Are You Ready for Some Football?

Are you ready for some football? I sure am! The Packer season starts in just a week! It's Crackerbox Palace Friday and I am sharing a special Packer personalized card I made for my husband’s birthday with Crackerbox Palace’s football stamps, including a custom made G on the helmet. You can get the G or a W for Wisconsin, but they are custom made stamps you need to request on a special order from CBP. I created another longer card in a box out of gold paper. Then I stamped the footballs in white and cut out, and the helmet in green ink on gold paper and punched the circles. The football sentiments were stamped in black on green cardstock and attached. I personalized the card with letters die cut with the Parker lower case alphabet from Memory Box. I am going to teach this card in my classes and let them pick out the name of their favorite Packer backer. We all know at least one of those, right?

Here is a couple more pictures of the card from the front and back where you can write a personal message before mailing. 

Don’t forget you can save 15% off your order at Crackerbox with my name (Karen) in the coupon code box. All I ask is that you sign up as a follower here and then go shop for all these great stamps and more. You know you want toJ

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Love to Scrap, Through the Purple Hazeand Simon Says Stamp.

Perfect card for that football fan in our lives! Yes, my guys are ready for some football and are watching a college football game this very minute. Me, eh I can take it or leave it, mostly leave it. lol But since I have all men in my house it is football all the time so I either sit on my laptop or go to my craft room. lol H-day to your hubby. Hugs, Brenda

I love this card for a football fan but in most cases around here it would have to be purple and gold. Ooops! Does that make us rivals too?

Awesome card for a football fan! You really made a fantastic creation and I am sure he will love it! I will say I am a Saints fan being born in New Orleans, but cheer for GB sometimes! LOL.

Thanks for joining Through the Purple Haze Challenge.

A Who Dat Fan,
