Football (Soccer) Birthday Card using Stampin' Up's Circle Thinlits Flip Die.

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. 
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,

Stampin' hugs,
