Football Themed Birthday Cards

My Dad really loves football and his birthday was last week, so I thought this would be the perfect theme for his birthday card. I also incorporated the colors of his favorite college team - BYU. It was a hit!

This card is 5.5" x 5.5." I used Emma's 'Wow! So Many Candles' stamp set for the sentiment and embossed it with the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder. I also made a similar card for my great-nephew but his is standard A2 Size of 4.25 x 5.5.

I had made a similar style of a basketball card a while back. HERE is the link if you are interested on seeing it or getting more details on that one.

Items Used:

Sports Mania Cricut cartridge (everything but the Y)
Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge (Y)
My Creative Time stamps - Wow! So Many Candles
Cuttlebug - Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder
