Cricket card

Today is the birthday of one of my cricket-made nephews, so no prizes for guessing what the theme of his cards usually revolves around! I found this decoupage cricket image in my stash but despite having lots of backing papers, none matched so I made my own.  I sponged Antique Linen & Mowed Lawn Distress Inks through a homemade stencil onto plain white paper. I mounted the image simply onto a Spellbinders oval, and stamped the greeting to finish.

I’m entering this into the challenges at Crazy 4 Challenges where the theme is green, & Kraftin’ Kimmie where anything goes this time round.

Football Birthday Card

One for the boys!  My son’s best friend will be 12 on Thursday.  He’s very sporty so his card had to have a sports theme; I’ve had this Paper Nation decoupage in my stash for a long time.  I saw a 6″ square stepper card online & came up with a template to recreate the same thing in metric (I can’t work in imperial!)  I hope you find it useful.
