You're A Peach card made using the Just Because cards cartridge and the July stamp of the month!

Hello, friends!


Today I have a card made using the Just Because Cards cartridge and the July stamp of the month. For this card I was going for a vintage fruit label look. I wanted it to be very bright and cheerful though.

The little banner was just a strip of White Daisy cardstock that I stamped and twisted into a banner. To get the duck tail ends I used a square punch. 

All the shading was done using coordinating mini pigment ink pads. Those things are so perfect for adding depth to those cricut cuts.

I used White Daisy, Buttercup, Pear, Sweet Leaf, Sorbet, Sky, Blush, and Chocolate Close To My Heart cardstock.

For chevron background, I used the In the Background stamp set and Buttercup ink. The sentiment from the July Stamp of the Month is stamped in Sorbet ink.
