With it's monochromatic color scheme and clean & simple design, this birthday card using Another Great Year is the perfect card for a guy. (at least I hope my son thinks so!)
I stamped the image twice...once onto the Island Indigo layer stamped with the hardwood background and again onto a plain piece of Bermuda Bay card stock. Each time I embossed the image using Pool Party Embossing Powder. I cut out the Bermuda Bay banner and watercolored the letters and the shadowed areas using Island Indigo ink and my Aqua Painter.
I popped up the banners using Stampin' Dimensionals and finished off the card with Candy Dots in each corner from the Brights Collection.
Have a great day!
