It's His Birthday! A Masculine Card

Hi Everyone!
Our nephew's birthday is this week.
You know what I did?
Add "buy a birthday card" to my to do list.
Must have been a brain fart because why would I do that?
I have everything I need to create one.
Here is how I created this card.
To create the background I used the Well Rounded stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.
I only used one design off the stencil (bottom left hand corner-see stencil).
I added the design with gel medium and let it dry.
Then I used watered down acrylics to add a watercolor background.


To me it looks like little clouds.
The hot air balloon stamp is a Tim Holtz set called The Impossible.


I like to make cards that are not full of embellishments and won't cost a fortune to mail.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
