Shaped Husker Football Card

I wanted to share this card that I created recently.  I saw something similar on Pinterest and decided to create the SVG files myself for this card!
 I embossed the front layer of the card to make it look like a real football.  I love dry embossing because it adds so much extra visual interest to anything you are embossing! I also used brown chalk ink around that layer to add a distressed look to it.  The Husker logo I also created in my SCAL software.  Both the "leather" layer and the logo are popped up with thin foam tape.  I used white satin ribbon to give the appearance of the football laces.
 This is the inside of the card.  It can be used for either a birthday, Father's Day or many other occasions!  Since I live in Nebraska, I am sure many of my family members would be happy to receive this card :)

If you like what I create, I would love for you to "like" my Beth's Beauties Facebook page.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
