Cherry Vanilla Warmth & Wonder

In my last post I shared some cards almost exactly as I have today...only a different color scheme. Todays cards are probably considered more traditional Christmas colors compared to the Island Indigo used on the previous post.

As I told you in Tuesdays posting, I was inspired by a gorgeous card created by Sandy. The one above is closest to the inspiration card. I also did some with the deer embossed in gold, as shown in the middle card below.
Just to change things up and keep things super exciting (yes...I know, it doesn't take much to amuse me!) as I stamped a large batch of these babies, I also did some in Cherry Cobbler.
The only current DSP I had featuring predominately Crumb Cake was from the Season of Style Paper Stack, and I didn't feel it was elegant enough for this design, so I chose some from the Elegant Soirée DSP. Although it is now retired, you can still get it as a Digital Download.

Here's a close up of the two...
and a look at all twenty that I made.
I really cannot decide which one I like the most. Which color combo do you prefer?
Hope to be back soon...but I'm falling behind on Christmas shopping...still more to do, wrapping...not one gift wrapped yet! And to make matters worse...I'm still working on some gifts that I am making...and Christmas is less than a week away! Have a GREAT day!

They are all drop dead gorgeous, but my eye kept going to the one on the left. (browns/beige/cream) I don't know why?! I used this stamp in some of my Christmas cards with the textured frames embossing folder, just like you did, and I couldn't find a die or punch that would cut out around the dots?! I hand cut them. Did you do the same? It works....just thought we would have an oval that might work as well, but I couldn't find one :) Thanks as always for sharing!

I can't decide which one I like more! I think the brown on the top. Absolutely beautiful! wish I wasn't allergic to embossing!
