If you happened by my blog last Monday I shared a male cards in my ‘Die-cut Cards for Men’ blog post, as well as my general anxiety about calling things either male or female! This week I have another share from the same set of cards that I made for a commission earlier in the year. It is also a male card, and I am still conflicted about calling it that but I do feel better by the fact that it again has the man in question’s name on it, so I can’t really call it anything else!
I’ve gone for a simple design again for this card, but well, I think that is the way I role, particularly when I am trying to get things done for deadlines! Also I quite like the challenge of designing with very few elements and when you have a ‘busy’ paper like the one I used for this range of cards, you can get away with letting the papers speak for themselves.
Die-cutting is perfect for this type of card and I’ve used a star die with the Stitched Rectangles from My Favorite Things Die-namics range. There is a little bit of dimension as I have used a thin foam pad to stick the shapes to the card front but I tried to keep it flat to keep the cost down for the client if they wanted to send it by post.
Come back next Monday for another male card in this range.
