Over the Hill

I made this card for my uncle's birthday and am entering the Seize the Birthday 'Make us Laugh' challenge.  I'm also entering the Dies R Us Challenge 'For the Men/Boys in our Life', the Cardz 4 Guys 'Clean and Simple' challenge, The Male Room 'No Designer Paper' challenge and the Bugaboo Weekly Challenge 'Anything Goes'.

6" x 6" white matt card blank
Bugaboo 'Gus Birthday - Over the Hill' digi stamp
Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Stackables' die
Kars tan embossing mat
White and green matt card, dark blue textured card

I resized the digi and sentiment and used Word to merge them into one image.  This was printed onto white card before being die cut and embossed with the largest stitched die.  I then coloured the image with Promarkers.  The coloured panel was layered onto green matt and dark blue textured card before being attached to the card front.
