Dad's Birthday

My father in law is a sport's fanatic, plays a lots of golf an enjoys watching cricket.

I usually make a golf themed card for his birthday but decided to make a slightly different, but still sport themed card.

Digging through my sport themed stuff I came upon a Dufex decoupage sheet which seemed perfect.

The Dufex embellishment was layered using thin foam squares. I then cut out a mat from silver card using a nestabilities die to mount it on.

I have used the ;latest sketch 517 from Tuesday Morning Sketches for the layout.

All papers used in this card are from my scraps drawers. They have been edged using a silver sticker strip on a roll from Lakeland. Finally the lettering is flock stickers.

This is quite a CAS style card for me which seemed perfect for this male card.

Card Details :-

Card Size - A5
