Sweet as a Peach Pocket Card


Hi!  Thanks for swinging by my blog.  If you watched my YouTube video on making this card, you know it is a pocket card based on a card I made for a card class several years ago.  (You can see the original card in my video...there's a link at the bottom of this post)

Pale Papaya Card Base ~ 4-1/4" x 11", score at 1-1/4" and 5-1/2"
You're a Peach Designer Series Paper ~ 4" x 3-1/4" and 4" x 1"
Balmy Blue Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Basic White Cardstock ~ scraps for the peach, leaves and flower

  • Fold the Card Base on the scored lines.  Be sure to fold the top portion out, not in. 
  • Glue the dotted DSP on the bottom part of the Card Base, the top of the DSP should be hidden by the flap.  
  • Glue the smaller strip of DSP to the flap on the Card Base. 
  • Tie the ribbon around the card and tie in front, as shown.  OR, you can follow the instructions in the video and cut your Balmy Blue CS a little narrower. 
  • Stamp the peach, leaves and flower on the Basic White CS.
  • Stamp 'Happy Birthday' on the top of the Balmy Blue CS, leaving room for the flower.  
  • Put the peach together, using a Liquid Glue, then attach it to the flap on the the Card Base with Stampin' Dimensionals.  
  • Glue the flower to the Balmy Blue CS, as shown.  OPTIONAL: add a 2021-2023 In Color Jewel to the center of the flower. 

Stamp a peach on the front of the envelope (as shown in the photo below). 
Cut a piece of the DSP to 2-1/4" x 6", then glue it to the envelope flap and use Paper Snips to trim off the excess.
