BBTB2 - One For The Boys (Football/Sports)

Cricut, Life's A Party, Swiss Dots, Football Card

Alright, so this week's challenge maybe "One For The Boys" where we need to create a masculine "sporty" card, but, bag that!  I'm a HUGE Football fan and we host the SuperBowl every year at our house, so this one's not just for the boys, but for me too!  Just kidding, but seriously, I decided to use this opportunity to create the invitation for the SuperBowl in February.  And, I am banking (or just REALLY hoping) on the Bronco's (my favorite team) going to the SuperBowl and decided to use their colors for the inside of my invite.  I used Life's A Party for the shape card, the "Game Day" phrase, and the "date/time/place" words.  If you haven't checked out this cartridge, it's really awesome, SO MANY options!!!  I decided to emboss the football with Swiss Dots for some added texture and I think it turned out pretty great!  I hope you are able to join us this week over at BBTB2 for our masculine challenge and can't wait to see what you come up with!


  1. Love this! What a great invitation. You made me laugh with your "bag that" comment! I too am a football fan and enjoy the sport along with my guys!! This is truly darling - and I confess, I may "borrow" your inside idea and cuts the words for the inside of my card!!! Oh - love the embossing too!!
