Hi There! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had my in-laws visit us for a short while and it was good to catch up with them and share all our holiday news with them too.
August is a busy month for me for male birthdays! I know – I can hear you all groaning from here! Men’s cards can be trickier than ladies, but the key is to stick to a fairly neutral colour scheme and hold back on the embellishments – you know you don’t like to use them anyway, but just have them to stare at and stroke – don’t you? Perhaps that’s just me!
Anyway, so the new autumn paper in the upcoming Holiday catalogue is perfect for this:
- Lots of neutrals tones, but interesting patterns make the Sweater Weather Papers perfect for male cards
- You want interest though, so the new Burlap Ribbon gives you some great texture without being ‘girlie’!
- A simple birthday sentiment is sometimes all you need – check out the Label Love stamp set and matching Artisan Label punch
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card. Come back soon for more sneak peeks plus a really simple yet effective technique Birthday Card.
