Goooooooo Irish



My husband is a huge Notre Dame University fan. For his birthday I made him this easel card using Varsity Letter and Design Studio. The ND monogram is about 4" tall. The background football field was all cut on the trimmer and then the lines glued down. The uprights are cut from the football cut on the Sports Mania cartridge and the football button is from Making Memories.


The inside was two, 2 1/2" x 6 3/4" sheets mounted. The top one I added a border sticker from a scrapbook ND set and then I printed a sentiment on my computer. On the bottom half, I used more stickers from that same set and then pop dotted so that the card will stand

  22. Hi Angie, I love your card!! My brother-in-law is also a huge fan of Notre Dame, He went to school there, as did his brother, 2 sisters, his father, and his grandfather, and great grandfather. His daughter did not go, but she did go to their sister school across the street, St. Mary's. Is the little Notre Dame guy a sticker, or did you make him? Great card!! Karen<3
