Men & Flowers? Flowers & Men?
So many of you have the issue of trying to do masculine cards. Well I have tossed the stereotypes away. I created a card for a male coworker that was leaving and ...wait...yes.....yes, I did it! I used FLORAL PAPER. OMG! Did I break the rules or what?
What I decided is that flowers can be OK if the coloring and the texture are correct. So what I used was only one jewel. I used earth accents, these pine cone items I found outside. Try to tone down the fancy script, use simple fonts, and limit them.
Take a trip outside, think about leaves, twigs, maybe even pebbles. The point is have your accents add the strong touch, use darker, warm colors.
What do you think, leave a comment, let me know if I have missed the mark so I don't do it again. Looking forward to reading your comments.
