Soccer card

 A bit of a free day today being a Sunday.  I had a request to make a card for a friend's son again this year, it seems he has kept the last few years cards as he thinks their great! So of course I HAD to make him one this year.  All his cards are Chelsea football club theme as he is an avid supporter, the rest of his siblings and parents are Man Untd supporters, so he is the only one out of 7.  As he is getting older it's getting  a bit more difficult, from the child into the man.  I had a look on the web for some ideas and saw a card HERE which sent me to HERE for the SVG file, she has some amazing SVG's as freebies.  I had already started making the inside with football paper I made, by copying a football and making a pattern fill in PS. I then made 2 circles out of the football page and merged them to make one shape a top and bottom, added a white circle to the bottom half and added a verse. then printed it out. As the size was A4, it was then easy to make a shape the same size in Fairycuts, which I cut out of white card and pasted the printed inside to it.  I folded the top in half to make an easel card.  It was then on to the football, I cut a circle from the SVG onto white card and the shaped out of black card, I was thrilled with the result, it looks so good. Thank you Beth for the file.  I then added it to the folded part of the card, then added the 15 and his name made in Fairycuts again, to the front of the card, I stickled it (of course) then I added the digi stamp by Kenny Keirnen HERE coloured in Chelsea's colours in PS, printed and cut out  and added to the card raised on 3d stickers.  I printed and raised a T shirt copied from the web, as a stop on the card then cut and added a small football as well.
