Tennis Card

One of this weeks offerings from Free Craft Downloads are some Tennis papers - Very apt as it's "Wimbledon Time " here in the UK

The Backing Papers I used were
Tennis 05
Tennis 013
Tennis 014
Tennis 08
I also used one of the sets of letters
I used 4InchCaps

I also used
A sheet of white A4 card
Gold border peel offs coloured green
A small piece of Green card
A couple of images (Tennis shoes & Rackets)

To make the card

I printed the Tennis 05, Tennis 013, Tennis 014, papers A5 size, and the Tennis 08, A4 size
I folded the piece of white card in half to make an A5 size card,
I then covered the bottom half of the card with the darker paper and the top half of the card with the lighter one
I printed the sheets of the letters I needed to make the word "ENJOY" as "wallet size" prints to make them small enough These were printed on the 08 paper so that they showed up faintly but could see enough to cut around
I cut the letters out, edged them with a green glitter pen then stuck them across the top of the card
I chose the wording "ENJOY" as it could cover quite a few occasions for a Tennis fan

Across the middle I added a strip of the 08 paper, I stuck the tennis images to the piece of green card and added it to the centre of the base card

I have not been able to do much crafting this week due to a hectic time at home
I have managed to do one card, Hopefully another project will follow over the weekend.
