His/Her Cards

 First of all, thank you so much for the comments over my Moxie Fabber feature. Your comments truly make me smile! I felt like I have a permanent smile from yesterday! For that, I am truly grateful that you stick with me! If you like to have a chance to win a small set of stamp, please comment here!


 Now... today's agenda!
I am playing along with the Gallery Idol with the latest challenge. It is to use the same product (elements/supply/stamp/etc) to create a masculine and feminine card. (examples can be found in May/June issue of Paper Crafts, P. 57)

I chose one stamp to use for both cards.
 The masculine one (faux stitching with blue pen, strip of cork was added)

The feminine one (glitter around the Eiffel Tower, Japanese Washi tape adds some chic factor)

I used the small Eiffel Tower stamp and diecut from this set called Style is Eternal

Just after making these two cards, I realized I am not done!!  I went ahead with another design and made another set of his and her cards. I shall share them later. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Both delightful cards, Virginia! Love the pretty colors and the layered sentiment background on the feminine card. And love the cork strip and how bold the Eiffel Tower looks on your masculine card. both wonderfully done!

Also, just saw that you're Moxie Fabber of the week! I am absolutely thrilled for you! You are truly an inspiring designer and so encouraging in your blog posts as well as your comments. I can't think of anyone more deserving. I am really honored to have "met" you! And, I can't stop smiling with you! :)

This is a great set, Virginia! Definitely a good take on the whole masculine/feminine thing! I especially love the "Merci" stamps on the feminine card and the shadow Eiffel towers in the background on the masculine one! :)

I love this challenge! I saw your stamp set before the cards and thought, "how the heck is she going to turn that stamp set into masculine??"! And you did it brilliantly of course! I think this challenge is showing us that a masculine cards don't have to be so hard after all!

Hi Virginia,
ich schreibe einfach mal auf Deutsch...
Auf Annis Blog las ich, dass du Deutschlang besuchst. Warnemünde ist ein Traum, geniesse das Wetter dort, egal ob die Sonne scheint oder es stürmt. Ich liebe diesen Ort.
Hab eine schöne Zeit, auch in der Traumstadt Berlin.
Liebe Grüsse

Wow, I love both cards and what you've done to each to make it its own gender. I like the cork you've added to the masculine card and the simple elegance of the feminine one.

You did double-time and came out a real winner, Virginia! I can't believe how you made the looks so different - love that cork strip, the washi, the amazing backgrounds - and, you know me - all things French get my heart a-flutter. These are simply magnifique!
