Football Commissioned card

Good Afternoon all, hope your all enjoying your Sunday. Im taking a break from cleaning the house to have a spot of lunch and catch up on some blog hopping and wanted to share with you a card I made on Friday. It was a commissioned card for a friend I used to work with. It is her sisters 21st Birthday this weekend and she is a massive Evertonian so she wanted a footy card, however I have made everton cards for her in the past so wanted something a bit different and a bit special. Let me know what you think.

I used My Craft Studio to resize and tile the everton badge image whifh i got from google images, this makes up the backing paper. I then printed out the badge 5 times and cut it up to make a decoupaged badge for inside the rosette. The rosette is made with stripes of ribbon cut at approx 5cm and just stuck to the back of a scalloped circle which I cut on my cricut.
I used my Robo to cut the '21 today' (as my cricut has broken and is being sent off for repair *sob sob*).

This is a close up of some of my paper roses I made to go with this project, i just love how these look and at how easy they are to make. I have added some glitter but the pic doesnt do it justice.

Ill be back later with a picture of my new 'jars' which I am using to store all my paper roses in as I sat making a load of these friday night when my virgin went off.
Any comments really appreciated

  1. This is amazing Marie!! Your ideas are fab! It'd be even better if it was a LFC one though! ;o)

  2. This is fantastic. I'm a huge footy fan myself so would love to receive a card like this, but with Bristol Rovers on it! lol Love how you've created the rosette. Roses are stunning too. Zo x
