Super Striker

I made this card for my great nephew's birthday as he loves playing football.  I'm entering The Male Room 'Numbers' and Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenges and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Super Striker' Mini Masterpiece
Die: Memory Box 'Classic Numbers'
Punch: Woodware squared corner
Card: Black matt
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Man About Town'
Other: Wink of Stella

I trimmed the football paper, layered it onto black card and attached it to the card front.  The precoloured image was trimmed slightly and the corners were punched.  This was then layered onto black card before being attached to the centre of the card.  I die cut the number 9 from both black card and a football from another image,  I attached the black number to the lower corner with the football number offset on top.  To finish I highlighted the image with a Wink of Stella.

This LOTV image is really great for a boy of nine Kath and love the accompanying football background paper, and the punched corners just add that extra bit of interest. x
