Kinda the Same

Today I had to make a couple of cards for a swap I'm part of. The brief was think Spring and friendship. To help with the colour choice I found this lovely subtle Spring palette at The Paper Players

I'm still playing around with my newest stamp set; Kinda Eclectic. This time I've combined it with stamps from an old set, Vintage Vogue. I think they go together really well. I love the sunburst behind the leaves and flower. This was the first card I made

Here you can see which elements are stamped flat and which are raised on foam pads. Like the little matching gem?

Next I made the second card, this time on a square base. This means it's all closer together. I changed the colour used for the sunburst.

This time different elements have been left flat or raised up. The letter is fussy cut out and mounted over the dots and I coloured in the centre of the flower before adding the gem

Here you can see both cards together. Which one do you prefer? I think the first is my favourite but it was fun to play around with an idea and try out different ways, I usually only make single cards.
