This or That? Cup of Tea Cards

Friends, yesterday I made a card with a colour scheme of Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, and Gold for St Patrick's Day. Today I've changed up the colours to Cajun Craze, Petal Pink, and Gold. I'd love to hear which one you prefer:

This

Or That?


Both cards feature the Cup of Tea Bundle. Le jeu d'estampes est également disponible en français. I'll include a clickable photo supply list for you at the end of this post.

What do you think, friends? Which one appeals more to you - or are they about equal? If you missed yesterday's instructions & demo for the green and gold card, click here.

To make the Cajun Craze, Petal Pink & Gold card, I started with stamping and heat embossing. With VersaMark Ink, I stamped the teacup from the Cup of Tea Stamp Set onto a scrap of Cajun Craze Cardstock. I sprinkled on Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders, returning the excess to the jar. The powders come in a set of 3 colours - Copper, Gold, & Silver - and they last a long time:


To achieve the embossed effect, I used my Heat Tool to work its magic, turning the powder into a shiny, raised gold. 

Next, I did the die cutting and dry embossing. I first cut out the stamped teacup with the Teacup Dies. With the same dies, I cut out 3 hearts using a Gold scrap of Fine Shimmer Paper Pack. 

With the 3rd largest circle in the Stylish Shapes Dies, I cut out a Petal Pink Cardstock label. I stamped my sentiment in Cajun Craze Ink. Then I used the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder to emboss a 3" x 5 1/4" strip of Cajun Craze Cardstock. This is a great folder that can be used in many projects:

To assemble the card, I first layered onto a 4 1/4" x 11" Crumb Cake Cardstock card base the embossed strip, plus a 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" piece of Gold Fine Shimmer Paper and a 2" x 5 1/4" strip of Cajun Craze & Petal Pink Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty DSP. 

To finish the card, I added all my die cuts, using Stampin' Dimensionals. Then I tied a bow in Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon and attached it with a Mini Glue Dot. Finally, I embellished with Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to give a finishing touch of shine:
