It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a masculine card using Touchdown Trevor - R027 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Happy Birthday MVP - G174 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Both of my brothers were All Stars when they played Football in High-School a long time ago. Sports were always a big part of our lives growing up and for a lot of our family, they still are!!!
To make my card this week, the image and sentiment were both stamped using my MISTI and Memento - Tuxedo Black ink. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to die cut the image and then I coloured it in with Copic markers. For the background, I used my Cricut Explore to die cut the football and goal post using Hammermill - Premium Colour 100 lb. paper with an image from 3 Birds - Life's a A Party. Using pre-cut stencils for clouds, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Salty Ocean and a Picket Fence - Blending Brush to create them. I added in the grass with a Picket Fence - Blending Brush, finger dauber and Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Mowed Lawn. Black, brown and yellow cardstock were added behind the cut-out. The sentiment was cut with my cutter and the corners were snipped off with scissors. To give it an edge, I went around the cut sentiment with Copic marker - E23.
To assemble the card, I used The Paper Studio - Primary Simply Solids (4.25" x 5.5") for the base. 2-sided tape was applied to the back of the coloured background image and it was attached directly to the base. 3M VHB - 2 sided tape was attached to the back of the coloured image and back of sentiment and applied to the top of the card.
