21st Birthday boxing glove card
This is a boxing glove shaped card I made for my son's 21st birthday last month! He enjoys watching boxing, wrestling and UFC. I don't mind the wrestling but the boxing, ugh! But since 21 is a special milestone, his father and I got him tickets to a UFC event which will be in town this weekend! We learned of the show about a month before his birthday (perfect timing!) and I was so happy because I knew he had to receive a special gift to celebrate this milestone! Oh the smile he had on his face when he opened his card!!!!! Oh yeah, the card, lol! I drew out a glove shape on scrap paper and used it as a template to cut it from card stock. I found the boxing picture online and traced it onto tracing paper then onto card stock; this was the perfect embellishment for the card front! I stamped Birthday on a strip of white card stock adhered to the bottom and edged it with two black strips of card stock. For the interior, I stamped the sentiment on a white piece of card stock and attached it to create a pocket to hold the tickets. Both sentiments are from the Fiskars stamp set called Birthday Cheer.
