Back to school means high school football time. I made this card for a young relative who is on the football team. I modeled the jersey after a picture of him in his football jersey. I used Everyday Paper Dolls for the jersey, but I didn't use the football jersey. I used the scientist's shirt from page 64 in the manual. I used the hide contour feature on the gypsy to hide all of the interior cut lines. I welded 2 of the shirts together to make a shape card. I welded a square at the top of the back side of the jersey so it would only have a v-neck on the front. The font for the numbers and the name on the back of the jersey is Plantin Schoolbook. It's not a super match to the font on the real jersey, but it was the closest match I had. The school name on the front was cut with Cursive 101.
Since the card was a darker color, I put this white rectangle inside the card to write the message.
The young man who received this card really seemed to appreciate it and was amazed how it looked just like his jersey.
