101 Years Young

Happy New Year to all my blogging friends! 
Wishing you all a great 2016. 

Anyone who has been following my blog for over a year may have seen the card I made HERE for the 100th birthday of an amazing lady. Well.... Kitty is 101 years young today and I still get to see her regularly, supporting our local football team.
I wanted to make a card in blue and white (our team colours), include something football related, keep it feminine and also with plenty of texture as Kitty doesn't see too well these days.  I decided on a box pop-up card.  The panels are embossed with a football embossing folder, with the two side flap in blue and white quarters, the same as on the team shirts.  Footballs were added, raised up on foam pads. The flowers were made with snippets, using three different punches and attached to strips of acetate.  I also added a few white Memory Box 'Chloe Stems' die cuts.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  5. 101!! Wow, what a fabulous age! Your exploding box card is absolutely wonderful Liz, I'm sure Kitty will love it. I really like how you have used the Chloe stems and other little flowers to pop out of the box, they look great.
    Cheers,

  12. As soon as I saw this I wondered if it was for the same lady who was 100 last year, and what a fabulous creation this is Liz and I'm sure Kitty will have loved it! Happy New Year and I'm looking forward to seeing lots of your great cards in the coming year. x
