Fresh Fruit! Palaside Peaches!

FreshFruit.0716.2It peach time here in Colorado.  It’s the time of the year when peaches from the Western Slope (west side of the Rockies) are juicy and ripe.  In fact, this coming weekend there is a whole festival in Palaside, CO celebrating the peach!

People around here go crazy for these peaches.  Apparently they’re delicious.  (Personally I don’t care for them).  My friend and her daughter spent Sunday cutting up 75 peaches.  They made 4 batches of jam and 7 peach pies for the freezer.

OK.  If you’re like me and don’t really care for peaches you can still appreciate a cute card with peaches on it, right?!  You can’t go wrong with the Fresh Fruit stamp set and the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.  I thought this card turned out pretty nice, how about you?

I didn’t want to use the designer paper on the whole card.  In this type of situation I usually put the designer paper on the bottom of the card and leave a little white space at the top.  This time I wanted to try something different so I put the designer paper on the side.  However, this left a little bit too much empty white space for me so I ran the white through Big Shot.  Actually….and here’s your trick for a Tuesday…..I first put my designer paper on the piece of Whisper White card stock and then I ran ONLY HALF of it through the Big Shot with the Seaside Embossing Folder!  Woo Hoo!  I LOVE that look!  Sometimes I can amaze myself.  Ha!

The last thing I did to the card to make it a little special was to color the peach with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush!  I love that little gem!  It always adds a little something to any card!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
