Cardz 4 Guyz - Football Crazy

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope your week is going well. I am now back at school but as someone was telling me at the weekend it is not long and we will have a bank holiday to enjoy.

This is my Guest Design Team card for Cardz 4 Guyz  the theme for challenge 67 is  Football Crazy and anyone can join in so why not have a go. I would like to enter it for Challenge 24 at Crafting Musketeers which is "It's a Man's World".


I started with the LOTV image. I found an image of a football pitch to use as the background. This is a tent fold card made from an A4 sheet scored in half .


Although the image was pre-printed I did add some more ink to it  and I cut it  out with a die to make it the size I wanted. This makes it easier to make the mats for it  as well. The football sticking out from behind the image came from a failed attempt to print a background but the ink ran out on the whole sheet but the football was OK.


I added the sentiment to the side of the image but it seemed like there was too much empty space. I had received the free alphabet dies with a Tattered Lace Magazine and I decided to cut out some words in white to fill the space.


I am pleased with how this card turned out. I will have to think of someone to send it to.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
