I was asked to make a birthday card for someone who is a Liverpool FC supporter. I made a card similar to this before and was very pleased with how it turned out so based it on that.
I printed the badge off onto glossy photo paper as I like how much more vibrant it makes the image. This is matted onto red and black card to make the design pop out from the background.
The backing paper is printed onto hammered paper from staples with a 65% transparency setting. The banner is from my stash and the football is a Sizzix diecut.
I have just heard back that Martin's friend loved his card so that is another happy customer :)
