I like black!




Men's card today. How many times I hear men are the most difficult to make cards for? And how many times have I talked about it in this blog? Many a time. Yet I still feel that it is difficult for most cardmakers because the go to embellishments and colors are very feminine looking.

But that is not what I wanted to talk about today, oh no, it is about the backdrop that I use in the photos. As much as I like photography, taking pictures of my own work is boring for me. I have read and follow most tutorials on how to make this photos better. Honestly, little does work for me as I am pretty set in my ways.


So, now and then I try something different like a white backdrop. And then, I realize how much I like the black one. So back to black it is!

By the way the sentiments inside are two stamps from the Double Sayings set.


And this is a close up of the window from the front of the card. I made the aperture by using a 1 3/4" Whale of a punch -eksuccess-, the scallop is a 1 1/2" scallop circle from Woodware.

nice strong colours for a man's card..thats the way I like cards for men with simple striking design. I don't like all the gimmicky things like sports embellishments and peel offs...you get it just right!

oops, just deleted my comment by mistake-
Thanks for answering my query, Paula- much appreciated. I like the black background, it makes your cards stand out, suits the busy papers.And they are just right for men's cards. And these men's cards are so stylish- like them! Have a 75th birthday card to make this month for a very 'technical/engineer' friend, and he wouldn't like anything 'fussy', so these are the right sort of style- well timed!Thanks,
Regards, Cathy
