You're A Peach DSP for Sketch #500 at FMS

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was inspired by a couple of things.  First the beautifully simply sketch from Linda Callahan at Freshly Made Sketches.  This sketch is super special because its # 500 - yes you read that correct - the Freshly Made Sketches design team has been providing inspiration for Ten Years!  Congratulations!   

Second, it's peach season here in Niagara Ontario Canada.  This easy layered card is terrific to make in multiples - humm say when giving away jars of peach jam ;)      

Click on either my card or the FMS images to go directly to their blog and soak in the inspiration!

As you may already know I'm a paper gal, I love all Designer Series Paper!  I don't even  own the Sweet As A Peach stamp set, but I have the paper - ha.  This sketch lends itself very well to using a little bit of DSP and pulling the coordinating colours from the paper to create a card.   I hope my card inspires you to choose a favourite piece of DSP and create a super simple card with layers.

And here's the card measurements and Trix :)

4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Calypso Coral card base  (4 1/4 x 11 folded in half portrait orientation)

3 5/8 x 4 7/8 Basic White cardstock (CS) layer

4 13/16 x 3 9/16 Mango Melody layer  ***Trix, the 16th of an inch measurements are simply a smidge smaller than the 5/8 and 7/8 Basic White layer above.  I really like a tiny little border.  Measure to the 5/8 of an inch mark and then slide the paper back to the 16th inch mark just before it on the paper trimmer, repeat for the 7/8 inch mark.

2 x 11/16 piece of You're a Peach DSP

1/2 x 2 3/8 Basic White piece for sentiment

Lovely You stamp set

Calypso Coral ink

Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon

Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed Sequins

Assembly & Trix:

*  Adhere the Mango Melody layer to the Basic White CS layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (glue)

*  Adhere the DSP to the Mango Melody layer with glue.

*  Tie a ribbon around the card and make a bow just above where the sentiment layer will be.

*  Adhere the layer to the card base with glue.

*  Stamp the sentiment with Calypso Coral ink and adhere below the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals.

*  Adhere the Artistry Blooms Sequins, they're adhesive backed, easy peasy :)

******A super clean and simple card, change the DSP, cardstock colour, sentiment and embellishments and you'll have am entirely different card!  Thx again Linda for the terrific sketch and congrats to the design team on this milestone achievement!
