Coach Thank You Cards

  We are snowed in here again in Central Virginia!  We haven't been out to measure our totals yet but it's still snowing a bit.  We fortified ourselves with some bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches so we are ready for some snow play!

  Before that however, I'm going to share a set of thank you cards that I made for Ryan's soccer coaches.  They organized a team to play Futsal over the winter season.  If you're not familiar with Futsal is a really fun, fast paced indoor version of soccer.  Our boys played well and never gave up even though some of the other teams were far more advanced.  I'm especially proud of Ryan who volunteered to be one of the goalies which is a pretty tough position in Futsal.  It was fun watching him as well as terribly nerve-wracking!

  I used fun bright colors that I was able to mix and match to make 3 "same but different" cards.

  The lower portion of the card fronts are stamped with the circles from Draw the Line set.  I matched the ink color to the card fronts.

 The soccer player was stamped in one of the 3 inks onto Whisper White and I used the Angled Tag Topper punch.

  Next, the soccer ball and the word "thanks" were inked with Versamark and stamped on the various cardstocks and heat embossed with black embossing powder.

  The soccer ball is cut out and popped up with a dimensional on the tag and the narrow "thanks" strip is adhered to the card from right above the stamped background.

  I added a length of 1/8" black taffeta ribbon through the tag and tied it off in a knot.  The whole tag is popped up on the card front with dimensionals.

  The final detail was to add a sprinkling of candy dots to the upper righthand corner to help balance the card.

  I had stamp club earlier this week and need to take photos of the projects to share with you all.  Hopefully, the lighting will be better this afternoon when the snow stops!  We'll see!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
