Touchdown!


My youngest grandson is playing football for the first time this year.  He is doing great (he got 3 touchdowns so far).  I made this card to show him how proud I am on how well he is doing.

(Front)


(Inside)


All images are digital.  Football player was colored using Chameleon Colored Pencils and cut out using my Brother Scan ‘N Cut.  Name and Number on football image shirt was created in Paint Shop Pro. The goal post and flag pole was colored using Paint Shop Pro and cut out using my Scan ‘N Cut.  The team name ‘Avengers’ was created using two alphabet punches by Martha Stewart. 

Two stamps were used for the front and inside sentiments: You Make Me Proud (Technique Junkies) and Congrats-Way To Go using an older stamp which isn’t marked who made it.  Sky created using a stencil.  Grass area was created using Distress Oxide Inks.  Striped papers are digital.  And everything else is from my stash.
