I was asked, by a regular customer to the shop, to make a couple of cards for her. This is one of them (I'll show you the other one tomorrow) for her friend who plays for a ladies football team. The brief was lady footballer, yellow & blue and large (A4)and I think I came in on that brief pretty well! She was chuffed with it!
I used an Anita's A4 card and papers from my stash which, miraculously co-ordinated really well!
The layout is simple with two matted & layered panels. The footballer was cut from black textured cardstock and the strip cut from blue & yellow. I added a blue band to her ponytail and another football which was adhered with foam pads. The name was cut from patterned paper shadowed with blue and 'Happy Birthday' was cut from plain blue cardstock. Both sentiment & name were adhered with foam pads. I steered clear of a flower and added a 'goal' tag with a double bow instead, adhered to the top of the starry panel.
Football/Happy Birthday-Life's A Party
Thanks for looking!
