Happy Monday to you all! Melissa, here today showing my version of a masculine Valentines Day card!
I know masculine cards intimate some card makers, including myself, so I asked my hubs to tell me what made a masculine card. I'll share his hints after the photo.
Ok, so here's the good stuff-man approved tips:
- No BOWS! If you must tie something pretty on the card, consider hemp or twine and only tie in a knot.
- KISS-Keep It Simply Silly (or Stupid, depending, haha!). Seriously, masculine cards are most likely clean & simple (CAS). So double practice points for trying masculine, you get to practice CAS also. Whoot!
- Think graphic, shapes, straight lines and more rustic embellies like staples, metal brads, etc when you're designing for a guy.
- And guys only glance at the card, so don't break a sweat!
I hope you'll find making masculine cards easier now :)
