When is it right to add pink onto a mans card? Yep I said pink… well I think I can get away with this one. What do you think?
Oh and a bit of trivia for you from Wikipedia.
In Western culture, the practice of assigning pink to an individual gender began in the 1920s or earlier. An article in the trade publication Earnshaw's Infants' Department in June 1918 said: "The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl." From then until the 1940s, pink was considered appropriate for boys because being related to red it was the more masculine and decided color, while blue was considered appropriate for girls because it was the more delicate and dainty color, or related to the Virgin Mary. Since the 1940s, the societal norm was inverted; pink became considered appropriate for girls and blue appropriate for boys, a practice that has continued into the 21st century.
Now onto my card, Carmen Electrafying by Kenny K
Coloured with Copic markers teamed with Papers from Shery k Designs , I made my own card candy to match the designer papers and used a vitage cream satin ribbon and navy button, Nestabilities Label 4 distressed with navy ink and a whimsey ticket stamp to finish.
