Card A or Card B or Both?

I will announce the winner of the Copics some time on Monday.

In the meantime, thank you all for your comments and emails! Lots of good stuff.

Also, the current OLW is on Ardyth's blog and is really a fun one! Play the Game: make a card inspired by a game or some form of play. I really, really wish I had a stamp of a classic painting so I could do a card based on Masterpiece...my favorite board game ever. But alas, I hope I have time to play along with something....

Today's cards are a study in contrasts, and I'm curious to know which one you like better.

Card A: Stamping on colored card stock with white mats

Card B: Stamping on white card stock with colored mats

Which do you like better and why? Or are they the same in your estimation?

Inquiring minds, and all that....

Supplies
stamps: Papertrey Ink (Paper Trey)
ink: Memento black
paper: SU turquoise, green galore, cool Caribbean; Papertrey white
accessories: MS scallop circle punch, circle punch, dimensionals, clear dome sticker

  1. I personally like the first better. I think it's because the colour puts the focus on the sentiment and it just seems like someone is saying it quickly and with energy.

  2. I like the second one better because it is easier to read the sentiment.

  6. Definitely Card A - the hellos look like shiny candies I want to eat.

  7. It's A for me! I think the colour draws the eye to the sentiment!

  8. Card A. Looks more like something you would make also.

  9. Card A. It seems to have more punch.

  10. Card A....makes the sentiment feel more bright, happy, joyful, energetic....

  11. Card a. Its bright, unexpected, and a more contemporary feel.

  12. I like Card A, but somehow my eye is drawn to Card B. Trying to figure out why that is...

  15. I like the first one. Oh help, now I have to explain in English why I like that one better. Euh...I hope I can find the right words hihi. I prefer the white border. The contrast of the coloured border with the white card is too big on the second card for me. White, colour, white. On the first one the colour pops out in a better way because of the white border.

  16. I like card A....it is more vibrant and they look like little jewels popping off the card! :)

  17. I likee the first one...they seem more dramatic !!

  18. I like Card B better - love how the sentiments just seem to pop off the card.

  19. I like Card A - the shiny colour POPS off the page with a little subtle frill around the edge. :-)

  20. I like A the best -- I like color against the white. Great cards BTW :)

  22. First one - the important thing is the message and the colours emphasize the message and the scalloped white circles are pretty embellishment. But hey, that's just me!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm going with A - it seems a little "polished" somehow :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like card A better--I just love the colored paper under the epoxy/acrylic. Plus it seems more "your" type of CAS card with the white mat. I am a huge fan and read your blog regularly via Feedly. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  25. I like card A...the strong pop of color is striking. The white sentiment surrounded by color feels diluted and not as fresh and striking.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like them both. I think that B edges out A just a bit with more contrast between the sentiments and the base.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I prefer A. The white on white is striking and helps to draw the embellishments into the card. The card B embellishments look too pasted on and don't blend with the card as well.

    ReplyDelete
  28. A because the sentiment circles are bolder. I'd have expected to like B better, with contrasting trim to set off the circles, but the sentiments are the main event and they stand out more with A.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like card "A". the white mats seem to make the word hello stand out.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I like them both. Card A seems more serious and elegant (even though the sentiment is the same), while Card B seems warmer and friendly, if that makes sense. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Initially, I liked card A better. The sentiment seemed to pop more. But the more I looked at them, card B crept up to card A.
    In other words, I don't know!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I prefer card B. The sentiment is easier to read and just pops more for me.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Card A certainly packs more of a punch which makes card B look a bit "wishy washy"!!!

  34. I prefer card B. It's brighter and the contrast is not so stark. Card A seems glaring and cold to me, while B seems cheerful and warm.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I prefer card A.The white mats on white card base look more elegant and clean to me. But then again the card B is very fun!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Prefer A ... Amazing but the colour pops more!
    would be interesting to see the tally at the end of the day. I often vote for things and they don't make "top 3" so I wonder if my taste is way out???

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm not sure I can express precisely why, but I do like card A better.

    ReplyDelete
  38. A! It has a slight air of the unexpected, so looks a little more polished.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Definitely A ... the colours are poppier! Anita :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. If I only saw A, I'd be pretty happy with that one. But in comparison I prefer B better. I think it's easier to read the message.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like the second one better because the words are easier to read.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I like A best - the colors are so pretty 'cuz they show up nicely! I am partial to anything blue. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I like card A better. The colors are bright and cheerful and love the shine! Card B, the sentiment seems to disappear.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like B better. The Sentiments stand out more to me. They are still both beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Card A because I'm really liking white on white lately, and the sentiments pop.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Card B. the clear enamels jump right out at me and i like the greater contrast of the colors against the white.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Card A. The color and the sentiment pops more on A.

    Masterpiece. I loved that game, too! Thanks for bringing back great memories.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Def card A. The contrast is more striking

    ReplyDelete
  49. A - it draws my eye immediately to the words!
