Welcome! I hope you enjoy this FREE card making class. We will be creating two fabulous cards with the Sweet as a Peach Bundle from Stampin’ Up! It’s a super cute 20-piece photopolymer stamp set with a 17-piece die set. Join me to learn how to achieve a very realistic image and an awesome fancy fold.

Let’s start things off with a traditional fold thank you card. I love the font in this set. It’s a fun crisp script.

Because I embossed the You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper with the Bark 3D embossing folder, I was able to create lots of texture on the base layer. One of the best parts about that, the DSP is currently on sale.

Doesn’t my peach look realistic? That’s really to achieve by using two colors of ink in the stamping process.

By adding a little Linen Thread and few Genial Gems it brought the design to the next level.

To achieve that very realistic look on the peaches, I inked up the stamp in Mango Melody first. Then with a sponge dauber, I added Calypso Coral ink. Once the image was die cut, I used a little more Mango Melody in the center with a dauber. Inking the edges in Calypso Coral eliminated the white edge on the die cut.
