Advanced Warning: This is Picture Heavy Post, grab a cuppa ;-)
Yesterday was my friends son's 11th Birthday and he is football crazy. I have made many football birthday cards over the years and so I had to come up with something new and a bit different this year so I turned to the Circle Thinlits Die and some of the Adventure Bound DSP stack which, handily, has a few sheets of this fun grass paper - perfect for this card!
I started with a Garden Green tri-fold circle thinlits die cut and added panels of the grass paper.
Please see HERE for the tutorial on how to make this and also cut the paper to fit - plus 4 other designs with this die ;-)
To make these footballs I glued hexagon punched white and black card to crumb cake card, punched the "ball" out using the 2+1/2" circle punch and inked the edges with a sponge and some crumb cake ink
Some black chevron ribbon flags inside. This ribbon is retiring :-( but on the upside it is now just £4.13 a roll, but only while stocks last!
These banner punch outs are cut from some (retired) Christmas DSP and I added numbers using the Back to Basics Alphabet stamp set
A little collage of some more of the card including the back ;-)
All supplies are listed at the end of this post.
And it folds to fit a standard sized C6 envelope too (sorry this pics not great though!)
I glued the ribbon to these kebab sticks using my hot glue gun
and one last pic of the football to finish ;-)
Well, the birthday boy liked his card and there were smiles all round :-)
Thanks as ever for looking today,
