Blog Candy - Vote For the Best Card Design

Someone asked me to design a card for a "thank you" note for I assume is a baby shower. She's going to choose the design that she wants from the card samples below. She chose the sketch she wanted and the colors. The cards below are what I came up with based on the colors and the sketch she wanted.

To win the blog candy all you need to do is vote for which card design you like the best and I will do a random drawing (pull the name out of a hat). I haven't come up with the prize yet but I'll make it a good one. You may email me with your vote at lbmcd66@hotmail.com or comment by clicking on "comment" below this post. The cards are numbered #1, #2, and #3 based on the order it is pictured on this post. I will do the drawing on Monday, April 16th. Thank you for your participation!!

I think #3 is adorable, especially if the baby is already here. You obviously put a lot of work into all 3, and they are cute, but I'm sticking by #3!!!

I love all of them but if I have to choose I would pick #3. I love the layering and I especially love what you did with the slit punch! You do a wonderful job! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creations!

Whow have to be totally honest and say that they would not be the colours I would personally pick for a baby thank you but then life would be extremely boring if we all picked the same wouldn't it soooo on that note!!! I definitely like 3# with the cute baby hands, very sweet

Bonnie Weiss said...

As usual Maria, you have created 3 great cards! My pick would be #1.

Anonymous said...

I'm voting for #3. The other two look a little to busy for me for some reason. #1 is a little too "light" #2 which I originally was going to vote for, now looks a little "too much" #3 is just right!

All 3 cards are nice, but I have to vote for #3, I love the handprint.

Anonymous said...

I like #2. On #1 I love the dry embossing, but the Bg is too light for me. I like the dark scalloped border on #2 on the BG. :o)
Happy Stamping!

I vote for #3, love the handprint and the color combo!!

bethtrue said...

I like #1 because of the butterfly. However i think i would do the ribbon in maybe a lighter color than the gingham black. I love the little bib - it looks like its embossed? very cute!!

Good luck!

Darlene said...

I vote for #2. It is a hard decision because they are all so cute.
Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy.

I vote for number 1. I like number 3, but in the picture the hand does not look as small and dainty as a baby's hand.

Hi Maria,

It seems that people who like #2 are definitely different than people who like #1 and #3 -- I had a tough time chooseing between #1 and #3 -- but I like #3 the best -- the hand being raised on the dimensionals really works, and I am in LOVE with that purple color mat! Though the one comment that #1 looks more "newborn" should be considered. So -- #3 is my choice. Hope I win some blog candy, too ;^)*

Hard to choose I like all 3! But I think I will have to go with #2. Great cards! Very cute!

I have to vote for #3 also. The handprint definitely does something for the card as well as the uses you made of the slit punch. I sigend up to receive your updates. To bad Temecula is so far away from Ventura. I live just up in the hills from there.

I love number 3! The small hand is just adorable. I love the use of white...makes it look like one of those hand print things you do with your kiddos to preserve it.

Maria, they are all cute but the colors on the second one are beautiful so that is my pick. Great blog by the way, I am fairly new.
