"Just For Him" Blog Hop - Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons

Happy Saturday and welcome to the "Just For Him" blog hop with the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' design team.  Today the PPPR design team is sharing projects geared for men - dads, granddads, sons, brothers, etc.  For my project, I used the PPPR "Football Cutting Files" and made a football shaped card.  I created a shadow using my sihouette software and welded 2 shadow together to make the base of the card. I also inserted a small rectangle into the welded shape to give the fold of the card a bit more stability.  I used the Oregon Duck colors green and yellow for my card since our household "bleeds green" and 2 of us are alumnae and a 3rd will be going to the U of O next year.  This card will probably be for my husband for father's day.  I had some U of O paper and used my circle punch to cut out an "O" and adhered it to an epoxy sticker.  I used the tiny bubbles cuttlebug folder to emboss a section of the football to make it more realistic looking.  My sentiment is from Cardz TV stamps and my twine is from the twinery.
