Football Frenzy & Additions - Day 5

Good morning, All, and welcome to Day 5 of the Papertrey Ink April new release countdown! I have two more projects to share with you today featuring Football Frenzy and the coordinating Additions set.

My first card is a Baltimore Ravens birthday card. Someone did in fact mention that his beloved Ravens had been neglected, so I thought I'd throw my papa-in-law a bone with this one.

I began with the jersey. I die cut my shape from white cardstock and stamped the coordinating image in Royal Velvet. I used a fine-tip glue pen to trace along the narrow stripes on the sleeves and then heat embossed them with gold detail powder. The number was added with the Football Frenzy Additions numeral and heat embossed in white. I stamped my sentiment onto a Mat Stack 3 shape using True Black ink and matted it with a Mat Stack 3 Layerz shape that I'd cut from metallic gold cardstock. I added the jersey with foam tape and set that whole piece aside.

Next, I impressed a piece of True Black cardstock with the Center Stage Cover Plate and adhered it to a white card base. I traced along the edge of the cardstock with a gold pen for an extra glitzy touch. Finally, I adhered the Mat Stack panel to the front of the card with foam tape.

My next card is a nod to the home team. Columbus is the heart of Buckeye country. Here it is always football season and if you're not an OSU fan you tend to keep it to yourself. I would be tarred and feathered (by someone...probably family) if I didn't include a Buckeye card somewhere in this countdown.

I began by adhering a piece of Soft Stone polka dot paper to a piece of Soft Stone cardstock. This step is just for stability and isn't totally necessary, but I like to err on the side of caution. From that panel, I die cut a speech bubble using the Sweet Speech Die. I traced the negative onto a card base, and stamped my sentiment in the center of the opening. Then, I adhered clear cardstock to the back of the panel and surrounded the speech bubble hole with foam adhesive to create a shaker "well." I erased my pencil lines and then sprinkled red, white, and silver sequins onto the card front. I adhered the speech bubble panel over top of the little pile of sequins. Next, I die cut the jersey shape and stamped it with Pure Poppy and gray pigment inks. The jersey embellishment was then stamped and heat embossed with white powder. I finished off the card by adhering the jersey into place with foam adhesive.

Well, that's all for me for this countdown. Thank you so much for checking in with me over the past several days! You'll definitely want to check in with NicholeAshleyBetsyDanielleDawnErinHeatherLauraLaurieMaileMelissa, and Lexi for even more inspiration today. I'll see you all again soon. Enjoy the rest of your week!
