Hope you are all having a good weekend. We are visiting my sister and her family this weekend as it is my nephew's birthday. My apologies for not being around and visiting much the last few days. Work has been really busy and with being away this weekend time has ran away from home. Will be back home tomorrow so should be able to catch up with some of you tomorrow evening.
Anyway, I have just sneaked a few minutes away to post this card. I made this for my sister and her hubby to give to my nephew for his birthday. As he is football mad I knew it had to revolve around football.
The three toppers were part of a sports themed topper sheet that I got from my local craft shop. I simply cut them out and matted them onto coredinations cardstock. The image of the football cup was from a fab male stamp set that I have (can't for the life of me remember the name). I stamped and embossed it and then coloured it with promarkers. The wording on the tag was also from the same stamp set, again stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder. The edges were coloured using distress ink. I cut out some stars from various shades of glitter card and some little footballs from scraps of football paper that I had.
Thankfully James, my nephew, loved the card.
