Soccer Ball Slider Birthday Card

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday,

Today is my day to take over the blog.  This is my second card using
Soccer Ball (1440-B) as the focal point of a Birthday card.

Card Recipe:
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb used for all paper except black heavyweight cardstock from my stash used to create silhouette of soccer play that was cut using my Cricut Explore Air. I stamped the soccer ball using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink, fussy cut the soccer ball and applied versamark embossing ink over the whole ball. I applied WOW clear embossing powder and heat set using my heat gun. I repeated this process a couple times so that my ball has a very glossy look to it and to make it even stiffer.  I then went about creating the background. I took the Lawn Fawn grassy border die and die cut a scratch piece of paper to use as my stencil/mask. Using various colors of green distress inks I blended the grass as shown.  For the sky I used various blue distress inks and my blending tool to achieve the look. To create the slider channel I used the My Favorite Things DIE Namics Surf & Turf dies.
