I never seem to have enough birthday cards on hand for those situations when you just need one, and find myself making them last minute. So my aim this year is to try make 2 or 3 birthday cards a month that are targeted at particular demographics, so that my stash of cards is plenty full when I need them.
Cards For Men
It Karen here and I made this card for my brother in law whose birthday it is in a few weeks time. I chose these colours as it matches his birthday invitations.
Cards for men can be tricky ones, but I quite like the colour palate that they let me work in, and the simplicity of style that they allow for.
Nicole here to share a birthday card for that difficult group - men! I actually quite like making cards for me, it appeals to the more simple and minimal style I enjoy creating in. I have a few tricks I use to make cards like this that I thought I would share.
Do you find male cards difficult? I have been playing with an orange, brown and buff colour palette for a male birthday card.
Collage style word cards are popular at the moment and using a collage word stamp makes them easy to make with out spending hours formulating your own on the computer.
Sometimes an image, like this Bloobel 'Bored at Work' stamp, that you think is not your usual style can be fun to work with, and can give you a break from the norm. It can allow you to make a project just for the fun of it, which is always nice!
