Card: Masculine Birthdays

March 05, 2014

Some people have a really difficult time with masculine cards and I am not afraid to admit that I am indeed one of those people. However, I am here to help my fellow struggling card makers with some key tips for making masculine (ish) birthday cards without using boats, cars, or fishing as a theme!

This first card is quite simple, guys typically love simplistic things. Tip #1 If your guy doesn't have a favorite hobby (like the typical fishing, cars or golfing), he has to have a favorite color! 

Tip #2 If said man doesn't have a favorite color or you don't have time to ask some go to colors (for me at least) are olive green, burnt orange, and brown. 
There are several other colors that will work for masculine cards, but since these are for people I don't really know (for those of you who do not know all of the birthday cards I am making are going to a local assisted living facilities) keeping it simple as for color made sense. 

As you can see for this card I added a lot more than on the first card as well as using the previously mentioned colors: olive green and burnt orange.

Tip #3 use smaller simple patterns or one bold pattern. Usually this depends on the person, so use your personal judgment for your birthday card.

I hope these cards inspire you to create some masculine cards for the men in your life today! Thanks for stopping by and if you loved these color combos and use them yourself comment below and you might be featured on here!
