 Hi everyone! Charlotte here, and today I am sharing a clean and simple, one layer birthday card with an underwater theme.

Other materials:
White card base
Inks in teal, medium blue and dark blue
Alcohol markers
Nuvo Drops in Sea Breeze
Stamping tool
Acrylic block

First stamp the Seahorse stamp directly onto an A2 card base using a dark teal ink.
Using an acrylic block and a medium blue ink, stamp the Concentric Circles stamp three times onto the card base, creating a visual triangle with the layout.
After removing the card base from the stamping tool, use pale teal shades of alcohol markers to color the seahorse.
After completing the coloring, return the card to the stamping tool and stamp the Happy Birthday Phrase using a darker blue ink.
Finally embellish by adding some Nuvo Drops in Sea Breeze. Follow the flow of the stamping when choosing the position of the drops, work in odd numbers, and again create a visual triangle.

I hope you enjoyed my blog post! Clean and simple cards can be such fun to make, and beautiful detailed stamps such as these can really go along way to making a one layer design stand out.
