Football card

So here is my origami football card.  I really struggle with man cards don't know why think I like the frill and dainty better that's all.  I just need some practice need to make more of them and i will get better at it but oh well.  I did like making my first easel card here is the link to the  splitcoaststampers tutorials easel card It was really easy will have another go at another one later in the week. The origami shirt was fun to make and easy with the 3D instructions I found.  If you want to have a go here is the origami shirt link  Its good as you can pause and rewind the instructions.
So going to enter this in the here come the boys blog challenge want to support the great blog that is inspiring me to make the man cards.  This week it is sponsored by Bugaboo stamps isn't that exciting, so come along and make a easel card for the men in your life. 
Take Our Badge!
So here is my card......

Have a great day
Sandy :)

  5. I'm late to WOYWW visit, so thought to comment here instead - GREAT job with the card, it's wonderful and oh my, shows off your patience and skills a treat. As for the Kaiser, what a great collection..nothing like a new wedge of paper to get the mojo going!

  6. Clean and simple lines, very effectful

  7. Hi Sandy,

    Fantastic football card and great for the masculine gender! Thank you for stopping to visit me from MIM. Enjoy the upcoming weekend.

  8. Your football card is great and such FUN! Great for any of the men in your life I should think!

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. Yes, the cutting was pretty arduous, but fun at the same time, and great to see the "hoard" gradually accumulating! I had great fun arranging them all, and partially covering them with more "earth" too! Can't wait to give it to my hubby on Saturday.
