Birthday Card for my Great Nephew

May and June are busy cardmaking months with five family birthdays!

Today, I am sharing the card I made for one of my great nephews. 
This year I decided to come away from the usual tractors and made
him a football themed card in West Ham colours who he likes.

I partly embossed the card base with the Crafters Companion Football
Crazy embossing f
older, and then used my Hougie board to emboss two lines.

I found a free football image which I printed on blue lightweight card
to use as a backing paper, which I matted onto white card with
the edges coloured with a claret Promarker. I attached it to
the card base using 3D foam.

I used a football die on black card, glued it to
some white card and hand cut, and then die-cut the number
in claret card to mount on top of the football.

The sentiment is computer generated.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
