It's football season and I thought this card, tag and bag set from the new Cricut Wrap It Up! cartridge would be just perfect for that football fan in your house. My husband is a huge Notre Dame fan and so every Saturday he devotedly watches the game with the Notre Dame club while I am silently praying they will win so the weekend isn't ruined. Needless to say, if you know anything about college football, you know the last few years at our house have been difficult...
Moving on to the project - this card was cut at 4". I cut the card twice and then cut off the front layer so I could run it through the Cuttlebug using the Tiny Bubbles folder. I had to run it through twice. This folder is so convenient for adding texture to images like whales, various animals and now this football. I love the pebbly surface! The white edges were so stark that I ran them through the Cuttlebug also using the Distressed Stripes folder (another winner) and then I used some chalk ink to rough it up a little. The football was looking too stark...
This football box was a snap to put together! I cut it at fit to page using a 12x12 sheet of Core'dinations cardstock. Check out the photos below:
You could put a little bag of nuts inside this box as a quick snack - or maybe M & Ms.... yummo!
Finally, the tag is just two layers. Since I wanted the football to have white stripes, I backed just that section with a scrap of white paper and then used my scissors to trim around the football before I added the yellow layer. A bit of Stampin Up! ribbon in brown and cream seemed to be the perfect match!
This Cricut Wrap It Up Cartridge is my favorite of the release! Check out the quick preview shot of the back of the cartridge:
