Sports Frame

Good morning all!  You can tell I have put a bit of thought into making men's cards this release!  Next up is the Sports Frame.  I designed this one to include multiple sports so it would appeal to all kinds of sport lovers.  It will make a great male orientated card done in the colours of their favourite team (and please don't hold it against me that I chose red and white for this one, I haven't a clue what team it is from! LOL).  The die has been designed with a frame, an outer die that mirrors the shape of the frame so it can easily be backed with card and mounted upwards and a sentiment die that can be used with or without the frame.  The die has been done in a sort of silhouette style but you can easily cut it in white and ink it for a different look too.  If this one floats your boat, then just leave a comment on this post.  The next die will be here at 12 noon for your viewing pleasure.  I would love to see you back here then.  All for now, Sue x

A great set for all sporty people out there male or female,and covering so many sports in one frame gives it an even wider appeal.

Jan Jay said...

Hi sue, this die is really different, great for men the card really stands out x

BridgetCG said...

Morning Sue, this die set definitely floats my boat, as I have grandsons that love and do a variety of sports, so this would be perfect for cards for them, and some of the other males in the family. Very versatile with the outer cutting edge too, and your card looks fabulous with the black against the striped background. Have a great day everyone, enjoy the other blog posts with the new dies.

Hello Sue
looking forward to day two and maybe an extra idea could be a couple of smaller figures also to represent sports mad children or younger teens maybe to give a family involvement.
Or extra sports equipment if it is popular to build up the set.

Jan.moogie said...

Wow Sue this is truly awesome love it, hugs xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Princess Pixie! said...

Morning Sue
For arguments sake I am going to presume that I have not been able to sleep due to the excitement of day 2 of this launch!
And I am not disappointed x
Ingenious - covers all sorts. I can see this die being a real go to. Presuming that it can be snipped into so can obviously be used to make specific cards if the need arises.
If you are the reason for my current insomnia Sue then I forgive you. Lol. Totally worth it! Going to attempt to get a few hours before the next post if the excitement will allow x

Good Morning Sue. Great idea Sue one for all spots and covers most of th he popular ones too. Not just for the men either.... I have done quite a few sports for the ladies in the last couple of months. Being from Leeds our colour would have to to be blue & white. Someone is going to be very lucky
Has anyone heard from Stephannie Cotterell. Not like her to miss commenting. If you are reading Stephanie .... I hope you are ok. Sending best wishes to everyone. Not mentioning the weather today..... just not worth it. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Day Two kicks off to a great start with this die - you must have spent ages designing it!...and just like the frame dies from the January release it can be cut apart as well as used in it's entirety...how clever!

Elizabeth Louise - you asked yesterday what micro beads are made from - I'm pretty sure that Sue said they're glass not plastic...hth
