A Footy Easel Card

My friend asked me to make a card for her Son's 13th Birthday, she asked for a football themed card in Man City colours, so here's what I made....

I coloured digi stamps using promarkers for the football and 2 trophies, I also covered the trophies in glossy accents so they shine and tied little ribbons around their handles. The sentiment was cut from silver card using the Cuttlebug Typewriter die set.

Although you can't tell from the photo, the image, trophies and verse are all mounted with foam pads to give a bit more dimension. The little shirt was cut by hand and mounted using a little hanger that I made from a paperclip!

This is lovely - I love the the fact you've turned a paper clip into a coat-hanger - I never think of anything like that.
