Soccer Boy Birthday Card by Crafter's Companion


This adorable little soccer boy is from Crafter's Companion. He has since retired but there are many other wonderful images still available. I colored him with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers also from Crafter's Companion. The card base itself is a kinetic card called Circle Center from the Create-A-Card series from Die'sire. These are also from Crafter's Companion.

With this Circle Center card set, you cut out the navy card with the base swing circle. (Follow instructions on package) Next, stamp your image on appropriate paper  and color it with your desired medium. Using a circle die, cut the image out to fit the center circle. Attach image with adhesive to the circle on your navy card stock base.

With the second set of dies, included in the Create-A-Card kit, cut out the green card stock. Using a bone folder and either your paper trimmer or scoring pad, score the paper every 1/4 inch creating a little bit of dimension. (You may also use an embossing folder of your choice.) If you have any ribbon you would like to add, attach to the right panel of the green card stock before you apply to the navy card base. This way you can attach the ribbon to the back of the green card so it won't show when the card is flipped over. Next, attach the green card stock panels to the navy blue base with adhesive.

Stamp a sentiment on card stock and cut with either hand punches, oval dies or hand cut around the wording. Add a navy mat around the stamped shape. I used a stitched oval die and my Gemini to cut mine out. Attach with adhesive and the card is complete!! (I added a few faux enamel dots to the center to pull al the colors together and also balance out the left side with the right side.)

This Create-A-Card die is perfect for making quick and easy cards that have a lot of WOW power!

Happy Crafting!!
