Sunday was my husband’s birthday and I thought it would be fun to make him a football card and gift box. Bill is from Missoula, Montana and is a University of Montana Grizzly fan.
Joy from Everyday Cricut made a similar card and box last year and I finally had an occasion to make them both. Mine is a little different plus I added a sentiment to the front of the card.
This card is cut at four inches and is from the Wrap It Up Cartridge. I cut the card twice, once in black and once in brown. I trimmed the brown piece so it fit the base card and ran it through the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder. I added the layers which were cut out of silver metallic paper. I used the Beyond Birthdays cartridge to cut the sentiment and the shadow at 3 ½ inches. And of course, I used the Grizzly’s team colors!
I printed the Grizzly logo on photographic paper and hand trimmed it.
The gift box is also from the Wrap It Up cartridge and is cut at 11 inches. I cut the layers out of metallic silver paper and cuttlebugged the football. The pennant is clip art.
Have a great day and stay tuned for a unique and practical project video.
