Two Cards - Same Design
I'm guest designing over at Inkspirational where the theme for this fortnight is "Anything Goes". I wanted to do something I haven't done before and what I love to see in others blog posts - to use the same design and materials, but creating different looks by changing colors and DPs.
My cards have the same layout, the same stamped image - a bunny from Lily of the Valley - the same oval dies have been used to make the panels for the Christmas sentiment (in Norwegian). The bunnies have been fussy cut and popped on foam.
I started making the card in black and grey, being inspired by the combination of spots and lines and untraditional Christmas colors. The bunny has a paper pieced pyjamas. This DP and the one used for the top panel are from Authentique, the one with spots is from Echo Park. The sentiment is heat embossed in black and is placed onto a piece of die cut silver glitter paper.
For my second card I colored the whole image and chose traditional red and white and a little bit of brown. The DP on top is covered with Christmas sentiments in Norwegian, the bottom one is covered with poinsettias - this DP is from Pion.
I really enjoyed making these two cards and I'm pleased with my first attempt of making 2 cards with the same design. I think they turned out quite different. I think my favorite one is the black and grey one, but hubby's favorite is the traditional one. Which one's your favorite? I'd love to hear your feedback!
