His & Hers - Online Card Class Day 1

Great first day of class for the new Online Card Class focusing on His & Her cards.  My cards were made using a combination of tips from the instructors today. After viewing five videos of tutorials  and tips I am feeling very inspired!
I used a pretty simple layout, using similar colors, but changing them up a bit as appropriate.
One of the tips we learned was to use different fonts in the sentiment for feminine vs masculine cards. Men like plain, bold fonds, while women a little more frilling and curly. PTI has us covered on all bases!

For both cards I used patterned Paper from Basic Grey Kissing Booth 6x6 pad, PTI card stock, ink and Real Wood Veneer paper called Sticky Barc: Cherry that I die cut with a Half & Half die. For the female card I stained the wood veneer with a Hibiscus Burst ink using a sponge applicator.  For the masculine card I die cut "Birthday" from the veneer and filled the negative with another die cut from Dark Chocolate. 

Stamp Sets: Think Big Favorites #24, Turning a New Leaf, BB: Woodgrain and Wonderful Words: Birthday.

Thanks for stopping by!

I really like these cards, great examples of his and hers. I struggle to use pattern papers and I really found your cards inspiring.
