This week, Jen challenged us to make a masculine and a feminine card using the same stamps. Hop on over to the Paper Dolls blog for the details and to see her samples.
Picking a stamp set that could be used for both masculine and feminine cards was no easy task for me. I eventually chose to work with the Wise Owl set.
Here is my feminine card. I got the idea to paper-piece my owl from the ever talented Nichole Heady. You can see her original post here.
Here's a close-up of my owl. I used black skittles for the eyes.
I kept the inside sweet and simple. It was easy since this stamp set came with an adorable matching mini owl.
Here's the masculine card. For those of you within my age group, doesn't the rick rack design kind of remind you of Jughead's hat? You know, the guy from the Archie comics? If you don't know what I mean, be grateful! lol!
Here's a close-up...
...and the inside.
