Manly Sports at Dude Time Doodles

Happy Wednesday! This week's challenge theme at Dude Time Doodles is Sports. Wait till you see the gorgeous projects my DT teamies have come up with for this one!

I've noticed lots of "for a Man/Boy" challenges going on right now, so this is a great time to make some of those tricky male cards. So grab one of the great sports-themed images from Dude Time Doodles/Bonibleaux Designs, check out the current challenges on Feline Playful, and join us this week at DTD!

I used Youth Football, Football and Pennant by DTD/BDD to create this bright Boy card. I colored the digis with Copics; What can I say, the Green Bay Packers has one of my favorite color schemes, so my football cards always have a lot of Packer pride (much to the joy of my family in Wisconsin)! I used the Chalkduster typeface to make the sentiment. I curled up the pennant after coloring it, and sprayed it with a matte coating to keep its shape.

The background is cut/embossed with a Spellbinders die in my BigShot, and I added all the stitching with a black Copic microliner. The clouds are from the Lucky Day stamp set by SP & Company. I still don't have a good greenery stamp, so I cut the shapes from scrap rubber and stamped them in green. I added some dimension with my microliner.

The yellow background paper is Bazzill Prismatics Cardstock that I bought online from Artist Supply Source. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, and the baker's twine is from the Twinery, via CYDI. I had so much fun making this, as I'm sure you can tell! Looking forward to seeing your sports-themed projects for men!

Update: Two years after I made this card, my cousin met a fellow Green Bay Packers fan & they created the sweetest little new fan! I sent them this card to celebrate this special birth.

Thank you for visiting!
