Color Coordinates: Birthday Boy
Hi everyone, it’s Shari here with a Color Coordinates for you. I know masculine cards and colors are the most difficult so I’ve put this one together to use as a combination for young boys and toddlers.
I’ve used four main colors for my card and have suggested a fifth color (Sparrow) for a little bit older boy.
Stripes are perfect to create patterns for gender neutral and masculine cards. I’ve stamped my colors onto die cut balloons using the Misti tool and grid paper to help me keep everything aligned.
To help suspend my die cut messages, I’ve die cut small stars which I colored with Duckling ink using a sponge dauber. I used small pieces of foam squares to get the height I needed.
I have created a video that you can watch below or on our YouTube channel.

I usually think bold colors for masculine cards — thanks for showing that is not always the case.
