Soccer Card



With Ethan's birthday last week and his busy sports schedule i found myself scrambling to create a card at the last minute for his friends birthday party this past weekend!! : )

---what do you think?? should i create a stash of cards so i don't have to stress myself out at the last minute..??!!

The birthday party was on Sunday and with all the prep for Ethan's birthday on the Saturday making a card for his friend totally slipped my mind! So with a busy Sunday, hockey in the morning and baseball in the afternoon i literally had 15 minutes in between to whip up a card. This card came together fairly quickly.

I flipped through the Idea Book and Catalogue for some inspiration and came across a soccer card on page 89 (card below). I bolted over to my scraps and pulled out already cut pieces of card stock and grabbed the stamp sets i needed and started stamping like mad! The card is super plain but I love how the impressions plate gave it a nice finish for a bit of a WOW!



Quick Tip: Spray your card stock with Stampin Mist (My bottle contains half stampin' spray and half water) before you run it through the Big Shot. You'll get a deeper impression on your card stock.

Love it babe! It always kills me that with all the cards that we have in our houses, we never have exactly the one that we need:)

Okay this card is a definate CASE! I am always in need of last minute cards (because why on earth would I be prepared for anything?!)Hmmm maybe I will even make it before the next BDay party and be ahead of the game for once:)
