Football Jersey Birthday Card

Time for a new challenge at House of Cards;
SHAPED CARDS ! No rectangles, no squares ;) 
This is going to be so much fun to see what all of you
create and share with us ! 



Yeah, yeah:
mine is basically a rectangle,
but I have created many other really fun
and unique shaped cards in the past.
You can see some of them here.



I've been waiting impatiently to share this project
since making it late last fall for a nephews birthday.
It is a football jersey shaped card!

It is not a  4.25 x 5.5" card like many of us create.
I had to make it larger to look right to me and be able to 
add the details that I did. 
I made it to fit a large envelope I had on hand. 
Unfortunately I did not think to trace it and scan the outline
for a pattern to share here before I gave it away.
It is cut from one piece of card stock
with an additional white piece inside to write on.



Marker, sponging of ink,
card stock scraps cut to fit
and stamped, heat embossed white letters
were all used to give detail to the jersey.
The 13 was cut out using my old Cricut Create machine.

House of Cards Design Team members

Happy (e)Mail Day !

Boy, I sure needed a little pick me up after the past month I've had
and I received that both vial email and the postal service last week :)

Two of my projects were winners late last year and to my surprise, I received prizes from them !

The one in the mail threw me when I saw the Air Mail stamp peeking out from under the stack of bills and junk mail,  wondering from who was it from and what was it.  It was two nice little holiday stamps from Christmas Cards All Year Round where my Triple Challenge Christmas Card was randomly chosen as the November winner (no stamping on the card). Awesome, new holiday stamps for card making next season (or throughout the year to be done with the cards since the holidays always seem to sneak up on me).




The other was a nice bundle of digi images from Dee Dee's Digi's,
that was gifted to me from Scrapbook Blessings Club where my "Dad's Truck" scrapbook page
was the random winner last September (anything goes).


Many thanks to the challenges and their sponsors. I look forward to participating in more this year !
