Another peekie...

... and it's a quickie! First off, sorry about the poor photos... it was cloudy yesterday when I shot these.

I thought I'd show how my cards sometime progress during the design stage. I started with the one on the bottom left, then switched up a couple things that resulted in the bottom right... and ended up with the top one.

The bottom left was too... blah. The bottom right just wasn't doin' it for me... it didn't quite have the visual triangle I was going for.

The one I ended up with works the best, I think, because there are three elements and they are grouped together; there isn't an over- abundance of white; and it has ribbon :)

Stamps: Holiday Cheer (available today!), Go Abroad

Paper: White UltraSmooth, Amelia & Scarlet cardstocks

Ink: Jardin Moss, Moulin Rouge, & New Canvas Palettes

Other: Christmas Red & Icicle Stickles, Corner Chomper, Scor-bug & Scor-Pal, foam tape, misc. ribbon

This isn't really a "new" stamp set, but it hasn't been available for almost a year... thankfully TAC brought it back!!

What do you think?

I agree with your progression 100%! The Merry Christmas just fills the white up a little better. Super card!

Fun card! Neat process getting to the one you all made.

I love the shape of them with only two opposite corners rounded! I love that scarlet deep red too!

That was a cool way of showing how you get to the finished product. The other cards are just as good, but ribbon is better. I like very much!!
