I often um and ah about labelling my card designs specifically for men or women. Cardmakers often talk about cards for men or cards for women, but I try to be a bit nebulous about it, if I can, when I share my makes. Because, well, I will be honest, I often LOVE cards that have supposedly been made with men in mind and sometimes I even love them more than some cards that are labeled for women. So, really, do we have to label them?
Although, having said that, this card is definitely a card for a male person, I mean look, it even has his name on it! I can’t really get away with being nebulous about it. This is a man’s card, made for a man by a women, so I’m still not really sure if a man likes it or what makes it a ‘man’s’ card, but I like it and I hope that is enough!
And for any Marvel fans out there can you guess the superhero inspiration for the design for this one? Do you see it? I mean it is obvious right? Answers on a postcard to…
I do have some other cards for men using die-cuts, that I made for the same commission, to share with you over the next few weeks and again, I know they are for men as they have their names on them too!
So what makes a man’s or a women’s card for you? What sort of themes or colours do you go for or avoid when you design a card for a man or a women? Or perhaps I should ask what are your favourite cards that you receive and then let me know if you are male or female!
Oh and if you can’t see which Marvel superhero, shout and I will let you know.
Catch you later.
