Football Mad Boy's Birthday Card

by Joanne James13. October 2013 20:57

Well, the weather here has been dreadful here but yesterday our monster home-grown pumpkin was harvested during one of the day's few dry spells (photos to follow!) and today we went to the theatre to watch 'Dinosaur Zoo', so all in all not a bad weekend. Today I've a change from Christmas cards for you: I thought I would share a birthday card commission I made for someone whose birthday it is today. Another football-mad Chelsea fan, so here's what I came up with:

 I used my 'Great Sport' football stamp to decorate a background base panel, then created a central panel with some great football paraphanelia: a trophy, a shirt with the recipient's player number (not age, as one of my eagle-eyed offspring was quick to point out!) and a football and finished the panel with some co-ordinating bunting, Chelsea blue, of course.

If you're a stamper and wondering where I got the trophy stamp from, it's from one of the stamps in the 'Tag It' set. I've just covered the wording with a DSP 'ribbon' so that it fits with my football theme.

Hope you like the card; tomorrow I'll be sharing another birthday card; until then, happy stampin'!
