Rugby birthday card

A birthday card I made for my sons to give their Grandpa for his birthday. I chose these dies because he loves rugby and the colour scheme because he supports Wales.

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red and then white card, I have cut red and white circles. I printed a sentiment and die cut it and attached that to the centre of my card. I die cut the figure using my new Tonic dressables dies. I cut the rugby ball, words and boots with Sweet Dixie dies. I cut the ball in white and black. I used the white die cut and paper pieced with the black elements. I paper pieced the boots using the black die cut and adding the elements from the white die cut. I cut the cup using a Marianne die in silver metallic card.
