Masculine Birthday Card

Our eldest son is now only one year away from a 'big' birthday.  I went for a clean and simple masculine look with this year's card.
Stamp the Clarity Ribbon Happy Birthday stamp into the centre of a piece of Clarity stencil card in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink.
Add the Stars Wreath stencil to the card using masking tape to create a hinge at the top.
Add Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey Distress Oxides through the apertures avoiding the stamping and remove the stencil.
Colour the ribbon lettering using Faber-Castell Polychromos (#154, #156, #153).
Die cut the topper using the 6” nested squares die and a mat from black card using the corresponding nested squares picot die.
Add ‘son’ in the same ink as before using one of Barbara’s Relations stamps.
Working directly onto the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank, add further stencilling around the edges using the Christmas Stars Shape stencil and Peacock Feathers and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxides.
To finish, mat up the topper and add it to the front of the card.
