I decided to post something today that I made in honor of our highschool football team and my husband and coaching staff. My husband coaches the varsity football team and for the second time in high school HISTORY(last year he coached them to the FIRST EVER!) for our school, they are in the playoffs! Another first is that we are HOSTING the first round! I wanted to present this to him tommorrow morning before he heads to school, so he doesn't know about it yet..shh...lol
I started by layering our school colors of Pumpkin Pie onto Basic Black and then a piece of Brights DSP Pattern Pack onto those two layers. I made a rosette from the Nuetrals Pattern Paper Pack of DSP and then punched out a Champagne Glimmer Pennant and layered the Go Team that I stamped in Momento Black ink onto Whisper White and punched it out also with the Pennant Punch and then adhered it to the rosette.
For the football, I used a Circle Framelit, cut out the circle and then stuck it back into the Big Shot with the circle framelit laying over half of the circle to make the "football" shape. I ran this through the Big Shot and Decorative Dots embossing folder. I made the grid on the football all free handed with strips of Whisper White. I added some cute pom poms behind the football. I made them by winding some of the Tangerine Tango and White Two Tone Trim around my fingers about 3 times and then twisting some lightweight wire to the center and then cutting each end of the loops open and then using a comb, fluffed it out. I hope you enjoy the card, and I hope he does too..lol.
Wish us luck to make it ANOTHER first tommorrow night and make it to the SECOND ROUND!
