Round Hexagon Football Punch Art Card

by Joanne James17. November 2013 19:43

Another lovely day today, despite the miserable grey weather. I spent the morning at the swimming pool watching Rebecca train, followed by piano practice for both James Juniors, then lunch, more swaps for convention, a trip to the garden centre and then an hour or so in the garden planting some late winter baskets and pots and refilling our bird feeders - we are even more keen to look after our feathered friends this winter, as we have a new blue tit who seems to have made his home in our bird box and uses it every night to sleep in.

So, on to today's card! Yesterday was my nephew's birthday. He is now 11 years old (where did that time go?!) and another football-mad boy. Having just recently acquired a hexagon punch, I was keen to have a go at making a football as I've seen lots of cards like this on Pinterest. I was so pleased with the result I decided to make it into a shaped card using the largest of the circle framelits:

I simply punched the black and white hexagons and stuck them in a pattern onto Gumball Green card, then cut this out with a circle framelit and mounted it on the largest circle framelit, having cut this one by folding the card and cutting out just above the edge of the circle to create a hinge. A simply sentiment from the hostess set 'Express Yourself', some linen thread and done. Another simple yet effective card, with a definite masculine feel.

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

You are welcome Sue. Hope you find lots of other ideas for male cards on my blog - I have a 6 year old son, so am often making cards for little boys and trying to make them all a little different to the last one! This card is great because it's just so quick and the punch is perfect for football patterns!
