Father's Day Cards

Hello Everyone


My Dad and Father in Law are both football fans, and with the world cup on too I though a Football, (soccer), card would be perfect for them for Father's Day. Time to use the Just Soccer stamp set.
I learned how to make this card from Elaine who gave us a great demonstration at a training event in the spring.
As you open the card, the ball image emerges - I love it!

I made the boots glossy with Crystal Effects and tied them to a brad with linen thread 'laces'.
Team colours were important too. My Father in Law supports Southampton, so his colours had to be Real Red and Whisper White - my Dad is a West Ham fan, so it was Bravo Burgandy and Tempting Turquoise for his card.
Hope you like!

  1. These marquee cards are so clever. Wish I'd remembered about them for Father's Day, I love to make engineered cards for men, they love to work them out. Fab cards.
