This was such a fun card to put together! I loved the color combination – I thought it made a fabulous masculine birthday card – but if it’s not to your taste, make sure you check out my Color Combination Library for lots of different color palette ideas!

I stamped the main focal image on a scrap of Basic White cardstock and colored it in using the following blends:

  • Dark Pumpkin Pie for the kayak
  • Light Night of Navy for the oars and jacket
  • Light Mint Macaron for the sweat shirt sleeves
  • Smoky Slate Light for the hat & oar handles
  • SU 900 for the skin

Once colored, I then fussy cut it out with my Paper Snip scissors. Super simple and such a fun card to create!
