Superbowl birthdays--Go Pack Go!

My mom invited my husband and I over for lunch on Sunday to celebrate my dad's and my brother-in-law's birthdays.  Sunday evening, the Packers are in the Super Bowl, so I just had to design some Packer birthday cards!

I designed the Packer G on my Gypsy, welding together a G, C, and l from Opposites Attract.  I also designed the laces on the ball with the C and l from Opposites Attract.  The football is from Everyday Paper Dolls.  I used the tip from Fantabulous Cricut for cutting an additional football to go on top of the shape card.  That way, you don't see the flat edge where the fold is.  (I actually had my football card in mind before seeing the one on their blog!)  I used Cursive 101 to cut out the yellow letters.  I wanted to buy the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder for this project, but my local stores didn't have it and it seemed too expensive to order Cuttlebug folders online, so I settled for Swiss Dots.

This card will be entered in challenge #36 at Paper Playtime--anything goes.
