Footballer's 10th Birthday

I made this card for my great nephew's 10th birthday and thought the image would be perfect as he's nuts about football!  I'm entering the Lili of the Valley and Allsorts 'Something New' challenges and Die Cut Divas 'Do or Use Something New' challenge (I've used my new Jumbo Fishtail Banners die).  I'm also entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white matt
Image: Lili of the Valley ' Action Time' Art Pad
Dies: My Favourite Things Die-namics 'Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner', Memory Box 'Classic Numbers'
Card: Dark red matt
Paper: Wild Rose Studio ' Man About Town'

I trimmed the football paper, layered it onto dark red card and attached it to the centre of the card front.  I die cut the pre-coloured Art Pad image ensuring there was an equal amount of white space around the footballer.  As I had used the largest die for the image and I wanted a red matt layer I drew around the edge of the die before trimming it it to shape.  I attached the footballer and trimmed the top of the matt layer so it would fit against the top of the paper.  This was then attached to the card.  I die cut the numbers and attached them with Collall glue so I had some 'wriggle time' to get them in the right place on the football.
