Raider Football!!!

Hi there and welcome to the My Favorite Things New Product Tour!  Everything you've seen peeked the last seven days is now available for purchase in the MFT Boutique!  But before you rush over to the store to get your goodies, why don't you hop around with the MFT Design Team to gather just a little more inspiration from those sets you've got your eye on!

Head on over to Kim's Blog for a link to each designer!

My card comes with a warning.....if you don't like the Oakland Raiders then this post might not be for you!  LOL!  I am married to a tried and true Oakland Raider fan.  My hubby, Frank, loves the Raiders so much he even has a Raider tattoo on his forearm.....but let's keep that between you and me, K?  When I saw the new All Star Die-namics and Stamp set I knew I HAD to make him a Raider card!  He's going to love it!

I die cut a football, stamping the threads in Fresh Snow ink.   See the little Raider emblem?  I found an image online, shrunk it down, cut it out and put it on the football!  The pedestal the football sits on was cut from black cardstock.    "Game On" was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and is also a little die from the set.  I love that these dies give an impression on the cardstock.  I sewed around the circle one stitch at a time.  Jody does this all the time and even though my thumb was numb and tired from turning the dial on the sewing machine, it was well worth it for the look!  The letters were cut using the new By the Letters Die-namics dies.


Here is the finished inside with another sentiment from the set.  I think this is how my hubby really feels :)



And here's a close up of the football:



And the Die-namics I used:


Well that's all from me!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Jackie,

I bet your husband is in HEAVEN!!! :) What a great card!!!!!! I'm not even a huge raider fan (went to college with Troy Aikman, so kind of like the Cowboys-but I'm more of a basketball fan, but growing up in Cali so many of my friends were Raider fans!), but I love your card! You did a great job!

Thanks for sharing,
