Tuesday Trigger - Winter Blossoms

At Moxie Fab World, the Tuesday Trigger challenge photo is this:


Gorgeous paper flowers!  I decided to make my own paper flowers, too.


In fact, I made two versions of this card because I couldn't decide whether I liked the 3D version, or the flat (read:  more mail-friendly) version.


Some close-ups:



Which version do you like better?  I'm entering them both at Moxie Fab World.  I'll let Cath Edvalson decide if either one is worthy of being a Trigger!

Thanks for joining me!

I like the 3D'd -- however it will be a challenge to mail it! :) Love the script bg too!

They are both really pretty cards Colleen!!

Well, I like both of them and can't quite decide. Is it just my monitor - the 3D ones look more intense in color which is cool but then the flat ones look more muted in color which is also nifty! Either way, you have a winner on your hands! Love the pearls in the center and that script is really elegant!

So pretty Colleen!! I like both of them!! Great take on the trigger - I haven't been able to wrap my head around this one yet.

Annette said...

beautiful...great take on the trigger.

Maria said...

So so pretty! I love both versions! The layered flowers are fabulous either way! Take care and have a wonderful week, hugs!

Lisa said...

Oh what pretty blossoms Colleen! While both are lovely, I like the flat verison best. The colors are softer on this one. PRETTY cards ;)

I'm all about the 3-D Colleen! That's just my style! i don't care if they cost more to mail because i always get that phone call saying how special the 3-D flowers are! LOVE your design! LOVE the text background and the HELLO!

Marisa said...

Loving the 3D flowers :) Great take on the trigger.

Jaclyn Miller said...

Those 3D flowers are FAB! Totally gorgeous and great take.

Emily Keaton said...

Oh, both of these are FAB, Col!! I love them both--great idea to make a mailable version, too. I love it when cards can brighten someone's day without too much effort (of going to find a padded envelope or box plus extra postage!). I think you nailed the Trigger. :)

I love the 3D version because it's so elegant and the dimension really adds the WOW! But I like the flat version because it can be mailed. Decisons, decisions....

What a beautiful take on the trigger! WONDERFUL card!

Linda R. said...

I have to say I like the 3-D version. But I have been making my cards with a little less volume when I can.. Just so I can mail.. They are both lovely...

Hugs, Linda

Colleen, the 3-D blossoms are breathtaking! Both versions are lovely. The other would be easier for mailing, but that doesn't matter with works of art!

Amazing trigger take!

So pretty...I like the 3D but they're both great. I guess you could buy some of those boxes at Joan's Gardens for mailing cards with big flowers/embellies on them.

Of course, that could get expensive for the postage amount.

Colleen both cards are gorgeous. You nailed the Trigger twice; such a fabulous job. I love your flowers :)
Chic and stunning; as usual :)

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

OHHHHH! I just love these cards--I think both are pretty, but that 3D card just POPS! LOVE LOVE LOVE those colors!

Carol (Gingerbeary8) said...

My favorite is the one with the flowers that have some dimension...just because that is the type of girl I am...lol These are so pretty.

rockwelldesigns said...

WOW! LOVE LOVE LOVE those 3D flowers!

Cath said...

Hey Colleen! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

Andrea Ewen said...

Although both are gorgeous, my eye was really drawn to the dimensionalized flower...I guess it's just the shading and 3-D effect that is really appealing! I love the neutral background and those gorgeous pops of pastel color! Fantastic!

Jinny Newlin said...

Ooooo! I LOVE the 3-D version! Yummy! I'm all about dimension, though. None of my cards are very mail friendly :(. And your color palette is so serene!
