Today I have a little bit of Girly Girls AND Macho Mania for you! For this guys and gals hop; I thought it might be fun to take a look a the same card done up for either a guy OR a girl.
Let's face it; lots of us struggle with doing "guy" cards. But if you modify a few simple details; any card design can take on a masculine feel! So....here's a look at a card using the same basic layout, the same basic formula (saying as main image, all-over print, decorative strip), and also using the same saying - but one is decidedly masculine and one is definitely "girly". Take a look at both versions - let me know what you think!
- dark & neutral colors
- straight, sharp lines (decorative strip & saying cutout)
- natural elements (woodgrain & rope)
- simple metal studs accents
Full supply list & instructions for this design can be found in the SNS Art gallery here.
(click any photo for better view)
- light / pastel colors
- soft, rounded lines/ shapes (decorative strip & saying cutout)
- sparkling elements (glitter accents & stripes on decorative strip and on saying piece)
- pearl accents
Full supply list and directions for this version can be found in the SNS Art Gallery here.
Both cards use a saying from the great new Set 498 - Horses. I've been having a lot of fun playing with this new set. Did you see the colorful card I did from this set in my previous post? Be sure to check that out below or here. (Don't forget to come back here to finish off the hop though!) I think you're really going to love this set as much as I do!
Here's a peek at the whole set. Isn't it great?!
So, what do you think about my masculine and feminine versions of this card? Doesn't this make it seem so much easier to make any design appropriate for a guy or a gal? Let me know your thoughts before you hop on by (& that qualifies you for prizes too)! I always love to read and appreciate all your comments!!
Now hop on over to Shona's Blog for even more inspiration (yep, you arrived here from Shanna & are now headed on over to Shona's - no, that's not a typo lol!) Have lots of fun on the rest of the hop and I hope to see you again soon!
Until next time,
