My son-in-law's dad's birthday is December 17, so I made him a card. I've said it before, I have the hardest time making masculine cards. Here's what I came up with.
Starting with the first layer, I cut the dark brown cardstock with Spellbinders Labels Eight, one of my favorite of the labels series. I layered that with a rectangle cut from Classic Rectangles Small; I rounded the corners with my trusty corner rounder. The scene is from Stampin' Up!, and I colored it with BIC Mark It! markers. These are alcohol based markers, like Copics, but much less expensive. I love how the coloring came out! The Happy Birthday in the upper right corner was cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles Small and Large. I used Pop Dots to attach it to the card.
