Man of the Match

Here is my entry for this weeks Make My Monday Challenge. I used some Papermania cardstock to make a concertina fold card and some sporting themed stamps which I've had for ages.  I coloured the images using my promarkers
 Then I made little origami sport shirts to match the 3 featured sports, giving them liquid pearl buttons and a waistcoat for the snooker player and finished off  with the sentiment mounted on some more card
 Close up detail of the shirts - I learned how to make thes from a Japanese student who stayed with us once and I use them quite often, you can make them into pretty blouses with a floral/patterned paper or in club colours if there's a team theme to your card.


  1. A great card Louise and perfect for our challenge at MMM,I love the folded shirts.
