Boy and Girl Holiday Cards It is almost over, and I have so enjoyed this class. I really appreciated having 1 day between lessons. I did not feel so rushed with my homework. 

I made two very similar cards. I changed colors, cut out shapes, and sentiment fonts to lean a bit more to the feminine or the masculine. The long die cut on the boy's card had all the hearts removed and replaced with star shapes.  The girl's card I removed 1 start shape and replaced it with a heart.  

What do you think? Is one more boyish than girly?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. These are both so cute, Cat! Glad to hear you are enjoying your class,it looks like fun! I think the heart card does look more girly,probably the gorgeous hearts and the scalloped heart lend a more feminine feel!

  2. i LOVE those border dies! SO CUTE!

  3. Awwhh, these are just so adorably sweet, Cat!
    I think they could both go either way.

    Sure looks like you had lots of fun doing your homework for this class.

  4. I love how you made each of these cards so special, Cat! Great idea to add stitched lines around the star and scallops around the heart...perfect for each gender!

  5. Absolutely--the blue one is more boyish & both are great! Love these, Cat!

  6. These are super fun! Love both versions!!

  7. Love the border dies and colors you picked. Nailed it regarding His or Hers.

  8. These are such cool looking cards. I love the brightness of white and a bold colour and the clever design you could tweek for any occasion.
