Boyish Birthday


Do you find that you struggle to make male orientated cards or projects. Those where a flowery Designer Series Paper (DSP) just won’t suit the recipient. As a mum of three children, two of those being boys, I sometimes find myself struggling for a theme to make a card for them. Now they’re no longer babies, it’s even harder to make a more male orientated card.

I’ve found that as long as you have the right colour combination, the card can suit both males and females – unless of course, you’ve got OTT on the flowers etc. This card could be made in any colour combination to suit both males and females.

This one is made with Pacific Point and Smokey Slate – two colours which I think go brilliantly together and follow the male theme I wanted. As a lot of my Designer Series Paper (DSP) is flowery or Christmas, I used an embossing folder to add a bit of texture and design to the card front. Then finished it with some candles and a ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment from the xx Stamp Set.

What colour combinations do you use for your male inspired projects?

Best Wishes,
