” of matching paper (can be the same as the paper used or something contrasting—I used the back of another sheet from the same DSP pack)

           

Instructions:

  1. Start by cutting your DSP.  Decide if it has a true up/down and cut with it so that it is up on the long side.  You’ll cut two 2 ½” x 4” and one 4” x 5 ¼”.  Keep them lined up in order if you want them to match on the front of your card.
  2. Score your cardstock.  Take the 4 ¼” x 11” piece and score at 2 ¾” and 5 ½”.  Take the 3” x 5 ½” piece and score at ½”.  The score lines need to be very crisp.  Use a bone folder to do this.
  3. Using the adhesive of your choice, begin putting the small pieces of DSP on your large cardstock lining them up. 
  4. Adhere the small ½” of the scored 3” x 5 ½” piece of old olive by folding that ½” and attach to the large piece of DSP so that it creates a flap extending out from the card.  Adhere that large piece of DSP lining it up with the previous two pieces. 
  5. Fold the 2 ¾” score mark back so it folds over the other pieces.
  6. Attach the contrasting DSP to the front of the flap. 
  7. Die cut the 3” x 4” Old Olive and Basic White piece using the third die.  Die cut the smallest Basic White piece using the second die from the inside.
  8. Stamp the sentiment (Thanks) on the larger smaller Basic White piece using Calypso Coral ink.  Attach to the Old Olive piece using Seal+ and then attach both pieces to the card front flap
  9. Stamp the inside sentiment in Old Olive and Calypso Coral and attach to the inside of the card so that it is hidden behind the flap
  10. Take the small piece of DSP and adhere to the flap of the envelope and cut to fit.

I have also done a One Sheet Wonder using the same papers and will share those later.  Enjoy!

Also starting on June 1 are new kits!  Stampin' Up! has decided to add kits to the online store throughout the year instead of putting them in the catalogs.  These initial kits are based on the most popular past Paper Pumpkin kits but with some new stamps and images.  These kits are designed for quick and easy cards and they are great for the beginner stamper and card maker.  Don't have a lot of space for loads of stamping supplies?  Kits can help you there!  These are great for gifts--birthdays, graduation, Christmas, and just because!  Think these are challenging enough for you?  Let me show you how to upgrade your kits in the weeks to come!  Once kits sell out, new kits will replace them.  There will be no backorders on these kits--once they are sold out, they are gone!  Order your kits beginning June 1 here

Update on My Treatment

I thought I'd give you an update on my treatment.   I'm all done with radiation!  YAY!!!! I have only a few radiation burns to deal with but they are healing.

I had a squamous cell carcinoa removed from my lower leg on May 12.  It required a skin graft to cover it because the skin is so thin down around my lower shin.  I had to keep my leg elevated for 2 weeks (23 1/2 hours a day!) so no crafting.  I got my stitches out today so I am able to act more normally.  It feels strange to have my leg down now!

We are getting ready to go to the beach on our yearly beach trip so I am frantically trying to get everything packed up in just a couple of days time.  Normally, I take a week or two to get it all together.
