Alternative Colours – Masculine Cards
Today’s video is a two-for-one using the Chunky Hearts Panel and some alternative colours. I’ve seen this panel used in a variety of ways, but I wanted to use it with a watercoloured piece after a few swatches on my desk kept catching my attention.

ALTERNATIVE COLOURS – MASCULINE CARDS
I love these earthy colours and you see them a lot on social media, graphic design and home decor. They may not be the traditional colours for a card using hearts, but it is nice to veer away from the norm. Although these cards could be used for Valentine’s day, they are adaptable enough to be used all year round with that sentiment. The earthy colours and non-fussy sentiment combination make these great guy cards too. I always find it harder to make guy cards, but I think these could pass the test.

Summary of the project which gives all the views of the card in one photo :D I’d love if you pinned and called by on Pinterest.
Masculine colors for sure. Orange and Blue are the official colors of the Florida Gators football team and men especially love these so would make a perfect card. Your idea is wonderful for making masculine cards and it opens knew windows of inspiration for making ‘team’ colored cards for men! Thank you so much.
Gorgeous cards Debby and you can use those awesome colours for sure for masculine cards.
Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration, stay safe and have a wonderful day.
