Hello again, Technique Tuesday fans!
Welcome to another day of masculine card making inspiration!
You may not think of guy cards as cute, but we've got Linda Barber here today to show you otherwise. Check out this cute birthday card she made.
"Cards for guys are usually about sports/plaid/dark. I wanted to create a bright colored happy card that's good for any celebration. I used a neutral gray background to tone it down a little, because let's not get too crazy. Don't want my kids telling me, "that's too cute", which I've been told before. Like there's something wrong with cute... "
By toning her card down slightly with the neutral background and sticking with masculine color scheme for the balloons (orange, yellow, blue, green and white), Linda definitely achieved a fun card worthy of being given to a guy! I imagine this card would be a great one to give to a young boy or teen-ager.
Speaking of cute cards, here's an adorable one from the past by Birgit Edblom. This is such a cute baby card!
And while the onesie and bird stamps from the Bundle of Joy stamp set scream cute, Birgit made her card very "boy'ish" with her usage of blue ink to color the onesie in. And that dark colored hanger the onesie is hung on helps maintain the masculine feel of this card.
Have you had a chance to check out the Guy Gallery yet? We've got even more great ideas for cards (and a few scrapbook pages too) for dads, sons, grandfathers, brothers, boyfriends and more.
