First, I apologize for the rather blurry photo. I made this card and love it… I forgot to take a photo of it and I didn’t make a duplicate. So, I had to resort to a cell phone picture.
I made this fun card for my nephew. He LOVES Soccer so I wanted to make him a special birthday card with a Soccer theme. Fun… isn’t it!
The stamp set that I used in on this card is retired; however, Stampin’ Up! has several great sporting stamp sets that would work as an alternative. One being the Soccer Goal Stamp Set on page #89 of the 2011 Idea Book and Catalog.
Besides the super cool soccer ball… Ya know what makes this card so interesting its how I made the checkered background. I used the Perfect Details Texturz Plate and the Stampin’ Up! Big Shot.
What is a Texturz Plate?
Texturz plates create subtle patterns and designs on thin surfaces, giving your project a delicate, embossed background.
I took this Texturz Plate concept to the next level… I used a craft black ink and inked the plastic plate all up. I built my Big Shot Sandwich on the Big Shot and then set my plastic ink plate down, my paper on top etc. Then I ran it through the Big Shot Machine.
You can see I have both Textured and Embossed Card which gives it a bit of a rough look. That’s what I wanted!!!
