To create this project I am using a Football Player Laser Cut available in our store. It comes in natural wood, chipboard and cork. I used the wood version and I decided to give it color using ESF Chalk It Up Cherry Jubilee.
I applied the ESF Chalk It Up with a Black Gold by Dynasty paint brush and let it dry for a few minutes.
After this, I cut the base of my card using Real Red card stock. The size of the card is a regular size 5-1/2"x4-1/4". I also cut the second and third layers. The second layer is Night of Navy and the size is 5-3/8"x4-1/8" because I created a distress border over this. The third layer is 5-1/8"x3-7/8". 4. I decided to stamp the sentiment first, using my Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square. This helped me to align all my stamps.
Then, I aligned the three layers and pasted these using snail adhesive and pasted the special details. I embossed a piece of card stock with a Circle Interlock Embossing Folder and pasted this over the white layer. I cut a circle with a framelit and pasted it with snail adhesive too. I finally pasted my principal embellishment: the painted football player.
I always use my Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to align the layers, the embellishments and all the pieces that I use in my creations.
