Stampin' Up! Sweet as a Peach Birthday Card

Hi there!  Today's card is inspired by Challenge 443 from Less Is More.  This is a great sketch that immediately made me think of the new Stampin' Up! set, Sweet as a Peach.  

Balmy Blue Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
DSP ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Basic White CS ~ scraps and 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)

1.  Stamp the peach and leaves on Basic White CS
2.  Using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies cut out a rectangle in the upper right corner of your DSP.  
The rectangle on this card measures approx. 1-3/4" x 2".  To get the rectangle this size, instead of running the die all the way through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, I only ran it part of the way through.  Then, I took it out and adjusted the die to the location that I wanted it.  It's easy with these stitched dies to feel when the die is lined up nicely with the sides that have already been cut.  Then, run the other side through.  
3.  Use the coordinating Peach Dies to cut out the peach and leaves. 
4.  Attach the DSP to the front of the card base. 
5.  Stamp the sentiment inside the rectangle.  I used my Stamparatus to make sure it all lined up before stamping, but you can also just use a clear block. 
6.  Attach the leaves to the peach with Liquid Glue.  Then attach the peach and leaves to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

For the inside, stamp the leaves, then the flowers.  I found that it was easier to get my placement correct when I stamped them in this order.

I hope you enjoyed this card!  Please contact me if you have any questions or to request a catalog (if you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and live in the USA).
