My Dresser Cards

Hello Everyone

I have seen a number of these dresser cards online. I got my instructions from the wonderful Jackie Topa who's blog is well worth a visit.

The one we made was a football, (soccer), card for the boys. I decided to make it a male card as it is while since we did one in class and I try to do non-girly stuff sometimes! LOL


I used the retired Just Soccer stamp set - although I could have used the similar current version called Goal. The background is stamped with the large Sanded background stamp, the pennant flag is from Party This Way and the designer paper is from Woodland Walk. Our local team Southampton plays in red and white stripes so this ribbon is perfect - although I offered an alternative colour for those whose men folk foolishly support someone else. :)

Now if you want to see a more cutesy version of this card, this is the one I made first...


...OK how cute is that? It was made especially for my lovely downline and friend Nina and her family to celebrate the birth of her second little girl Isabel. The baby-grows are from a wheel called Baby Tees. It went with a little gift set...






...and yes I did spell Isabel's name wrongly! Here is a close up of the paper booties..



...love those self adhesive pearls!

Well that was a lot for one post - give me time to breathe and I will be back with more soon.
