Are You Ready for Some Football?!

Hello and welcome! It’s Gloria with you today, sharing a Football-themed Father’s Day card.

I created a vintage-inspired card, using some vintage football images and Basis Cardstock. This is a layered and “grungy” card, perfect for every football dad!

To create the card, cut Basis Black Cardstock to 11″ x 4 1/4″ and score at 5 1/2″ on the long side to make a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4 top-fold card.

Trim Basis Light Brown Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4 and emboss with the Sizzix Gridlock Embossing Folder (or similar). Rub the raised areas of the embossed cardstock with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Trim the panel to 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ and sponge the edges with ink. Attach the panel to the card front and wrap a length of ruler twill around the top portion of the card.

Using banner die cut templates, cut two banners from Basis Black Cardstock. Cut one banner from decorative paper (Graphic 45 Good Ol’ Sport) and attach it to the top of one of the black banners. Using a decorative star banner die cut template (Papertrey Ink), cut another banner from Basis Blue Cardstock. Attach the star banner to the second black banner.

Attach both banners to the card front as shown. Fussy cut a football player image from decorative paper and use foam adhesive squares to pop it off the bottom right corner of the card front. Tie a length of ruler twill to a decorative chipboard tag and attach the tag to the top left of the card.

Add some stickers and die cut shapes to finish the card.

Cut two pieces of Basis Natural Cardstock to 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ and attach them to the inside panels of the card. Decorate the panels with more football images and stamp a Father’s Day message as shown.

Thanks for looking!
