Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #4

I like to play along with the Paper Dolls. Why? Because they're such a nice bunch! And they have fun challenges . . . although I found this one, to make a masculine and feminine version of the same card CHALLENGING! I decided to go embarrassingly basic, which seemed to work as you can certainly tell which one is which! :-D I used a basic-sized card, the Mat Stack Die #1, the sentiment, "Thank You" and buttons & trim on both, switching up the color scheme and "feel." Not my best work, but I did enjoy stretching my comfort zone.

Beautiful cards! I like the idea of masculine and feminine version of the same card challenge. You have done a wonderful take on the challenge, Jill!

Great job on your challenge ........ I think both thank you notes turned out GREAT!!!

Dana said...

These are really striking, even if you call them basic Jill. I love the simple BG with the intricate die and center focus...awesome.

Oh gosh..yeah, that would have been a hard challenge. I can't really think of my cards in two different ways cause its more than just about changing the colors and calling it masculine. You did a great job here, though. Both cards totally stamd alone and it doesn't feel like you just changed the colors and called it a day. I love them both!

I think you did a great job on the challenge! It's so hard to make masculine cards when we are so use to adding girly things to our cards. Great job!

Diane Jaquay said...

These are really great! Love your use of the mat stack 1 dies with the buttons and twine/lace!

Christi said...

I think both cards are terrific.

Lorraine said...

You did a great job on the challenge. Love love the deep pink on your girl card and the baseball buttons on the boy card! Definitely can tell the difference!
