The February kit I got from Studio Calico (the Front Row scrapbook kit) was full of yellows, blacks, greys and blues ... colors I don't tend to be drawn to. I'm more of a pinks and purples kinda gal. So, I put the kit to the side and worked with other supplies in my stash. Today, when I decided to make some cards that would be "guy appropriate", I remembered the kit and its unique color palette and pulled it out to take a look. Sure enough, it worked like a gem! Gender neutral cards in no time. (Edited to add: I showed these cards to my husband and told him they were "guy cards". He just laughed and shook his head. Apparently they still aren't manly enough for him. Back to the drawing board.)
That last card was made using a sketch posted over on the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog. You can view the sketch, and enter with your own card creation, here.
What's your trick for creating cards that are masculine or gender neutral? Please share! xo
