I have another brand new card to share with you this month for Southern Ridge Trading Company! Of course I tried to keep with my "Christmas in July" theme - but the card ended up being more of a "winter in July" theme - HOCKEY! How much more Canadian can you get than a hockey card? LOL
Let me share how I made it! These are the Southern Ridge products I used on this card:
I started by heat embossing my Hockey Players! I used a dark navy blue for the focal "Hockey" guy, and a nice red for the other! I typically use 2-3 layers of embossing powder on my chipboard pieces. I simply cover each piece with Versamark Ink, then sprinkle on my powder of choice and heat setting! I repeat for each layer until I like the coverage. I used a gold detail powder on my Small Primitive Stars (and one pretty Navy Blue one for contrast!).
I had a few "hockey" themed patterned papers kicking around, so I used them to create my background. I also adhered a small piece of red cardstock to the back of the "Hockey" word to make it stand out.
I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops to accent the edges of the hockey stick and skate blades. It also accented the corners of the card! Here are a few more pictures of my card:
I did pop up the blue hockey player using Foam Squares to give it more of a focal point. SUCH a fun card!!!
I also used the following supplies:
- White Cardstock
- SNS Dimensional Glue
- Hockey Paperpack & Stickers (Echo Park)
- 3D Foam Squares
- Red Cardstock
I hope you had some fun here on the blog today! I really enjoyed making this card - it's always nice to have some "boy" cards on hand!
See you again real soon!!
