His and Her Cards for Teens/Young Adults

Hello friends!
Warning: photo-heavy post
It is my turn to share projects with you over Altenew Card Blog.

Today I have a fun projects to share. This time, I took out a few Altenew supplies and created two versions of cards-his and hers! With the same supplies and a slight variation, I created two versions (his and her) with teenagers/young adult in mind. Whether it's for birthday, graduation or encouragement purpose, a handmade card (plus a gift card to their favorite shop maybe!? ) is just the thing for any special young adults in your life.

 First up, it's a card for HER. I started out with Watercolor Dots Stamp set and created a multi-color background.

Our ink pads from Pocketful of Sunshine, Cherry Blossom and Deep Blue Sea are my source of inspiration. With my MISTI, I inked up a few dots each time. It is even easier if you use the Mini Cube Bundle! To add some shine, I embossed some of the dots with Antique Silver Crisp Embossing Powder.

For embellishments, I hand-stitched parts of the Creative Edges: Lace Die with silver thread. The sentiment "Yay" from "Party Time!" conveys a sense of happiness and excitement. Totally PERFECT!

Next up, it's the card for Him! I changed up the color scheme a bit. This time, I stamped with the Tropical Forest Oval Set to the mix. The best thing about creating cards for young adults or teenagers is to be as CREATIVE and FREE as you can.

I went on the "wild" side and stamped the dots in a slanted angle! I know, right!? I then ran the stamped images through my die cut machine with Creative Edge: Notebook Die.

  For good measure, I even added two pieces of Watercolor Stroke Washi Tape just to be "edgy"!  The sentiment was stamped in Rock Collection Oval Set and then embossed in Antique Silver Crisp Embossing Powder.To add some fun elements, I added Enamel Dots to the circle.

 I hope these two versions of his and her card give you some inspiration and make you smile.
