Sweat as a Peach in Review - Card Holder

 Hello, mu stamping friend.

Last few weeks I was creating a lot with Sweat as a Peach bundle. I also had a class featuring that bundle with everything 'peachy' - from cards, 3Ds, deserts,  drinks - you name it.

One of the projects we did was a Card Holder. It is very easy one and only requires one sheet of the paper (8 1/2 x 11).

The idea came from Rose Grunewald and I slightly adopted the measurements.

Measurements :

  • Balmy Blue CS: 4 ½ x 11”; 3 ½ x 11” 
  • Old Olive: 3 x 4”; 2 ½ x 4”; 2 5/8 x 3 ¾” 
  • DSP: 2 7/8 x 3 7/8; 2 3/8 x 3 7/8”; 

Score 4 ½ x 11” piece at 5 7/8 and 6 ¾” on 11” side 2. 

Score 3 ½ x 11” piece at 4 ½; 5 3/8; 9 7/8 and 10 ¾” on 11” side and at 7/8” on 3 ½” side. This will be a box to hold the cards. 

Watch a video how to make the Holder.
