Super Bowl LI is almost here, although for those of us living in Houston, Texas it IS here! Time to celebrate with a card for Super Bowl 2017 Card With Punch Art Football Helmets. I wanted something to commemorate this big event for our city, so here is a card celebrating the best in football here in Houston! The greeting from the Watercolor Words Photopolymer Stamp Set expresses it perfectly!
The city has been spruced up for the Super Bowl, and the George R. Brown Convention downtown and Discovery Green, a park outside the convention center, have been transformed for many events held pre-Super Bowl this week. There are games, parties, celebrity sightings, concerts, shows and more and that’s all before the championship game even starts!
To make my Super Bowl card, I used a Soft Suede card base with a layer of Emerald Envy on top. Before I adhered the green piece, I scored it with lines about 3/4″ apart with my Simply Scored scoring board to represent the football field with the yardage marks. Then I stamped the greeting with the Watercolor Words stamp set I mentioned.
For the football helmets, made with punches, I punched a circle with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. Then I used a 1 1/4″ Circle Punch to punch the indentation for the front of the helmet and the 1/2″ Circle Punch for the little indentation. To make the face guard I used a retired triangle punch. I also used my retired Crop-A-Dile tool to punch the little black circle on both helmets and a retired small star punch for the stars. Just use whatever you may have! Or you can just snip parts by hand.
It is fun having stamping and papercrafting supplies on hand for commemorating these special events and occasions going on, just for fun. But this card isn’t just for the Super Bowl in Houston, you could make something like this for a man’s birthday. As we have discussed before, it often is difficult to come up with a masculine card…..not that this couldn’t be a card for a woman or a girl.
