True Blue

Welcome to my new followers, Anne from Stamps and Paper and Marjeta from Marjetina ustvarjalnica.  Thank you for following me. 

Another blue and white birthday card today for a football fan, made in the team colours.  The football shirt has blue and white quarters and this is reflected in the design.

I started with a black card blank.  I cut a square of white card slightly smaller and drew pencil lines to mark in quarters.  Two blue and two white squares of card were embossed with a Crafts Too football embossing folder, and positioned along the pencil lines on the larger white square card.  This was then attached to the card blank.  I attached a circle of blue card in the middle and layered the white circle with the sentiment on foam pads.  The footballs are one of the dies from the Dixi Craft 'Football Circle & Corner'.  As the die only cuts the outline and embosses, I added the black parts with distress ink using a dauber through the apertures in the die, while the die cut was still in place. The footballs are raised up on foam pads.  Lots of snippets were used on this card, so I'll be off to play in The Playground.
