Mini Paper Pads - Sports Fan Card By Ian Rump-Smith

Mini Pads - Sports Fan Card by Ian Rump-Smith | Craftmania Blog

Hey Crafters!

Have you come across the Mini Paper Pads that are on special offer?

Well I had to have a play... and the 10x10xm sheets might be small but they are so much fun!!

Step 1

▪️I started with an 8x8" card base - it can't be any smaller, as you will see as we go along....

The Pad I used for this card was Game On.

▪️I picked out 4 different sheets and then used my Creative Expressions Noble Round Corner Square Dies to cut them out.

I also cut out 4 more squares the same size in black card.

NOTE - I used the square that just fit on the paper.

Glue the papers onto the black bases so they look like coasters.

Step 2

▪️I added the panels to my card base and judged the position to put them in by eye (I'm not one for all this measuring lol).

▪️I used foam tape to add a little dimension on the card.

Step 3

Making my sentiments

I've used 3 die sets here...

▪️I cut the labels from the new Creative Expressions Fairy Wishes Collection by Jamie Rodgers - "Thinking Of You" and "With Love."

The labels are perfect for all your sentiments in this range :-)

▪️I then used Jamie Rodgers Sentiment Collection - Alphabet and Numbers die set.

▪️Using black card I cut out the letters for 'Dad' and 'Sports Fan'.

Of course you can change these for any occasion or according to your preference.

▪️Using Woodware's Ultra Fine Glue Applicator, I added my letters to the labels.

I used foam pads to add to the card.

Step 4

To complete my card, I used Sweet Dixie's Die Set Ten Pin Bowling.

▪️I cut my pieces in white card and then added colour with my alcohol marker.

I added coloured card behind any holes from pieces coming out of the die cuts.

I adhered these to the centre of my card with glue and also foam pads.

And that is it.... a really nice quick card - perfect for male themed cards or scrapbook pages etc.

Hope you have enjoyed my blog and I will be back again next Wednesday with another blog, and in the week on our Facebook Group.

Take Care
