Cheery Lynn Football Helmets for The Paper Players



 Hi everyone!

Today Nance has a fun sketch for us at The Paper Players:




The past few weeks I have been making a few cards to put away for my kids. This one is for my son, who loves to play fantasy football. Of course, growing up in MN, the Vikings are one of his favorite teams.


I found a set of paper at our local craft store I was SO excited about! It's from Scrapbook Customs, and has 12 sheets of double sided Vikings Pride Football paper. The store also carried a MN Twins pack. The paper is such a high quality, and the designs so much fun! I found a link here if you are interested....looks like they make several teams.


For this card I used 3 pieces of the paper. The helmet and footballs are from Cheery Lynn's sport die set. I had to free hand the famous Vikings horn, and adhere it to the helmet.


I think my son will get a kick out of opening this card next fall...and I have a feeling I'll even make it on his frig!!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team here:

I hope you will join us!
