More In-Depth Look at Holiday Magic from CTMH

I thought I'd share with you how these cards look different than my workshop cards -- besides the obvious reasons of differing paper and stamps.  Oh, wait, there isn't any other difference!

This first one corresponds to the first Dreamin' Workshop on the Go card sample.  The Dreamin' card can be found on page 37 of the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book.  This first card is a new pattern thus is not named.

A simpler card that entails the tree as the focal point with a rhinestone designer brad at the top.  A Topiary second generation tree was rolled in Topiary ink before stamping.  The trunk was stamped in Chocolate after the tree was cut out.  If I had to do it again, I'd stamp the trunk and then cut the image out as one.

I thought the card needed something, but what.  I thought about adding ribbon but white ribbon wouldn't stand out against the white background.  I like the symmetry of the pattern so I didn't want to add any brads to either side.  I decided to add stitching!  It amazes me how something so trivial as marker lines can such a big difference.  Which card do you like better?
