Just a fun card today. I have two sons that are soccer players and they have volunteer coaches that do so much! My oldest son has been with his coach for 3 seasons and she is such a fantastic person! He will be aging up next year and just made a travel team in our area. We are very excited for him and much of the credit goes to his solid training. The team’s end of season party was yesterday so I made this card for all the kids to sign. Fun, isn’t it?! I saw the idea of using the Hexagon Embossing Folder for a soccer ball somewhere but can’t find it now. In any case, I embossed a piece of Whisper White and a piece of Basic Black with the folder. Following the lines, I cut the black hexagons out and attached them to the white in what looked like a soccer ball pattern. Then I punched out the ball with a 2-1/2″” Circle Punch. I used the Polka Dot Parade DSP to create the background. First I used the Old Olive print and cut a fringe to create grass. I attached it to a Marina Mist print to finish. A little piece of 1/8″ White Taffeta Ribbon tied to a Neutrals Button (style retired) along with the sentiment on the little Jewelry Punch Tags (punch retired). Now you know what to make for those soccer coaches!!
I’m sitting at the airport as I type this so I’m pretty sure no stamping will happen over the next couple of days. Maybe, maybe the schedulers will be kind and I can get a little in at the beginning of the week. Until then, I hope that your weekend is great! Thanks for stopping in! See you soon!
