Hand Made Football Birthday Card

Hi Everyone, here's another card for a male recipient, with the World Cup only a month away it seemed appropriate to have another football themed card. You can personalise this card by using the colours of the recipients favourite football team and you could easily change the message to suit any occasion including Fathers Day, which falls on June 17th this year.

Start with a white 12.5cm square blank card. Cut a piece of green card to 12.1cm square, emboss with a polka dot embossing folder and adhere to the card blank with double sided tape.

To make the stripes cut three white and two red strips of card to 12.1 x.5cm, cut a piece of paper or thin card to 12.1 x 2.5cm and adhere the card strips to it. I used a glue stick for this so that I had time to position the strips and get them exactly lined up with each other before the glue set. Adhere the stripes a little way in from the left side of the card.

Die cut two circles one from red card and a smaller one from white card, die cut the football player from the centre of the white circle and adhere this on top of the red circle. Die cut a strip of grass from green card, position it across the bottom of the circles, lay the larger circle die over it and use stencil tape to attach the die to the grass strip. Run this through the die cutting machine to create a piece of grass that fits the bottom part of the circle perfectly. Adhere this to the circles with a glue stick. Adhere the circles to the card using 1mm foam pads on the right side of the circles to lift it up to the same level as the panel of stripes and double sided tape on the left side.

All that remains is the greeting, stamp it in white ink on to red card then fussy cut. Adhere this with a 3mm foam pad on the right side and a 1mm foam pad on the left to keep it level as it overlaps the striped panel.

There you have it, I am sure any football supporter would be pleased to receive this card which is pretty quick to make. Thank you so much for reading, it would be lovely if you could leave a comment to let me know what you think. All the products used are linked below.
