Online Card Class Day 5

There are so many cards to try and so little time :(  I did manage to get two cards done from the Day 5 assignments.  These cards were inspired by  two lovely cards by Kelly Rasmussen.    They were supposed to be 'His and Her' cards, but I'm not really sure I accomplished  I never end up with what I start out to make.

I think they may have turned out just two different styles rather than masculine and feminine.  Her cards had a wonderful curve at the bottom of one and a bracket on the other one.  I didn't have either of those dies so I went old school.  That's right....the dinner plate ;)   For the one on the left I used Ruby cardstock and patterned paper from the Sparkle and Shine paper pack.  I used the silver washi tape for the bottom of the card that peeks out from under the Ruby. 

 I also cut my star from paper I had covered in the silver washi ( I really love that stuff !)   The banners were cut from a die from SSS called Folded Banner.  It's a perfect size for most sentiments.  The sentiment is from the A Holiday stamp set.  I stamped it in versamark and then embossed it in silver.  I used my CTMH silver metallic marker and outlined the tree.  

I'm not sure either of these cards qualify as gender specific, but this one is just a little more fun than the other one.  The chevron stamp is from My Mind's Eye and I used CTMH Pear pigment ink.  The cardstock is Neenah Desert Storm and CTMH Pear.  I outlined this one with my Signo white gel pen.  I cut the star from some scrap yellow pearlized paper. I used the same banner die and sentiment, but with Cranberry cardstock and AC white embossing powder.  

These cards were fun.  I can't wait to try some of the other ones from today.  That's it for me tonight.  For real this time :)  Thanks for stopping by!
