Football Card

Hello again - yes I know I'm like a double decker bus, don't see me for ages then twice in one day!

Here is a football card I made using the Stampin Up Hexagon Punch:

It was quite difficult to show the dimension of the football.

There are lots of these cards online but I didn't copy anyone specifically as I tried to make mine look as realistic as possible. I used a ball tool around the underneath edges of the hexagons to puff them up and look 3d.

I've seen lots of footballs as my eldest son is football mad - the green house had to go!!

This card gave me a chance to use my new Stampin Up 'Fringe Scissors' which cut the grass perfectly!
I thought about making a winners cup but thought it would be too busy.
Anyway I hope that you like my punched card and thanks for stopping by.
