Manly Birthday

I decided to create my own background using one stamp and three colors. I did not want to get fancy. I also wanted a more manly kind of card. This was my result. What do you think? 

   Work of Art
   Perfect Punches

   Basic Black A-2
   Very Vanilla 5-1/4 x 4 (2), Scrap

   Archival Basic Black
   Dapper Denim
   Emerald Envy
   Real Red


   Extra-Large Oval Punch

First, I created my background using one stamp and three colors. I stamped on a diagonal from top left to bottom right using Dapper Denim. I then stamped above these using Emerald Envy, followed by Real Red. 

I then stamped on the bottom of the card front using Real Red and followed by Emerald Envy. 

Note that you must clean your stamp between each color.

I then stamped my sentiment and punched it, using the Large-Oval Punch. You can change the sentiment to suit your need. I attached it using dimensions.

Lastly, I adhered the Very Vanilla to the card front. I added the other panel to the inside of the card.
