Another Football themed card.
This time for our Grandsons other Granddad
whose Birthday it was last week.
Again I made the card in his local teams colours.
The sentiment is a large word stamp by Woodware.
I started off wih a large offcut of white card stock
and glued different widths of snippets of design paper across
the card to fill.
Football paper is a digi by
'Print Fun Factory' a shop on Etsy.
I used bright blue cardstock for the base
and adhered the football design paper to the front
having first stamped the clear stamp onto it
so that I knew the wording would be centered.
I then stamped again onto the card of glued down stripes
and fussy cut out each letter separately. Some I had to stamp
more than once as the letters overlap.
I then proceeded to glue onto the stamped image making
sure I had the correct letters overlapping each other .
I can't deny it wasn't fiddly but the finished result was worth it.
Happy Birthday spelt out in his teams colours.!
I then found as I had made the card a non standard size
I had no envelope to fit it so had to make one
which I decorated with some strips of the football paper
on the front and on the inside flap.
