Male Quilt Card

As anyone who follows my blog knows, I often need to make football themed cards with blue and white quarters.   I think of the Die-namics 'Quilt Square Cover-Up' die being more appropriate for female birthday cards, so I set myself the challenge of using it for a masculine birthday card, which I needed this week.
The background is embossed with a Sizzix 'Dots' embossing folder.  I used a MD 'Stitched Rectangle' die for the sentiment to match the stitched pattern on the quilt die.  I added a football, raised up in foam pads.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  3. This works fantastically Liz and although you make a lot of football related cards they are always so varied and I think the patchwork looks looks great here. x

  16. Hi Liz,
    what a wonderful card and such a great design too.
    When I saw this wonderful card I remembered that I too have a die like that which I won in Mary's candy.
    So I must use it soon.
