Football birthday cards for big boy's.

Hi everyone,

Well, that's two down and two to go. Don't you just love BOY cards. It's either football, golf, motorbikes or cars . Such variety. In this instance it happens to be football, or to be more precise, Manchester Utd. It's my great nephew's 21st birthday, my sister's Grandson, so they were the two cards I had to make. I'm quite happy with the results ( but can't wait to get back to my glitter and glitz)

Here's the card I made for me to send. I decided to use the Manchester United colours for this one. The backing paper is from MCS and I just tiled 'Happy Birthday' all over it. I printed the same backing paper on 220gsm supersmooth card and made the rosette. The centre is a clipart football mounted onto silver mirricard and the numbers were cut out on my cricut, again in mirricard. A bit of black card candy (had to get some in somewhere) some satin ribbon and a sentiment from cardart to finish.

My sister wanted me to use an actual picture in this next one, with Ricky as part of the team. I did this last year for my Grandson and it was quite effective.

I downloaded a picture of  ManU and imported it into Craftartist to work some magic. I was a bit limited with pictures of Ricky, so I settled for this one. He's sticking his tongue out showing off his tongue stud. Him to a tee. There he is, next to Scholes. That's worrying, I know the names?!? I mat and layered onto some holographic card and placed it at a jaunty angle. The background is from the Docraft Woodlands folk and friends. I thought it was quite apt to have grass. Bit of black card candy again, it finishes it off. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Hope he notices himself.

My sis just turned up, she loves it and says Ricky will too. Phew, that's a relief.

Thanks for coming by, see you soon.
