Merry -- The same card in two colour choices

It's surprising what a bit of change in colour can make.  I've made the same card but using two different colour schemes.  The first one I had made in order to enter the Christmas Card Challenges which was to use embellishments.  That was easy because I had planned to use rhinestones, gold foil and a die-cut anyway.

The second card evolved out of the first one because I loved the colour challenge at colourQ and could easily imagine the card made in those colours.  Of course if I had found this challenge before making the card for the other challenge, only one card would have been necessary.  But that's okay.  It's always good to be able to show how colours can make the same card appear different.

What do you think of the way the card looks with the strip of Cherry Cobbler in the centre changed to Early Espresso?  Even the change to Certainly Celery doesn't make as profound a difference.  Overall, my favourite is still the first one I created, but I do like the other colours as well.  What do you think?

With Early Espresso and Lucky Limeade.

With Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.

For more cards in the embellishments challenge check out the Christmas Card Challenge.

In the meantime, leave me a comment and let me know which colour choice you would make.


  1. I think I'm partial to the Early Espresso one. It really makes the gingerbread and other shapes pop! Thanks for joining us at colourQ!

    1. Thank you, Jen. I like the added contrast as well.

  2. Great use of the colors. Thanks, Heidi, for joining us at the Sunday Christmas Card Challenge.

  3. I like both but I agree, the espresso makes it pop more.

    1. Thanks, Ter. I did the Cherry Cobbler one first and really liked that but the whole card changes with the change of colour. What a difference colour makes, huh?
