FINAL DESIGN


Thanks for all your votes and comments on the Christmas card post. After some minor changes of Card #2 suggested by Susan Raihala of Simplicity fame (in a private email) here's what we came up with.

First, by restamping the greeting on lighter dsp and mounting it over the green, it's much easier to read. Using the BOHO Flower punch, I added some red in the center of the flower to make it more Poinsettia-like and added some dark green ferns. I also chose deeper colors of embroidery floss for the bow.

Lowering the whole greeting line down to the bottom third of the card made it more visually pleasing. It's amazing how minor changes can make such a major impact!

I love the sentiment placement, really provides good balance and shows off the lovely papers!
