Soccer birthday card

My step son will be 10 on his birthday. He loves playing soccer. So I knew exactly what cart I needed to make his birthday card. I say this cart was my steal cart because I won it off of ebay for $11 and I think that is a "steal". I wish I could win LAB or LL for that. lol....
I am absolutely falling in love with vellum. I think the inside is my favorite part of the card because of the vellum. I love how you can see the soccer shoe behind of the wording.
OK, here are the directions:
Soccer cart- goal net cut at 2 1/2 " regular and shadow, the player is cut at 3 1/4"- reg and shadow. One the inside of the card, the shoe is cut out at 1 1/2" reg and shadow. the whistle is cut at 3/4" and the trophy at 1 1/2". I also took my sharpi and wrote Nick on the trophy.
Base Camp for the font cut at 1" on both reg cut and blackout cut
Jasmine for the corners on the inside of the card cut at 4" and 5".
Thank you so much for looking and thank you so much for leaving a comment. They really do mean so much!
