Sweat As A Peach Gift Card Holder

Welcome!  I have a special today... a Free downloadable PDF featuring my Sweet as a Peach Gift Card Holder and Bonus Card.

I am really enjoying using this stamp and die bundle.  So fun and the Designer Series Paper is really pretty.  

You can get the whole Suite Collection too, which includes cute little jam jars. 

A few weeks ago I did my Wednesday night Facebook Live and made these two projects.  You can view that Here.  So today, I am sharing a Free PDF tutorial with all the instructions and dimensions.  I hope you use this to recreate the projects or adapts with other items you may have!  Enjoy.

Forever Fern Multi-Layered Panel Card

Hi there... thanks for joining me for my Forever Fern Multi-Layered Panel Card.  I really enjoy having multiple layers on my cards and sneaking in an extra color or accent color.  Or sometimes putting in a color that you thought would never coordinate.  

S0, the Forever Fern Suite includes this Designer Series Paper called Forever Greenery.  When I first saw it, I was like "mah.... that's a lot of green". But as usual, when I started working with it, I really like it.  I have a whole slew of projects to share with you so make sure you sign up for my blog notifications. 

Here's today's project:

Product List



I love black and white cards.  And this one is so simple and elegant.  If you have not seen the Detailed Bands Dies yet, check them out by clicking on the link or look below in the list of products I used to make this card.  The Detailed Bands Dies is one of my most favorite die sets in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!

Images and words (minus the Happy Birthday) are from a lovely set called Very Versailles. This set is right up my alley... Now the branches of leaves may look like they are not inked well, but they are.  The image is one of Stampin' Up! DistINKtive stamps; stamps made a special way to give a realistic look.  I can't wait to try with other ink colors. 

The Happy Birthday is from the stamp set called Here's a Card.  If you are looking for a "word" stamp set, this may the one you should order


I have to laugh at myself with the inside of the card.  Can you see why? 

As I always say in my classes.... well, it IS handmade!


I do want to give credit as I CASED (copy and share everything) this project from a card swap I participated in.  Joanna Jones, fellow demonstrator from Oklahoma, made the below card. My sample, I changed the sentiment and added rhinestones and an inside.  Her card is so pretty so I had to share.

Butterfly Wishes Distinktive Stamp Set


There is just a tiny sneak of the New Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper hiding in this card.  This designer paper is amazingly beautiful.  I cannot wait to share more of it with you.  

This is a standard A2 card with Crumb Cake card stock as the base, cut 11 x 4-1/4"

The New 2019-2021 In-Color Purple Posy makes the mat layer (5-1/4 x 4") and is embossed with the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. 

Card center:  Crumb Cake card stock is 2-3/4 x 4"

Card center:  Very Vanilla is 2-1/2 x 3-3/4"

I love how well everything coordinates especially the Purple Posy card stock and the New Scalloped Linen ribbon
