49er Birthday Card


One of my third graders who has a birthday this week is a huge 49er fan, so I thought I'd make him a football themed card in the 49er's colors.  I cut some gold paper with one of the rectangle dies from the My Creative Time Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More die set and then ran it through my Vagabond with the Cuttlebug Stripes embossing folder.  I love embossing this DCWV foiled paper - so pretty!

To make my red rectangle I used the MCT Stitched Journal Die, running it through twice, with part of the paper hanging off the die the second time to make it smaller.  I stamped the football player with a stamp from MCT's Touchdown stamp set.  Then a die cut a couple of the MCT  Stitched Decorative Banner Dies and added sentiments from Touchdown and MCT's Wow!  So Many Candles.  I think my little guy will be pleased with his sporty card!
