Football season

Have I mentioned lately how bad I am at boy/man cards? I still have to make them, though! This one is for my nephew who just turned 12. He lives quite a distance away and I don't get to see him much, which makes it hard to keep track of his interests. But I know he likes football, and it's football season, so I figured I was safe with a football card. The color scheme was inspired by the patterned paper from Creative Imaginations, the line is Sports Xtreme. I stamped the football several times without re-inking in an effort to show motion.
I also made a matching box/bag to hold a pair of gift cards (I-tunes and Barnes and Noble, I figure those were safe bets!) I found a tutorial on Cambria's blog. It was fast and easy, but the gift cards only fit if you take them out of their paper folders. Hopefully these will be a hit with the recipient!
Stamps: Good sport (retired SU), All Holidays
Ink: basic brown
Paper: chocolate chip, vanilla, Creative Imaginations pp
Accessories: chestnut brads from American Crafts, round tab punch, clip
