Graphic 45 papers are double sided pattern papers that provide amazing color and theme combinations. I love using these papers to create cards. Masculine cards can be somewhat difficult to create, but this sports themed paper is perfect for creating masculine cards.
Bazzill cardstock was used as the card base and the plaid side of the Graphic 45 paper was then cut to fit. The opposite side is a collage of sports in a variety of sizes that can easily be cut apart and used individually. I chose to use several of the images as the focal point on these cards. Stamping my sentiment on white cardstock, I die cut it into a tag shape and added it to the card with foam dots for dimension.
My second card uses one of the larger sports images as the focal point. The card base was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder for dimension and then lightly inked. A strip of white cardstock was punched and attached to the card base with staples. The image was matted with cardstock then adhered to the base. The sentiment was stamped, punched and attached to the card with a brad.
