Hi everyone, this St. Kilda Football card was an order I made, I was really happy with the way it turned out. I used the new Cable Knit Dynamic textured embossing folder, it is quite a bit thicker than the regular embossing folder which gives it a lot more texture, when using it you just put your card stock in the folder and put that on your big shot platform (no bottom cutting pad) then place a cutting pad on top and roll through, its best to pre-cut your card size before embossing otherwise it will just tear if you try to use your stampin trimmer.  The finished card size is 6 x 6 inch I wanted a bigger card so I could get that jumper shape and just made an envelope to fit using the envelope punch board.  For the arm and neck binding I used 3 straight pieces of black card stock and made it into a triangle and for the arms I used 2 of the circle framelits, then cut them in half.  I didn't actually measure I just eyeballed it so it looked even and trimmed off what I didn't need.  The alphabet stamp set unfortunately is retired, but that was what I had on hand, for the birthday banner I used a large oval framelit and embossed the Happy Birthday with red embossing powder.  For a bit more texture and pop on the card I used Stampin'Up Dimensionals.  I hope you enjoyed todays card, and of course you can make your own personalised football colours.  Any questions feel free to ask. I will list the products below for what I used to make this card.

*****just a note the new Holiday Catalogue has been out now for a week, it has so many great christmas stamps, dies and so much more,  I will be posting cards that I have made using some of these sets*****  If you click on the catalogue picture up on the right hand side you will be able to view it on line.

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.
