Today I'm guest designing over at The Male Room. Yay!
The theme is, "Sport/Winter Olympics."
Since I'm a Minnesota girl, I made a couple of Minnesota Viking Football cards. We had a really great season this year, and also hosted the Super Bowl, so much fun!
I started out with some Vikings paper I found at our local craft store, and did some layering. The helmet and letters GO are from Cheery Lynn.
Here's the inside of my card:
The football and heart are also from Cheery Lynn, and the letters SKOL are cut out from Lil Inker stitched letter dies.
SKOL means cheers or good health. Skal was a bowl that was often filled with beer and shared among friends, and it became a way of saying, "Cheers!"
Here's the fight song lyrics:
Skol Vikings, let's win this game,
Actually SKOL is spelled Skal with a circle above the a, or skaal in Norwegian. It just so happens my maiden name is Skaaland, and this is our ancestors village in Norway I hope to visit some day!
My second card is also made with the same papers and dies:
Here's the inside of this card:
I sure had fun making this Viking card set for The Male Room.
I hope you will join us!
