Still Seeing Double...

...version 2 x 2.

The idea of creating a 'one layer' card with two of something has caught my imagination and I fancied trying something Christmassy using the same technique. The problem was, I couldn't decide which colour CS to use for the base card - white or kraft - so I've tried both. The same colour inks and the same stamps have been used on both cards.
Using the white CS and Adirondack ink pads in Lettuce & Pesto, I stamped the Clarity Spruce and added the sentiment from one of the new Papermania Christmas clear stamp sets.
As this is intended to be a Christmas card I've added some Crystal Ice Stickles to give a bit of bling.
I wanted to see what effect would be achieved by using the same colours on kraft CS - this was the result. A bit more of a vintage feel to it.
Of course, this one had to have some bling too.

Not sure which I prefer as I like them both but for different reasons.

This is a second entry for the "Less is More" Seeing double challenge................

I think I quite like the kraft version of this card, although both are lovely. The twinkly bits are super.
Getting ahead for Christmas too!
Thanks once more!

Toni, they're both nice but I do like the kraft card more for some reason. Not sure why seems a little more Christmas(ie)maybe? Not even a word but I know you know what I mean. LOL

Like both of these Toni, lovely cards. Probably the kraft one would be my first choice though, just something about it that I can't put my finger on IYKWIM :)
