You’re As Sweet As A Peach

I have quite a few friends who are as sweet as a peach, and it’s about time I let them know! That’s why today’s cleaner and simpler card is a perfect design for me to create a few more to send off to my “peachy” friends. How about you? Why not make a few of these cards to send off to your own “sweet as a peach” friends! It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

The super-talented Joanne is our host for this month’s Clean and Simple challenge.  She has chosen “Fruit & Berries” as our theme. How cute is that!  I can’t wait to see what fruit or berries YOU pick for your card.  But remember, it is clean and simple week.  Keep layers and embellishments to a minimum; keep it simple and uncluttered ; and let’s see lots of “white” space!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

I LOVE this layout for cards.  It’s a great one for showcasing your favorite designer series paper.  Because of all of the white space, it  stays on the cleaner and simpler side.   I also LOVE how this card can be used for a variety of occasions, just by selecting the perfect sentiment for the inside.  Using paper banners instead of ribbon makes it less bulky to mail, too.
