Feeling Peachy?!?

Happy Tuesday!

This week, so far, seems like a pastel week because today's' card is another pastel this time peach.  Now as one of my lovely commentators said last time I posted peach (Can't remember who I am crap at names) its nice to see a different colour I hope you like this one.

This card is made with the same Core'dinations paper as my last peachy effort.  This time I embossed and sanded the backing before framing it and mounting it onto a sheet of white cardstock.  The central element is all cut with a Spellbinders Gold elements die ( i forget which one!) die, as this is a gold elements die I added gold ink to the raised areas before cutting.  This makes the debossed areas stand out and adds a lovely shine to the card.

The central sentiment is an oval die cut, inked and stamped with the Whimsey stamp sentient a quote from one of my favourite authors look closely to find out who lol)

I have foam mounted this onto two of the centre dies from Spellbinders A2 filigree delight which adds some interest to the panel.  Finally I added a few pearls and a simple bow made with organza ribbon sent to me by Mrs Duck!



  1. Stunning John, so elegant :) xx

  2. Hola John
    I don't normally do peach but you could change my mind with this as its absolutely fantastic. It is truly gorgeous. I wish I could make the organza look like that!
    Have a great day.

  3. Pretty card, though that Gold SP die doesn't really appeal to me. Usually I like asymmetric things, but this one not so much.

  4. Love the sentiment John, should probably be a crafter's mantra!! Sanding back the card really makes it blend with the cream and gold nicely, best wishes Jackie
