A commissioned 40th card



I don't normally put this sort of commissioned card on my blog, as they're not totally 'me' (although I'm often asked for cards with photos), but I don't have anything else to show you today as I've only made this.  The request was for a 40th card with a football theme, in Manchester United colours... I had to google for the team strip lol... obviously I knew they played in red, but I'd assumed it was stripes and it's not, it's solid red - glad I checked!  Can you tell I don't 'do' football?!

I used photos supplied by my customer, plain red paper from my stash with black coredinations.  The football paper is from a Papermania pad, and I cut some footballs from the paper to carry on the theme on the inside. Computer generated sentiment on the front, and the one on the inside is from a Popcorn Bear set.




These pics are just to show the design and inside... it's quite simple really - I just made two 5" square cards and then stuck them together, so the middle panel is double layered.  Really easy and a handy one when you need to add lots of pics!

Apologies if I've not managed to visit you in the last couple of days - I've been trying to keep up with you all, but I'm not feeling very well and I'm also really busy... not a good combination!  I did get round some of you earlier, will try and do some more visiting this evening.

As I've used photos, I'm going to enter my card for the 'picture perfect' challenge at Lexi's Creations.

Great male card Lisa. I'm sure Mark will be delighted with it.

Apologies for not being a good blogger recently. I've not been good at visiting. Had my first DT kit for Simply Create, which was very exciting and I'm hoping to get time to post it this week.
