PTI MIM #261: Using Florals On A Masculine Project

Whose idea was this anyone? It's not as easy as Betsy made it look, but I had to take the challenge anyway. How can I not when there's a sweet gift certificate at stake? Anyway, you can see her video and challenge details on Nichole's blog here. Here's what I came up with just in time for some Fall masculine birthdays.

Can't wait to see what others came up with so I can CASE some masculine cards. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Kraft and Simply Chartreuse
Ink: Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, Canyon Clay, Terracotta Tile, Summer Sunrise and Dark Chocolate
Stamps: Painted Petals, Rosie Posie, Rosie Posie II, Spruce & Sprigs and Keep It Simple: Birthday
Dies: Painted Petals, Rosie Posie, Spruce & Sprigs and SU Top Note 
Other: Woodgrain Impression Plate, Sponge Dauber and SU Dimensionals


  1. LOVE your floral spray Kathy, and it looks fabulous on that woodgrained embossed top note die...just perfect for a masculine card!! :0)

  2. Kathy, what a wonderful, masculine looking card! Perfect for a Fall birthday with the green, brown and orange family colors you selected. The addition of the woodgrain background is the icing on the cake. Love it!

  3. Well Kathy, you made it look easy! This is a FABULOUS card.
    I LOVE every detail!!!

  4. I LOVE what you did here, Kathy. Masculine and autumn, richly gathered into a bouquet. Even the sentiment banner, so manly! Gorgeous!

  5. Oh Kathy, I just love this! I had to laugh when I read your comment and then came here to see that you struggled with this challenge too. Betsy did make it look easy. But your card has a great masculine feel to it and I love the design. The wood panel is a clever and perfect background. Love it!!

  6. Oh my goodness--the perfect Fall card for guys or gals! Pinned so I can CASE you!

  7. Well you certainly make it look easy with this handsome card! Love the wood-grain background and the stamp and dies you used, especially in these manly colors! Well done!

  8. More gorgeous neutral colors. What a pretty collection of natural elements, including woodgrain.

  9. Caught my eye on the gallery so just had to pop in to tell you how lovely this card is (had to PIN it!) ;-)
