For my Niece

February 28th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Just two months after my arrival in the States, my niece was born in Belgium. It’s hard to believe it’s been 18 years! Lize is a very talented soccer player, and with the helpful suggestion of my DH to use soccer balls to form an eight, I came up with this design for her birthday card. I hope she’ll like it!

The birthday greetings were stamped with VersaMark ink along the left edge of a 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ piece of Basic Black card stock and embossed with white powder. I added a 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″ piece of (retired) Pretty in Pink Prints Designer Series Paper and tied pink taffeta ribbon around the panel.

I stamped the Just Soccer images with black StazOn ink on Shimmery White card stock and cut/punched them out. They were adhered to the patterned paper with dimensionals, as was the black panel to the Shimmery White card.

Thanks for stopping by!
