Got Cake?

One thing I am trying to do is make two cards at a time. I figure I have all of the stuff out, might as well cut and stamp two of everything. It really doesn't take that much longer, and I can give or sell one and still have one to keep. I was hoping this would help me give them up easier but I'm STILL lazy about givng cards. I'll keep trying though, lol!

I usually don't take pictures of both cards because they look pretty much the same. But this time, I made one distressed and one more elegant. Here they are side by side:


And some detailed pictures of each one:

I used the "Birthday Celebration" stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps and the "All Occasion Circles" by TAC. The papers are from DCWV and Cosmo Cricket.






I used some Nestabilities dies to make the shapes and a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the textured section.



This is a picture of the inside. It matches the front and all layers are distressed.


Now here's the "elegant" one:







Here's the inside.


Which one do you like better?

These are beautiful Vicki! Not sure which one I like better. They are both gorgeous in their own way. I have to say I have a hard time giving mine away too - LOL

Both are beautiful. If I had to chose I would say I like the NON distressed one. But I am not one to distress. Just my personal preference. But they are gorgeous!

Did you really make these? Where's the stitching? LOL!! Both are great!

They're both great but I think I like the distressed one better. It has more dimension and texture. Just "pops" more.

I think the distressed one would make a great masculine card, but I think the elegant one would be a terrific card for a lady! Isn't that funny!?! I love them both though!!
