Happy Sunday everyone :)
Just wanted to upload the 70th male birthday card I sneak peeked the other day as it's Ray's birthday today and by now I hope he would have opened his card from his wife :)
Here's the card in full:
Ray's a huge sports fan, loves his cricket and Dagenham & Redbridge Football (did you notice the football strip), so I made the card using Stampin' Up! cardstock and accessories, with the help of Woodware Clear Stamps for the sports related stamps :) *Must* get myself
"Just Soccer" on P.38 for any cards that I might need to do in the future, football related, and perhaps "Just Tennis" too - both might come in handy and are only £10.95 each set!
By the way, in case you were wondering, the owl from "Forest Friends" was stamped, cut and stuck on the back of the card as I didn't think having the owl stuck on the front with all the cricket bats/balls/footballs etc would go!
This card is pretty big and it wasn't till I finished that I realised it wouldn't fit into a standard sized envelope, let alone an SU envelope! lol. So made one to fit and finished it with stamping, cutting and half sticking down three footballs on the back, so that the envelope flap could tuck underneath the three footballs to close.
Cardstock: Whisper White, 12x12 Textured Cardstock - Ballet Blue and Brilliant Blue.
Inkpad: Ballet Blue, Brilliant Blue and Close To Cocoa. Non SU: Memento - Tuxedo Black.
Accessories: 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon - Real Red, Crop-A-Dile, Jumbo Eyelets - Pewter, Sponge Daubers, Paper Snips, Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive, Craft Knife, Number Templates, Acryllic Block.
Card Size: Approx w: 9-3/4" x h: 8-1/2".
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day!
Bye for now,
