Can you believe it’s September? I have a lot of birthdays to celebrate this month so I need to get started. I made this card for my youngest nephew who’s turning 8 mid-month. He’s the youngest of three kids but also the most athletic. He’s good at every sport he tries so Sport-Balls Trimmings was the obvious choice for his card.
I heat embossed the image and watercoloured it with distress inks. After the panel dried, I die cut it with the coordinating Sport-Balls Trimmings Dies and set it aside. I created a slimline card base and die cut the front panel with Dotted Slimline Set 1.
I masked off the edges of the card base and used the Light Ray Stencil directly on the card base. I also created a mask for the image and continued the rays below the images. Then I curved the sentiment from Birthday Greetings against the oval die and heat embossed it on to the card base. To finish, I adhered the frame and image to the card with fun foam and added some Iridescent Stars.
