THE DREADED "FOOTIE CARDS" AND ONE FOR A CHRISTENING




How does everyone else feel about having to do cards with the football theme? I can't get inspired by them but, here's my effort on one along with a Christening card; both are commissions.
The images on the footie card have been worked in Photoshop, a PNG is made of the liver bird for the paper ribbon strip down the left hand side...The Sizzix label has been scanned into PS making the smaller red and black layers which are hand cut; all sitting on a Sizzix label (proper) The LFC logo has had Glossy Accents applied in places.
The main green cardstock has been textured with a Sizzix texture plate..................................
On the CHRISTENING CARD, the cross stamp (Papermania) is inked with Brilliance ink pad and the same ink pad is used to colour the 3 x flowers, distressed edges and the bottom layer. That bottom layer also has a gold glitter spray applied (Crafters Companion) - that glitter spray is so useful ;)
DP by K&CO, the swirly elements are cut from another matching K&CO DP
There's the odd flat backed gems and pearls added along with touches of Glossy Accents
Thanks for stopping by X
