Manhattan Three-Fold

I made a simple, but elegant card at my friend, Kim's a while ago with the Manhattan Flower Impressions Folder.  It was so simple, but I loved it.  I decided to create another one.  When I made the first one below, I decided to have a little more fun and play with my white ink pads.

This was was made by using the Manhattan embossing folder and lightly swiping the impression with white pigment ink.  I only wanted to pick up the embossed flowers.  I topped off the card with a thank you sentiment from Because I Care (hostess level 1 set) and whisper white organza ribbon.  Oh, I almost forgot I  spritzed it with the vanilla shimmer smooch.  Pretty!  You might be able to see the shimmer, if you click on the picture to enlarge it.

For this one, I decided to use a heavy amount of whisper white pigment ink all over the card.  A little different look, but still just as pretty!  All the other materials are the same.  More smooch!  I love that word.

For the last one, I played with my white staz-on pad.  It is a thicker ink, so the image looks painted.  Oh, to pick my favorite....I don't think I can.  I like them all!

Which one do you like best?  My hubby and boys liked the second one.  I had them vote separately, so they wouldn't know which one was chosen, and they still all picked the same.

Hi Kim! Great cards!! I love all three of them, too! Different looks.

I have to confess, I looked several times to figure out where the card was folded three times. (I'm too literal sometimes! - or just dense.)

I love all the different looks, but I agree with your hubby and boys. The second one outshines the other two,IMHO.

Such a pretty trio of cards, Kim. I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite. I am actually leaning a bit toward the first one, but the second is also very appealing.

Great work on all three!
