Woodware – Football Boot

Woodware – Football Boot

Father’s Day – that dreaded time of year when we have to make..gulp..mens card!  This little gem was inspired by Loobi Crafts.  I have a few men in my life who really enjoy their football and my FIL is one of those, so I thought the Woodware Football Boot Stamp would be perfect.

Woodware - Football Boot

All the stamping was done using my Versafine black ink pad and my MISTI.  The ‘Father’ sentiment came from a family sentiment pack that came with Creative Stamping.

To create the shape of the card I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle Die to cut out the card shape from a 6in x 6in square card.  I was careful not to cut across the seam of the card so I ended up with a fold, not two circles.

To give a pitch effect I also die cut a circle of green.  I trimmed the top edge off slightly to fit it to the back of the card.

I trimmed down some white card stock to just over the size of the circle nestabilities die I had used.  To give the impression of a football I used a mini die from the X-Cut range in the shape of a hexagon.  I cut out several white and black pieces and positioned them over the card stock before sticking them down.  I positioned the circle die over the background I had made and cut it when I was happy.

Using an embosser I made a fold down the front of the card to create an easel.  Then I affixed the football to the front facing section.

The boot was coloured in using Winsor and Newton ProMarkers.  I backed the sentiments on black card stock and affixed them with 3d foam pads.
