Kop a load of this! …

My brother-in-law is a HUGE Liverpool Football Club fan.  So for his birthday present, we arranged for him and his two sons to have a tour of the ground. 

They got to visit the players’ changing rooms, walk through the tunnel – touching the famous “this is Anfield” sign on the way – go in the dug out and the Kop stand, and also visit the fantastic trophy room.  I don’t know who enjoyed his birthday present more – him or the kids! 

So of course I had to use real red cardstock for his birthday card.  A piece of real red satin ribbon was added for the tails of the football rosette…

 

 

Real red satin ribbon was perfect for decorating the birthday cake I made him too…

 

 

I attend a local college once a week to learn cake decorating, and I am loving it!  

 

 

We’ve been learning and practising more techniques in cake class this term.  A lot of the skills used in card making are also used in cake decorating – which is good news for me! 

 

All papercraft supplies from Stampin’ Up!

Card recipe: stamps: happiest birthday wishes (hostess set), just soccer (retired); cardstock: whisper white, real red; inks: real red, basic grey; accessories: real red satin ribbon, scallop circle punch, 1 3/8” circle punch, stampin’ dimensionals.

Thanks for dropping by today
