Glamorous Side of Scrapping 2nd Blogaversary Hop

So we are here celebrating the 2nd anniversary of the wonderful Ashley's Glamorous Side of Scrapping's blog!  I'm sure everyone here is super excited to help her celebrate.  If you've come from Jennifer's blog you are headed in the right direction, or start from the beginning at Ashley's blog.  This will be a two day hop to get all the celebrating in!  My project today is a "shaped card".  If you follow The Glamorous Side of Scrapping you know she is famous for her shape cards, so to show my appreciation for learning this from her I tried my hand at making my own shape card.

Because our family is in the throes of football and play - offs I decided to make a foot shape card for each of my grandsons to congratulate them on a fantastic season.

This is the football from the Cricut cartridge Everyday Paperdolls.  Using my Gypsy I  sized the football to just over 5", copied the image, flipped it horizontally so the two shapes would meet up evenly when folded.  I placed the tops of the footballs almost touching and placed a small rectangle between them and welded all three shapes together to get the base.  I then cut a slightly smaller football as the main shape.  I embossed the football with "tiny bubbles" to get the leather look - this was the closest embossing folder I had.  The stickers are from Paper studio.

I hope you like my shape card today and make sure you come back tomorrow for round 2!. Next on the hop list is Sandra but before you go, to show my appreciation for being a follower I have some blog candy for you.  Just leave a comment both days with a way to contact you.
A box of 56 Christmas chipboard shapes and matching red ribbon!


Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'!
