Is it an Orange or is it a Peach?

I was making cards for our last SAS (next one is Sept 9th, get signed up now!) and I was using DSP.  I used two different packages – Whole Lot of Lovely and Naturally Eclectic DSP and showed how to make a card with each DSP…. okay, yes, there might have been more than 20 cards… but not by much!  When I came to a paper in the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP that I just had to use – you know that piece that you usually use the back of or worse yet it is left for your stack of old DSP from years ago! (Yes, we all have one or two stacks like that!)  So I was making the card and I thought it was an orange later I was told it was a peach.  Well, I was not going to redo the entire card so in the instructions I called it the "fruit".  I know you can squeeze oranges but did you know you can squeeze peaches!  Leave me a comment if you think it is a peach or an orange!  Hope you enjoy the card.  My 10/20 card class is this Thursday at the Quality Inn in Lodi  from 9am to about 9pm – drop in and say hi and make some cards with us!

The "fruit" is popped up!  Hard to tell in the picture.

Sets:   Playful Background, Lemon Zest

Card Stock:  Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, 

Inks:  Tranquil Tide, Crushed Curry

Other: Whole Lot of Lovely DSP,  Wink of Stella

Steps/Instructions:  

Stamp saying on top left and bottom right of Whisper White card front with Tranquil Tide ink. Check where you want the large fruit placed, then stamp with Crushed Curry circles on the top right and bottom left on the Whisper White card front.  Stamp off, using Crushed Curry ink with the circles on the top left and bottom right of card front.

Add the large fruit to the card front using dimensionals.

Small fruit is for you to use as you wish on the card.  Yes, you have to fussy cut it out!

Adhere the Crushed Curry step down to the Tangerine Tango card base, then adhere the Whisper White card front to the Crushed Curry card stock.

Use wink of Stella on the small white flowers!

Thanks to Maggie J. for fussy cutting all the large fruit!
