Paper Smooches Sportsball and Sportsball Icons dies

I used new Sportsball stamp set with Sportsball Icons dies, perfect for any sports fanatics you may know! My husband and I both are huge hockey fans so of course I gravitated immediately toward the hockey stick and puck. (Too bad my beloved Washington Capitals lost in the first round of playoffs. It was heartbreaking.  But…there’s always next year!)

I used the hockey stick die to die-cut two black sticks, flipping one over so I’d have one facing each direction. I added thin strips of red, white and blue to the top and white to the bottom to mimic tape. I’m saving this card for my husband’s birthday. I think he’ll like it.  🙂
