I wanted to show you a special card today for my gorgeous big boy. I have probably bored you enough about his Football pursuits BUT well it is his 17th birthday today so I have to show you the card I made for him. I have had a number of people share this idea with me over the last few months. Thanks so much my friends. So I only just remembered to use this idea for his card. This idea originally came from the blogosphere somewhere (sorry I can’t remember where) but recently it was on Pinterest.
I used Cherry Cobbler which is close to his club colours since I don’t have Bravo Burgundy anymore. The ‘Fence’ was created by brayering the inside of the Stripes Embossing Folder with Soft Suede and running Whisper White Card through it. The card was too wide to fit so I cut it in half before embossing it and then joined it together on my Old Olive Card base. (See you don’t even notice do you???). I added a strip of Soft Suede card along the top of the fence.
Punches I used for the Football Dude:
1 3/8″ circle, 1 1/4″ circle, 1″ circle, 3/4″ circle, Word Window and 2-step Owl Punch. I did a little cutting of some of the circles to adapt them to what I wanted. The Helmet cage took the most work. It is not quite right but it is OK, although Glenn and Josh thought it was a cool beard!!!!!????? The stamp sets I have used are ‘Great Sport’ for the football and ‘Itty Bitty Banners’ for the greeting.
I hope you like my cool dude anyway.
HAPPY 17th BIRTHDAY JOSH!! xx
Here are my gorgeous two this morning. Love you both xx
