Dream Valley 58 Sports

Today at Dream Valley we want to see your creations on the theme of Sports. We are sponsored by Di’s DigiStamps with a $10 voucher for her fabulous store.

As you can see I went down the ‘cute route’ as I don’t really know anyone sporty to send a card to, nor do I have many men in my life who seem to be what most sports themes are aimed at (everyone say ahhhhhhh! lol)

DV 58 Open

The backing papers and image are from the Joanna Sheen House Mouse Triple cdrom, and as fishing is a sport, I picked this image from amongst the dozens of gorgeous images on there. The only small criticism I have is that there were no plain backing papers to put behind the patterned ones and co-ordinate with the edged toppers. So I just put the image into my graphics program and bucket filled in the border colour to create my own backing paper for matting. I then cut the centre out, so as not to waste ink and printed it.

DV 58 Closed

The patterned edge idea I pinched from a show on Create and Craft which they did with their own pre diecut edged cards. I just used my own already bracket edge cards and cut out a flourish close to the edge to form an even more decorative border.

DV Left

You can see the pattern a little better in this one. Best of all, it all folded flat into a standard stamp size for posting! I forgot to take a pic, but the birthday sentiment was put on the back of the card as there is not an inside to this card.
