Good Sport!

I know that I've mentioned this before, but I have such a hard time designing "masculine" cards!  I love flowers, bling, and pretty, and tend to make all of my cards along those lines.  But I frequently get asked for masculine cards, so I always keep my eyes alert for stamp sets that I think would make good masculine cards.  When I saw the Good Sport set in the new catalog, I immediately thought it would fit this bill, but I also think it's a good set for making cards for both genders.  My niece, for example, that plays soccer would like this card too.



And depending on the team colors (of the person you're making the card for), you can change the outline color in the starts and for the greeting stamped inside the banner.  I used Lucky Limeade as an accent color for this card and also added a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the wings.  With the Celebrate greeting, this card could either be given as a birthday card to a soccer player, or as a congratulations for winning a soccer game, or tournament.



I also punched the soccer ball out and popped it up with a Stampin' Dimensional for some depth.  In addition to the soccer ball, the set also has a football, baseball, and and basketball!  Over on my Sisters in Stamping blog this week we're sharing masculine cards.  Head over there to see what my creative stamping sisters designed and for more inspiration! 


As always, thanks so much for stopping by to visit!  I hope you have a great weekend!
