Default Which do you like better?

I am trying to decide between 2 different cards for a workshop this weekend. They supplies are basically the same...same layout, same color scheme but I think two very different cards.....

I appreciate any input

Roses in Winter

Artfully Asian

I asked this in the demo thread, but I wanted some opinions of "workshop guests" - which would you rather do?

Thanks,
Jeanna

I think they are both fabulous, but if I were attending a workshop, I would choose the "Artfully Asian". It is very elegant.

I also like "Artfully Asian", I like the softness of the color combination.

They're both great, but if I had to choose one, it would be the Artfully Asian card. I like the soft color scheme and the graceful flowers.

I love both of them but feel the Artfully Asian might be easier for new stampers.

Well, they are both nice, but the RIW shows two step stamping, which is good

Artfully Asian. They are both pretty, but as a beginner, I feel I would be more 'successful' with artfully asian. I, personally, prefer the simplicity of it.

Just my thoughts.

I'm kind of thinking I might take both and let each guest choose.
Good idea?

Wow, both of those are beautiful! I love them both, but if I had to choose, it would be the Roses in Winter card.

Letting the guest choose is a great idea! I would certainly appreciate that as a guest.

I like the idea of letting the guest choose. I have the Artfully Asian set, and will definitely try your card! Now I want Roses in Winter even more. Not that I like roses or anything...

I would do something more simple, so my preference would be Artfully Asian. After all, you do want to attract newcomers so keeping it simple I would say is absolutely imperative. Plus this one is elegant, although simple. Happy stamping! TAQ

I have to say I like the Roses in Winter one the most. Two step stamping is what hooked me. Hard decision though. I like the idea of letting the people at the party choose. Beautiful color choices.

Thats hard because I love Artfully Asian but if I were going to a paid workshop - I would want a lot for my money so I would think Roses in winter is more challenging.

I'm thinking it might be easiest to let them choose based on their comfort level.
Most people did choose my first one though...I guess just like taking a test, go with your first instinct!
Thanks for the nice comments!

I vote for Artfully Asian - I like them both, but I have a rose set and would rather do something I couldn't do at home.

The Artfully Asian is beautiful, and I'm not just saying that because I HATE the Roses in Winter set. It really is a lovely card! Go with that one.

My vote is for Roses in Winter. This is a great set for a new stamper because it is forgiving, demonstrates 2 step stamping and you don't have to color anything in. The card has more depth and interest as well. Great color combo too!!

I love both sets; but would choose to see how you did your RIW card. As a previous poster said - two-step stamping is what intrigued me as a new stamper.

I vote for Artfully Asian and then demo Roses to show how such a complicated card is really very simple. Good luck. My first workshop is tomorrow and my hostess called to let me know she would have 13 guests!
