Soccer Greetings


This card is a 'mistake' - I was making it for an order, but realised just before I assembled it that it was the wrong sport.... but I assembled it anyway and it goes into my 'stash', but this time with a name on it, ready for an upcoming birthday.

The sentiment is stamped on a die cut using a set of 'el cheapo' stamps I bought years ago - I have not really used them, and I was pleased with how they stamped.

The finishing touch was a soccer ball that was printed off from an image on G##gle Images.

I chose the patterned paper as soccer can take a talented player all over the world - it is from an Amy Tangerine stack.

I am really happy with this card, and am linking it to:

Thank you for visiting my blog - may your day be blessed
