Football penny slider card …

My neighbour’s eldest boy turned 10 last week.  He plays for his local football team, so of course the card I made for him had to have a football theme …

Louis birthday penny slider

I added a “goal” with some strips of whisper white cardstock to the penny slider card for the ball to slide into – boys in particular seem to enjoy receiving cards that move. 

The woodgrain background stamp was stamped with lucky limeade ink onto the same colour cardstock, first in one direction and then again in the opposite direction, to give a grass-like texture.  I cut freehand into the top edge of the card with my paper snips for the blades of grass. The balloons were made using the small oval punch and the small heart from the owl builder punch, and then tied to the goal with linen thread.   

The family has a gorgeous chocolate coloured cocker spaniel puppy and as Louis took off one of his football boots, the puppy grabbed it and then ran around the garden while Louis tried in vain to catch her – she was far too fast for him – it was like watching a live comedy!

Here’s what I used to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!:

cardstock: soft sky, real red, lucky limeade (retired), whisper white; stamp sets: memorable moments, woodgrain, pennant parade, just soccer (retired), itty bitty banners, just perfect alphabet (retired), numbers; inks: lucky limeade, basic grey, real red; punches: small oval, owl builder, petite pennant builder, 1/2” circle, 1” circle, 1 3/8” circle, word window; accessories: stampin’ dimensionals, paper snips, linen thread.

Thanks for dropping by today
