Greeting Cards: Heroes and Football

Happy Tuesday evening. This will be a quick post.

I previously mentioned that I was going to wind up my card-making for a while, other than a few I would make to use the materials that I already had pulled out.

Here are a couple that I finished yesterday.

This is a one that I made for a young family member,
but I will not be able to give it to him for a while.
I got to use some of those glittered stars that I showed you
a few posts ago...

The digital scrapbook paper was from Picky Chicken
on Etsy...

...and the rubber stamp that I used was from
Stampers Anonymous, I think
(the lettering was worn off on the side of the stamp)...

And this one is for my grandson's birthday which is
coming up shortly.
He will be 10 and has been playing football for a couple  
of years now...

I really don't have a lot of  "boy" stuff,
so purchased this old photo on either Etsy or eBay
(I don't remember which).
The papers were digital scrapbook papers from
Studio 9 Illustrations on Etsy...

You may not tell from the photo,
but I cut out the footballs on the left,
and attached them with glue dots for some dimension...

As you can see by the little kids in front,
this photo was taken in 1939...

On the top panel of the inside,
I glued this line drawing,
and it was from Vintage Retro Antique, also on Etsy...

The sentiment I found during a Google search for
football quotes,
and I printed it out from Word...

I guess they came out OK,
considering I didn't even use any lace on them!!

Thanks for coming by!


  1. Lol Sue, cards without lace, not for the two of us ,lol-but they really are wonderful boy cards, both, and the ephemera used looks so beautiful. They will be loved, by the receivers. Have a lovely weekend, dear. Hugs, Dorthe
