In today’s installment of the Create-A-Greeting-Card Scholarship Look Back Series, Dawnee Burson takes us through 5 of her favorite cards from The Gallery Collection’s line and gives her reasoning for each. Whenever we ask people around the office what their favorite designs are, everyone gives us a different answer, so it is always interesting when we get an outside perspective. We truly appreciate Dawnee taking the time and looking through our line to find her favorites.

Natures Wonder Holiday Card Natures Wonder Holiday Card

1. Natures Wonder Holiday Card – “This card has such a beautiful, peaceful scene. Deer are such beautiful and graceful animals and to see them in a natural setting in the winter season when everything is white and quiet is truly neat. This card captures that and is well named. I think the lighting at the top of the card adds some nice soft color and really adds to the scene as well.” – Dawnee Burson

Construction Snowmen Christmas Card Construction Snowmen Christmas Card

2. Construction Snowmen Christmas Card – “It is very creative and fun–both the design and the wording–and I like cards that are specific to certain professions or businesses. They have some added charm, and it’s neat to see cards that show aspects of certain professions or businesses.” – Dawnee Burson

Cupcake Surprise Birthday Card Cupcake Surprise Birthday Card

3. Cupcake Surprise Birthday Card – “I like the coloring on the card and the funny cartoon people–it shows a variety of personalities like you usually find in an office and it made me laugh.” – Dawnee Burson

Bursting Congratulations Wishes Card Bursting Congratulations Wishes Card

4. Bursting Congratulations Wishes Card – “The gold and red stand out nice against the black background. It’s a classy card well suited for telling someone congratulations, but also has some flavor and fun to it in the design with the balloons and confetti popping out.” – Dawnee Burson

Meadow Flower Get Well Card Meadow Flower Get Well Card

5. Meadow Flower Get Well Card – “I think this is a perfect type of get well card. It’s light and cheerful–just what people want when they aren’t feeling well, and I love daisies. They’re simple but very pretty and the writing blends well with the design of the daisies above the words–the leaves embellish both the flowers and the words. Just a relaxed, simple, cheery card.” – Dawnee Burson

We want to thank Dawnee again for taking the time out of her busy schedule to pick out some of her favorite designs. Let us know what yours are in the comments and come back next week when we move onto the 2009 Scholarship Contest.

I like Dawnee’s choices –they’re all bright, fun, and happy cards!

I agree with Erica. Its great that you keep up with them.

These cards are all so great!! But my absolute favorite has to be the Cupcake Surprise Birthday card. I love that the characters look hand drawn and that it is bursting with so many colors, I also love the fact that it showcases the personalities of each character, which is very true to a work environment. It is a cheery card…I would love to hang this up at my desk!!!

This is a cute idea. I really loved her winning design too. While these 5 cards wouldn’t be on my top 5 I have to agree that they are all great cards. The Get Well especially. The daisies are very sweet and cheerful

It seems like Dawnee like’s nature cards along with fun and bright. I like the fact that The Gallery Collection brings back past winners since they are very creative and their opinions may help you decide on the perfect card.

Dawnee likes to say neat. I think that is neat. I like neat. Neat is neat. NEAT!

I also agree with Dawnee’s choices but my favorite is the one with the deer in the woods. I see deer very often in my back yard. It makes me feel good to know they are safe and secure while there. I also enjoy other wildlife in my yard. A family of wild turkeys have been seen there on occasion.
