Card - Football Frame

Hi, I've been making some cards for Chris' birthday on Saturday. This one is for Josh to give, and is made using the "Sports Mania" cartridge. I've used the football (sized at 5") with the cartridge's frame feature - welded two together and used the Hide Contour Feature so the back piece was plain.

I then cut a football in white using the shadow feature, and attached the cut-out pieces from the frame to layer for the stitching. I've also sponged with ink so the football looks like it's old and worn (just like Chris' well-used football).

As the DoubleMates cardstock is double-sided, the white is charcoal on the back. This then shows through with full effect on the inside of the card.

The little footballs are cut using the border feature - welding 4 images together - and highlighted with a white Souffle pen.

I thought I'd also give you a sneak peak at something I've been working on for Scrappy-Go-Lucky. Can anyone guess what it might be?

Till next time,
Luv, Tereesa.
