Joyful Christmas Two Ways

I love the Joyful Christmas stamp set in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog.  As soon as I saw the card on page 10 of the catalog I knew I wanted to create something very similar for one of my monthly card clubs.  The card in the catalog is a larger square card.  I wanted to change it to fit in one of our medium envelopes.  Here's my version.


Supplies (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamp Set:  Christmas Messages
Card Stock:  Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold
Ink:  Gold Metallic Encore Pad, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories:  Pretty Print Embossing Folder, Expressions Thinlits Dies, Frosted Finishes Embellishments, Gold Embossing Powder

Did you notice that the Frosted Finishes Embellishment wasn't silver as it is in the catalog?  I heat embossed it with gold embossing powder so it would coordinate with the Brushed Gold card stock used for the "Merry" Expressions Thinlit.


While I was working on this card I decided to try another color combo.  Much softer and with silver instead of gold. 


 
So which do you prefer?
