Fireside Christmas x 2

Happy Wednesday!

I have made two versions of the Christmas card I plan to send this year. I have used the new SU Fireside Christmas set which is available in the Holiday Mini. As soon as I saw this set I fell in love with it and knew I wanted it for this year's cards.

Version 1 is done horizontally:

The 'Merry Christmas' on the inside is from the SU Four the Holidays set:

Version 2 is basically the same card, but done vertically and w/o the sentiment on the front:

Here is the inside:

I used Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive card stock and ink. The images are stamped on Very Vanilla. The Old Olive card stock is embossed with the Petals a Plenty embossing folder and the ribbon is Old Olive Satin.
So, do you like the horizontal or vertical version better? Or, should I make half my cards horizontal and the other half vertical?
Thanks for stopping by.

They are both great. But I think I like the horizontally a bit better.

Holly said...

Beautiful cards! Love them both, so do half and half. :-)

These are both great designs. I really like your choice of embossing folder. I agree with Holly - make half and half.

Beth said...

They are both gorgeous Lisa I would say go with half-n-half.

Ann Schach said... are so making me wish I would have bought this set! Too cute!

Lisa, deine Weihnachtskarten sind ganz zauberhaft geworden!
Klassisch in den schönen Weihnachtsfarben und der geprägte Hintergrund passt wunderbar dazu!

Liebe Grüße und ein schönes Wochenende - Regina

As always, love your cards. Personally I like the second one better! TFS!
Rubber hugs,

Lisa I like both of them but if I had to choose I would say I like the vertical one best.

Lisa these are beatiful. I love them both equally. I so love the insides, it gives them that extra touch. Hugs, Carla

I love this image, and I love the cards you made with it. I actually like the vertical one the best because the fireplace image seems more vertical. Either way, it is a great card. Best, Curt
