Football header

I've made another football card in our local team colours, this time a slider card.  I've lost count or how many blue and white cards I've made for  family and friends over the years! 
I started by covering a card blank with royal blue pearlised card.  I actually remembered to cut a big rectangle out of the middle of the blue card,  so I can use it for another project.  I think it's called 'gutting' and I usually forget to do it until it's too late!  Royal blue card seems really difficult to find and it's a colour I like to use a lot for football themed cards.  The stamp is an old wood mounted Francoise Read 'Footy Boy' stamp, coloured with Promarkers.  The stamp has a football roughly in the position where my football is, but as I wanted to make a slider card with the football being headed into the air from the footballer's head. I masked off the football on the stamp when I inked it and then just stamped the boy.  I used one of the dies from the MFT 'Surf & Turf' dies for the slider part, with a 'Spin and Slide' disc, a prize I won in The Playground a few months ago.  I put a football peeloff on a stiff piece of white card and fussy cut around the football.  The sentiment is computer generated and I finished off my card with three Card Candi.

  1. A great football themed card. I also have trouble sourcing what I call 'real' blue card - so much of it is aqua or turquoise in tone, irritating!!
