Soooo, today I would like to share with you a card I made for my hubby's nephew a couple of weeks ago.
I made this with a large 8x8 blank and Football Dan digi from Digistamp Boutique.
I coloured the image using Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs and I coloured the football (or soccer to the non-UK out there) strip claret and amber, as those are the Bradford City colours as all my husband's family support Bradford - I've not quite figured out why yet.
I used the same green gingham paper to die-cut letters to spell out Dilly's name, and attached these under the image.
To finish the card, I used shrink plastic to make three tiny footballs, which I attached in the top right-hand corner. I made these by tracing the football from the image with a black marker, cutting out the footballs, which happened to be the perfect size for me to use my circle punch with, and then used my heat gun to shrink.
I can make this card to have the colours of any team on the strip and any name on the bottom.
I have also decided to add these to my Etsy shop.
I'm going to make some more of these for my craft fair this coming weekend, with probaby Leeds United colours, as that is where we live, and son/dad/brother, rather than the personalised name. I am also going to make some rugby cards I think, again with Leeds colours. I'll keep you posted.
I have been neglecting my challenge entries recently, so I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
