Hi, guys! Today we are celebrating my dad's 72nd birthday! As some of you may remember, he is a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. We kids grew up hearing the names Bradshaw, Swann, Harris and, of course, Mean Joe Greene often. Most of my family roots for them (one brother is a New York Jets fan). For dad's card, I did hardly any stamping (yeah, weird, I know!). I decided to use the Steelers colors for the card, and to make background paper using some of dad's favorite players' names. Thank you to my friend Bert for giving me the list of names to use!
By embossing the football, it gave it some fun texture like that of a football.
Paper: Gina K
Ink: Distress Barn Door & Walnut, Versamark
Stamp: Recollections (Football)
Misc: Clear Embossing Powder
For the sentiment, I decided to write "These men were great" for the outside of the card. For the inside: "But you are the GREATEST!" Added a few of my own personal thoughts, and sent it on its way to dad.
This was a hoot of a card to make. I was glad to see the Steelers win on Sunday! Hoping they make it to the Super Bowl so I can break out my Terrible Towels and cheer for them.
Happy Birthday, Dad! You truly are the GREATEST!
