Sweet as a Peach

I am very much a card maker but every now and then I step outside my comfort zone and make something different. Today was one of those days.

I love the Sweet as a Peach bundle and the co-ordinating dsp, the colours are so fresh and pretty. The daft thing is I’m not mad about the peaches but this bundle has so much more to offer, I can make very good use of it without stamping a single peach!

I love the new Tailor Made Tag dies and decided to make a 'wallet' with a selection of tags inside. The colours chosen are all featured in You're a Peach dsp, they are Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, Pale Papaya and Pear Pizzazz. I've used Evening Evergreen for all the sentiments.

Here is how I made the wallet, the measurements are in inches as I don't have the metric plate for my scoreboard.

Outer card for wallet - Balmy Blue 5 x 5 1/2

Pockets - Pale Papaya 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 (x2)

DSP - 2 x 4 3/4 (x2) and 3/4 x 4 3/4 (x2)

Large tag - Pale Papaya (x2)

The outer card has been scored at 2 1/4 and 3 1/4.

The pockets have been cut (blue lines) and scored (red lines) as per the picture below.

The DSP has been used to decorate the outside of the wallet and the spine of the inside.

The two tags are cleverly used to attach ribbon to hold the wallet closed. They overlap on the spine and are only stuck down there. I scored them at 1 and 3 3/8.

I assembled the pockets and stuck them to the inside of the wallet using strong double sided tape.

I have added some Pale Papaya ribbon and decorated the wallet with stamped and die cut elements. I used a blending brush to ink up the flowers as I wanted a mix of Calypso Coral and Pale Papaya.

The tags were a lot of fun to make, I used up so many little pieces of cardstock and dsp. The hole reinforcers are so cute and look great in a contrasting colour.

All the sentiments you see on the tags have come from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set. I have used a mixture of ribbon, bakers twine and linen thread.

I used a couple of tags on some parcels. Rather than using wrapping paper, I quite like to wrap a gift in brown paper and then add some decoration and a pretty tag. With both of these parcels I added an inch wide strip of dsp and on the little one I added a stamped and die cut branch with flowers.

I would definitely recommend the Tailor Made Tag dies, I know I will be using them all the time. As for Sweet as a Peach, all I can say is don't be put off by the peaches!

You will find links below for all the items used, I hope you enjoyed reading my tutorial.

Back soon,
