Kenny K's Krafty Krew Blog Challenge 138, to make Easel Cards
Good Morning Peeps,
Its a cloudy damp morning but Im really hoping that it clears up today....
The card I decided to make for this Easel Card Challenge was also combined with a commission order for a 6 year old footie fan! Killing 2 jobs with one I thought it was very apt.
I used the soccer boy digi image coloured with promarkers in Toby's actual kit colours of Royal Blue and white. I'm really hoping I got the colours the right way round!!! His boots were coloured with a metallic marker pen to add a twist. I used a topper from a magazine and added scrabble type letters to spell out the boys name. The next bit to do was the stopper for the card so it would not fall over. To make this I stuck a 3cm piece of pearlescent paper (with Happy Birthday printed on it in silver) onto a stiff piece of card just slightly smaller and then added a piece of ribbon from my stash which, as you can see, has footballs printed on it!! I didn't want to tie a bow with being for a boy so I placed a piece under the main strip and then secured using extra strong double sided tape. This card will fold flat for postage & Ive yet to add a verse on the reverse of the slope that you can see in the first photo.
I am entering this card into the following blog challenge:
