Cas_ual Fridays #77

Good Afternoon All.
I hope I find you well and keeping warm.To  those of you on the east coast of the USA, my thoughts are with you and I hope things improve for you very soon.

The challenge at Cas_ual Fridays this week is to make a clean and simple masculine project.

This is my take on the challenge,

Hull City, our local football (soccer) team play in Black and Amber kit so the colours are always welcome in the fundraising box. I`ve also wanted to try this technique for a while and was inspired recently by THIS 
card by Rosemary.
I used a Die-namics alphabet die on the strip of card leaving it with the negative, placed it onto another strip of card in the opposing colour with some double sided tape behind the letters. Then cut out the same letters from the opposing colour card ( positive) and placed them inside the negative. Sounds complicated when I say it but it is sooo easy peasy and the effect is amazing.
To finish off the design I stamped a football from The Stampman in Versafine Onyx and embossed in clear EP then cut it out with a nestie circle.

The sentiment is by Anitas, also stamped in versacolor and embossed.
Really enjoyed making these and I`m pleased at how they`ve turned out.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
