Sweet As A Peach Gate-Fold Cards

One of my favorite ways to showcase beautiful Designer Series Papers is with a gate-fold card. The branch image in the Sweet As A Peach stamp set is the perfect size for a pretty focal point on gate-fold cards!

Background Basics—The Calypso Coral card base measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and is scored at the 2-1/8" and 6-3/8" marks to create the front gate-fold panels. TIP: Line up the edges of the gate-fold panels nice and flush before using the Bone Folder to crease the score lines into place.
I decorated the front panels with 1-7/8" x 5-1/4" coordinating pieces of You're A Peach DSP.

Fantastic Floral—I stamped the Sweet As A Peach leafy branch in Pear Pizzazz ink onto a 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of Basic White. I inked the matching flower image in Petal Pink ink, then I sponged some Calypso Coral ink onto the flower centers with a Sponge Dauber. I love the variegated color that simple technique provides!  I layered that onto a 2-5/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Calypso Coral cardstock, then popped those up with Dimensionals onto a Basic White Scalloped Contours label. The whole thing is attached to the left gate fold panel with more Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—I stamped a Sweet As A Peach sentiment in Old Olive ink onto a 3-1/2" x 5/8" piece of Balmy Blue and adhered it to the focal point layer with SEAL Adhesive. I finished with a few Opal Rounds gems floating around the flowers.

Two Cool—I selected a couple of different patterns of the You're A Peach DSP for the second card and stuck with the same Calypso Coral card base.

Pretty Peaches—When you turn the leafy branch upside-down, it can be used with the peaches trio image! I stamped them in Petal Pink and dabbed on some Calypso Coral ink with the Dauber. 
Sweet Sentiment—I switched up the sentiment and inked it in Soft Suede this time to match the branches on the DSP. It's stamped onto a Petal Pink strip of cardstock that I fishtail cut on the ends for a banner look. 
I didn't pop up the focal point layer this time, but I did pop up the sentiment just to change it up a bit.
