Football Bday Have a Ball Card

I use to be a big fan of football when Dan Marino was QB of the Miami Dolphins. Before that Bob Griese was QB of the Miami Dolphins and the team was Super Bowl champs. I watch football sometimes & I watch the Super Bowl.

Made this Birthday Card using Sports Mania Cricut cartridge. Got the idea to use ribbon to lace the football up like a real football looks. Threading the ribbon thru the slots was not easy. Threading the 2nd part of the ribbon was even harder.

Stamped sentiment with 2 different stamps.

Supplies List 

Cricut cartridge: Sports Mania 3" Football Frame
ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
machine: Cricut
paper:  cardstock - brown, tan, white
stamps:  Docerela Creations sentiment 'Happy Birthday',
   K Andrew Designs Splash-tastic Summer sentiment 'Have a Ball'
tool: block for stamping
