Celebrating You, You're a Peach, Thinking of You Card, 2022 Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalog

It must be the luck of the Irish! I've been finding some fun card samples using larger pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP). A part of my quest to use up DSP this year. I found this card here

To make this card I took a half-sheet of Balmy Blue card stock that was cut on the short side so it measured 4-1/4" x 11". This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and textured it using the "Ornate Floral" embossing folder. I glued that to the front of the card. I prefer glue here because of the texture. I want to make sure there's enough contact to stick to the card stock.

I cut the DSP from the "You're a Peach" 12" x 12" package. I did not order the bundle that goes with this DSP. I just loved the paper and hoped I could work with it and so far so good!  I cut the DSP with peaches on it at 5-1/4" x 3".  I also cut the blue striped strip from the same package. It was cut at 5-1/4" x 1/2".  I taped the strip to the left side of the larger piece of DSP.  Then I glued it on top of the Basic White textured card stock.

I die cut the tags from the "Tailor Made Tags" dies. I used the smallest and second smallest tags that had straight angles on the corner areas. The other tags have a concave circle in that same area.  I used the larger of the two tag dies to cut the white dotted peach (Calypso Coral) piece of DSP and the smaller cut a piece of Basic White card stock. After cutting, the smaller piece was textured. I used the "Painted Texture" folder. 

I took some Balmy Blue ribbon (retired but the only Balmy Blue ribbon I had) and cut four 12" pieces. I threaded them through the holes in the tags and tied a bow. I trimmed the ends. Then I glued the tags together so they wouldn't move. Then they were glued to the front of the card.

The words were stamped using the "Celebrating You" set on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock and black Memento ink. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. Then I punched out the scalloped edge using a scrap piece of Balmy Blue card stock. I taped the two pieces together and set them in place using glue.

I found some enamel dots that looked like they matched close enough and I set them in place on the front of the card.  It's nice not stressing about not having the accessories I need. I am just using what I have. For those of you who are demonstrators you know all about switching products out to use what is current!  I use current items when I have them. I have so many here that I need to use up.

This was a very fun and easy card to make. It's got a few pieces to it but SO worth it. It went together quickly and turned out nice. I like it!!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to see today's thinking of you card,
