Pretty Petals is Masculine

To start with I want to tell you about the Pretty Petals dsp stack.  The name sounds feminine and floral right?  But actually I've been having a play with this stack and I've found a lot of its papers are perfect for masculine cards. 

How many of you have skipped over this set when it comes to masculine cards or because you're not a floral person?  The colours in this stack are Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Pacific Point and Very Vanilla.

Here are some cards that I've made this week for my Dad's and Father-in-Law's birthdays using the Pretty Petals stack:
This one is a corner flip card.  They are quite easy to do, despite looking complicated and the Very Vanilla makes a nice change from Whisper White. 

I have stamped the car in Old Olive to co-ordinate with the dsp and I've used Old Olive cardstock as a layer to bring it all together.  This Guy Greetings stamp set is available in Wood-mount, Clear-mount and Photopolymer. 

This is the second card I made, this time using Pacific Point as the main colour.

Thanks to Julie Kettlewell for the idea.  When you pull the ribbon the tag slides out and it looks like the car is driving along - my youngest daughter had fun with this one:

Then when the tag is pulled out far enough you see the hidden message.  In this case I have added the word 'Dad' so the card reads 'Happy Birthday Dad' when the tag is out:

The Pretty Petals stack also has a co-ordinating cardstock pack you can buy to go with it.  You get 8 sheets each of Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron and Old Olive.  The base colour is Very Vanilla so be sure to grab a pack of that as well. 

I hope you've enjoyed seeing these cards and please let me know if you'd like to see some more of these papers from the Pretty Petals stack.
