Do you have any football fans in your house? I’m a born & raised Wisconsin girl, so football runs in my DNA. Specifically Green Bay Packers football and today is probably one of the biggest games of the season. Today is the Minnesota Viking/ Green Bay Packers game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Packers/Vikings games are always big, but today is even bigger. Our (Green Bay) “sure to be Hall of Famer” ex-quarterback returns home with one of our biggest rivals. To keep from getting on my soapbox, I will just say that I am a Favre fan, a Packers fan and not a Thompson/McCarthy fan.
In honor of the game today, I inked up my new SUINK First & Goal set (no longer available, sorry). Maybe this can bring some Packers magic today (or Majik for any Packers fans out there).
Handsome Hunter and Summer Sun are the perfect Green Bay colors. I stamped my QB and goal posts on Select White and colored them in with Copics. I then used the largest Labels 1 die to cut and emboss it. Before removing the die, I lightly sponged over the top with Antique Linen Distress Ink — I love the effect from this. Using my Le Pen, I wrote in Packers on the goal post padding.
I embossed my Summer Sun with the Houndstooth Cuttlebug folder. I then cut three strips of Handsome Hunter and stamped Go Pack Go with my Palette Stamp & Stick Gluepad. This was by far the most disappointing part of this card. I did each word separately and immediately poured Martha Stewart yellow barite glitter over the top. The glue did not not hold well at all. I used my Quickie Glue Pen to fill in the empty spots and apply more glitter. I love my Quickie Glue Pen and it won’t be losing its spot to the Palette gluepad any time soon.
I folded the strips around the Summer Sun panel and added a mini brad from Recollections. The last thing I added was some hunter grosgrain and then added the image on dimensionals. The football is cut out and popped up on a dimensional. Inside reads “Are you ready for some football?” I’m planning to send this to my Grandpa – he is a big football fan as well, so I think he’ll get a kick out of it.
