Yo Me Bro is Gonna be the Big Five O
Well me little Bro is gonna be the big Five-0 this coming weekend and I've been racking my brains what to do for him and in true crafters tradition 'BING' 4am it comes to me! He/well We are all big Chelsea fans here, but as I've made him Chelsea cards for the past 4 years running I thought I'd just make a Blue one this time :-) I used the Quickutz Soccer Ball die and cut out double on the plain circle so I could hide the ribbon between, then I chalked the outer of the circle and used a peel off with a darker shade of chalk to get a sort of watermark of football - not sure if you can see it too clearly. The wording is Quickutz and the alphabet is Quickutz Roxy. I left the bottom circle blank for the sentiment. I made the box (got it right first time SarahK!) and used my large square nesties to cut out the aperture which is filled with an acetate square. I can't remember where I got the football ribbon - if anyone knows can they share please as I'd love some more.
I love all my classes I go on - it's such fun to share and spend time with fellow crafters, but I really do like the buzz I get when I get to design and make something myself. Need to tidy up a bit now...
