Freehand Watercolor Card – Masculine Birthday Cards

Happy Monday to All!

Today’s blog post is all about masculine cards. I’m pretty sure that they are a nightmare of a any cardmaker. Personally I have some difficulties every time a need to make one. So I’m going to share with you some ideas.

The simplest way to do a masculine card is to use a common images or dies such as balloons, stars or gift boxes like in my case and add the “right” masculine colors. You can go blues, grays, violets and combine them with the neutral ones (black, white, cream ecc.) The colors would immediately give the right feeling to your creations.

Otherwise if you do a card for someone special you can use the person’s favorite colors or even the colors of the favorite football, soccer, baseball or basketball team like I did on the cards I posted above. The red and yellow is inspired by the AS Roma soccer team and the violet is the official Fiorentina’s soccer club color.

I think that this type of objects can also be easily hand drawn. So if you are a beginner and don’t have any stamps or dies at all, you can take a chance to start making cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
