Nephews Birthday Card.

Heres the card ive made for my Nephew who is football mad.

Ive used the New dies from spellbinders just to give you a sneak at what you can do with themFirst i used the Grand Heirloom Scroll Border for the sides using Black Magic Color Core Cardstock and went over the embossed areas lightly to distress it. I then used the Large Octogons Nestabilities to make a three dimentional frame and used distress inks to give it a weathered look. Decoupaged one of the magnolia lad stamps and coloured with the new pearlescent mica paints and dont they look good.Finished off by using a couple of football theme card toppers and some peel offs. The background paper is from the Basic Grey Boxer 6x6 book.
Everything i have used can be purchased from our shop.
I hope he likes it.


  1. Great scroll. Hope you might be bringing it to the shows so we can see it in action.

  2. Yes Gordon has taken some up to the Glasgow show with him and i have some here at the shop.
    I think everyone will love them.

  3. Its a lovely card, he will love it!

  4. Its loveley i am sure he will love it, i love the little pitch, hugs Pops x x x

  5. Ahhhhhh Thanks for your comments.
    He did love it.
    I had a little belated birthday party for him on Saturday as his dad and mum to be were up this way and he loved it that much i had to show him how to decoupage and rubber stamp.
    We had to go to the shop and get him the stamp i used and the card toppers before we had the birthday cake.
    Thanks To Tim and Clare who kept the other children occupied with games till we got back.
    We really did have a great time.
