Welcome, friends! It's just me again with EVEN MORE inspiration using the new Destination: Summer collection from The Greetery ! I can't seem to stop using all of these amazing new products! As you can see, I've got a peach themed card using so many of the fabulous peachy products!
I decided to use the Create-a-Crate elements on a card , which makes this die collection even more versatile! Did you see how Betsy used the boards to create a shiplap background? Genius! I can't wait to give that a try!
The crate for the card uses two of the die cut board pieces which have been embossed with the wood grain texture as well as the "Picked Fresh" detail. I love it so much...it adds just the right amount of charm!
I can't seem to stop with the partially stamped Windowpane Plaid background paired with some additional ink blending to the center! I just love the "glow" that it adds to the background!
I stamped the peaches in two different color combinations; Peach Fuzz and Apricot for the lighter peach and Apricot and Passion Fruit for the darker peach. I stamped all of the leaves and blossoms as well so that I would have a lot of options when it came time for assembly.
I tucked the peaches into the crate using foam squares and added a few to the bottom of the crate as well. You can really see the wood grain and Picked Fresh detail well on this particular photo.
I stamped the "JUST" portion of the sentiment onto the card using brown ink leaving just enough room to add in the "Peachy" portion of the sentiment. This is probably my favorite detail of the card because of the ombre ink blending and Crystal Glaze over the top!
I die cut the word twice from white cardstock, glued it together, and then used Apricot and Passion Fruit inks to blend into the word. I used additional liquid glue to adhere it to the shadow portion that is die cut using a sheer vellum.
Once that was done, I went ahead and carefully added the Nuvo Crystal Glaze over the top. Once it dried, I added tiny strips of foam tape to the back of the letters and adhered it to the card front.
I added a few sparkling clear sequins for a juicy looking detail. The entire panel is added to a top folding Melon Berry A2 card base using ScorTape. The card base has just a touch of Passion Fruit ink around the corners for additional detail and contrast. I used a Color Spritzing tool and a peachy marker to add some ink splatter here and there.
I'm having so much fun with all of these summertime stamps/dies! Thanks for fluttering by!
