Rugby card

 Hello Everyone

My card today was made for our GNephew, a fanatical Rugby player and a certified Referee of our National game. I decided to make a fun Rugby card for him but, had to find inspiration on the web, I was in a definite lack of mojo phase. I blame the rain we were having when I made it!

In Photoshop, I made the simple rugby posts and added the Welsh Rugby ball shape adding a Welsh flag to it and colouring it to look like a rugby ball.  A touch of grass with PS brushes. The sentiment was computer generated with the images.  again it was something I saw on a card on the web, changed slightly. All printed and layered onto red card, I also 3D'd the ball.

Hi Faith Just wanted to say your cards have got better and better. I know it's been a very long while but I got bought a new cutting machine for Christmas and googled to see what I used to make and your blog appeared and I thought I would just drop by and say I love what you are doing. Hopefully, you remember me Leza @ (Krewella Kreations) xxx

Your inspiration search paid off big-time with such a fun card for your grand nephew! I love the Welsh flag image - I used to make those flags when I worked at the flag factory many years ago :)

Hiho, Faith! Hope you are keeping warm! We are trying to, lol. Wowzers, that looks official! LOL I always get rugby and soccer mixed up because only in America we play football with a rugby ball, why lord why lol. At any rate, your computer skills are a source of envy to me, love how you can just set out to replicate something you saw but with your own spin. Have a great weekend! xoxo
