Feminine & Masculine Cards

The Butterfly Card was made with SEI papers, and a $1 stamp from the Michael's Bargain Bin. I love the glitter and glitz of the background paper. I stamped the sentiment on plain white cardstock with Memento Cocoa Brown Ink. I inked the edges with a Creamy Brown Cat's Eye Chalk from ColorBox. I cut some butterflies from the patterned paper to accent the sentiment. For the accent piece I cut a butterfly from the patterned paper and inked the edges using the same Creamy Brown chalk. I layered that using glue dots on other coordinating papers.

I love how it turned out.

For this card I wanted a more masculine feel. These papers are also from SEI. I used a Sketch by my friend Abby over at Scrappin-n-Chattin' group on yahoo. I inked the edges of my patterned paper strips using Chestnut Roan Creamy Chalk Inks from ColorBox. I used another $1 stamp from Michael's for the sentiment, and I stamped it on the coordinating cardstock from this line. I used my Making Memories Slot Punch to cut the ribbon slit in the card fold. I used Scor-Tape to secure the ribbon then tied it with coordinating twine. I used my Copic Markers to fill in the parts of my stamped image that didn't stamp well. I inked the edge of the stamped image with my Chestnut Roan chalk, and then mounted it on a coordinating cardstock sticker using a pop-dot. The epoxy accent is also from SEI. I like this for a great simple masculine card.
