I took the same basic elements, used different stamps, and used slightly different layouts.
The elements I used were: white cardstock, a piece of designer paper (all of them used the same paper - some were from one side and some from the other), a piece of Sahara Sand matted with a piece of Cherry Cobbler, a piece of white (with a stamped image) matted with Not Quite Navy, and a sentiment stamped on a punched piece (although one was stamped below the sailboat). Most had a piece of ribbon tied with a "cheaters" bow.
So...have you thought about making many of the "same" card - just making variations? These all turned out so different. I think it's interesting that I didn't choose to make any of these a vertical card. Strange...it would have seemed like such a logical choice!
