it’s a ball

I made some cards for my father-in-law’s birthday this week. One of them was from Buttercup to her Papa. I had just gotten my new set of Stampin’ Up gnome stamps and decided that since Buttercup was a gnome for Halloween, I had to somehow work this into the card. Add my FIL’s love of football, and an idea was born.

First, the inspiration…

Cutest gnome ever

Now the card…

It's a ball

You can’t tell from the photo, but the gnome is flat, and the football pops up on a foam sticker. I love how the football is bigger than the gnome. Just like in real life!

I CASEd this beautiful card for layout.
