So here is a very simple design that I came up with for her.
I kept to a really simple colour scheme using red, white and black which is always a really striking combination. I had the little football kit in my stash from ages ago, so long ago in fact that it was the old Liverpool colours of red shorts and white top, so I coloured the top red to reflect the current kit.
I used red as my background layer and then added a black layer before adding a white panel that I had embossed using a 'happy birthday' embossing folder. I die cut a label from white and mounted this onto black and red card trimming by hand each time to leave a really narrow border I then stuck the kit down onto this panel and added it to the card.. The football was cut from black using a tattered lace die and then mounted onto white card to give the full effect before sticking it onto the card. I finished off with the sentiment.
The insert is a larger version of the crest on the shirt with the liver bird and the words football club removed and the greeting added in their place.
I am entering the card into the following challenges.
