A Combination of GDP437, Double-Trouble #162, & Beautiful Blossoms

Welcome to Just Peachy Stamping! I’m on Spring Break this week and had fun creating cards for challenges in addition to working ahead for the design teams of which I am a part. Today’s card combines the Global Design Project 437, the Double Trouble Challenge #162, and their partner for this challenge, the Beautiful Blossoms March challenge

Here’s my card:


Here are the three challenge banners:

I really should figure out how to resize gallery photos.

Measurements & Cropping:

  • The Coastal Cabana base measures 5-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches. I used it in landscape mode.
  • The Coastal Cabana DSP (designer series paper) measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
  • You also need a piece of the DSP for the envelope flap measuring 6 by 2-1/2 inches.
  • I punched a 1-inch circle of the DSP and ran it through my XYRON create-a-sticker using the opposite side for the envelope seal.
  • Trim a piece of white cardstock to 3 pieces of cardstock. I trimmed them all to 5-1/4 by 4 inches. One is for the scalloped border, one for the inside, and the third to run through the Cut & Emboss machine using a basics 3D embossing folder.
  • HINT: Trim the embossed cardstock after it is embossed. If you trim it to size before embossing, you will wind up with a smaller piece because of the deep embossing.
  • Trim the embossed white cardstock to 4-3/4 by 3-3/8 inches so it fits inside the scalloped border.
  • Crop the daisies from a piece of 4-1/4 by 5-1/2 inch Highland Heather cardstock. This single piece of cardstock will be enough to crop the flowers and the top pieces for them.
  • Crop a bottom and top layer of the leaves.


  • Unless otherwise noted, I used multipurpose liquid glue to adhere pieces together.
  • Adhere the embossed cardstock to the scalloped cardstock.
  • Thread a piece of ribbon (I used the sheer Fresh Fresia ribbon) through the scalloped border and attach the ends on the back of the cardstock using tear & tape.
  • Adhere the scalloped layer to the DSP layer, then adhere that to the base of the card.
  • Using a blending brush and Highland Heather ink, add ink to the top pieces of the daisies.
  • Repeat using a light layer Crumb Cake for the centers of the daisies. I used an almost dry blending brush.
  • Adhere the detailed layers to the bottom layer of each daisy.
  • Adhere the bottom layer of Shaded Spruce leaves to the leaves cropped out with the daisies.
  • Using a third blending brush, blend some Shaded Spruce ink to the detailed layer of the leaves and adhere.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Shaded Spruce ink. Trim into a banner, and outline the sentiment banner with Shaded Spruce ink.
  • Add dimensionals under the daisies (make sure you straddle the ribbon with the dimensionals) and leaves.
  • Adhere the flowers/leaves piece to the front of the card.
  • Use two mini-dimensionals on the right end of the sentiment banner and add some liquid glue to the left end. Adhere to the daisies.
  • Finally, I added three faceted gems to the front of the card.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Have a Peachy Day!
