My "Signature" Christmas Card~Which do you like best? Poll!!


Card A with flat post mark?

I hate to say it but I just love my card!! I love using non traditional Christmas colors. You will probably never find me using just red and green!
I had so much fun making my card. I just love this stamp set!
It is by Stampin' Up and called Winter Post.
I can just feel the "serenity" as I was making it.
The inside sentiment is from a Level One Hostess Set called Holiday Best. I also used the
Top Note Die.
The last photo was my First try on the card. I "popped" the little post mark on this original one but not on the final card. I did "pop" the stamp though on the final card. I then decided to add the darling stamp that IS a stamp and is from a Level Two Hostess Set called Christmas Punch.
I used Real Red, Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip and love the color combination!!
I usually am my own worst critic but I love this card!! I hope the recipients do too!
I have had orders to make a bunch of these!
Please do me a favor and tell me if you like the the top card ( final) A
or the bottom card ( original) B the best?
The insides are the same!!!

Please leave a comment and just for fun take the poll....see above!!!

Thanks!! Barb

Card B with "popped" post mark?

Gorgeous! I THINK I like the bottom card the best...very hard to decide though. I love the top note die inside too....great job!

Helen said...

Great card! I think I like the top one better. It looks more like an envelope would.

Margie said...

Oh, how pretty! Think I like the top one best. More realistic. Beautiful colors!

Hi Barb. Both are terrific, but I like the bottom one the best. I think the skaters stand out more on it and the red on the top one takes your eye away from the skaters. I voted.

I like the first one best (unpopped) it looks more like a real postage mark.

I like the unpopped one best. It seems most authentic. They both are beautiful.
