Month Of Holiday Cards - Day 22

I am up to Day 11 of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards and this time the prompt is to CASE one of my older cards.  I found this one from 2015, which I am not completely happy with.  I feel the Angelina fibre is a bit heavy and the sentiment on the ribbon gets a bit lost.


And this is the 2018 version:




I used less Angelina fibre on this one and changed the placement of it to vertical rather than horizontal.  I also used a bit more of a vintage colour scheme.  I replace the ribbon with some washi tape that I think makes the sentiment easier to read.  I changed the bear to a cream colour to more fit the vintage colour scheme.   I also used Glimmer Paste and Wink Of Stella for the sparkle which is a bit more subtle than what I used last time (which I think is Kindy Glitz).  Colouring of the image in both cases is with copic markers.

  1. Both are cute cards but I see what you mean with the angelina fibre on the first card. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. The fibre is a great effect Suze, a kind of shimmery halo around the little bear's head. I love the glitter on the bauble and the embellished ribbons you used... both cards look awesome to me! Great job on CASEing yourself.
    Cheers,
    Beccy

  3. That Stanley bear is so cute! I love both cards but I see what you mean on the second. The image is more of the focal point with less distraction. Very pretty colors you've chosen
