Simple Saturday – One Look, Two Cards

Stampin Up Canada Chrismtas Cards

 

These two cards use the exact same layout with different colours of cardstocks and papers. 

The first card is Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler cardstock with Jolly Holiday designer series paper. The second card uses Always Artichoke cardstock instead of the Old Olive and Deck the Halls designer series paper in place of the Jolly Holiday dsp.

I was surprised by how different the feel is to each of these – the card on the left is more contemporary and bright while the card on the right has a more traditonal, vintage sense to it.

For both cards I used a greeting from the Bright Christmas stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink on a Crumb Cake card. I added a Cherry Cobbler punched ornament that I embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder for the Big Shot.

The Old Olive and Always Artichoke cardstock measures 5-1/2" x 2" and each designer series paper square is 1-3/8" x 1-3/4".

These cards were great for Simple Saturday since they were fast and easy to prep and assemble. It is also a great layout if you need to make lots of cards for any occasion.

 

So, what’s your preference – contemporary or traditional? Pleave leave a comment below and let me know.

    Well I think it is a little hard to pick but I am leaning more to the contemporary card. Yes that is what I will pick!!

    I usually think of myself as one who prefers the vintage or traditional look of things, but in this case I find I really prefer the contemporary card! The brightness of it is very appealing to me…
