Pure Innocence Cheerleader & Football Player

Hi everyone and welcome to day 3 of MFT Teasers.  Today I am showing you 2 (of the 4) Pure Innocence sets that will be released on July 7th at 10 PM EST.  I decided to make a card duo that matches.  One is using Pure Innocence Cheerleader and the other is Boy & His Dog Football Player.  A good match, huh?  :)

I have to admit the Cheerleader set inspired me.  I cheered all through high school and one year of middle school.   

If you plan on buying one of these, buy BOTH.  The sentiments are  VERY interchangeable, and I found that I NEEDED to mix them up to say what I wanted.  It is fun to have more sentiment options. 

Here is my cheerleader:

I colored and cut out her pom poms and then covered them in Diamond Stickles.  A girl needs sparkly pom poms.  ;)  I adhered them with red line dimensionals

I used a sketch by Jen del Muro.

Here is a peek inside.  I used the Jumbo Ric Rac die.  Notice anything different?  It's not as jumbo!  I learned a trick from Erin, that you can cut your Jumbo Ric Rac, then move over the die-cut piece and cut again.  You can make it half the size!  How cool, huh?  It makes the die more versatile. :)

My cheerleader is cheering for a football player from the same patterned paper team.  It's the My Mind's Eye Dreamy 2 collection team.  LOL 

My girls REALLY liked this card.  They gave me the cute little cooing noises that I love so much.  Their favorite part?  The GRASS STAINS.  heehee  That is what my high school son looks like after a football game. :)  I embossed the grass that Football Player is standing on with the Grosgrain Texture Board to make it resemble grass. 

The inside was finished off with a sentiment from the set and an accessory image from the set.

See you tomorrow.  I'll have 2 more cards to share!
