Hi, thanks for popping by
I made this card for my youngest brother's birthday.  He loves football, golf and I'm sure many other sports and using the Shadow Box is an ideal way to incorporate some of his likes.
I used a gorgeous pearlised blue A4 card, by Crafter's Companion, and folded it in half for an A5 card.  I die cut the Shadow Box Frame by SW for CE in a lighter blue card from my stash, and added mounting foam to the back of each cubby.  I then embossed a piece of Brilliant White Foundation Card by CE using one of SW's embossing folders, and my apologies as I will get back to you with the name of it! The frame was then adhered to the embossed white card.  I created two boarders using SW's Double Pierced Rectangles, one in the same darker blue card and a wider one in white card.  These were adhered to the main card.  Using the same darker, pearlised blue card I die cut 'You're A Star,' 'Brother,' and 'Happy Birthday, ' '#1,'  3 times for each element, adhered them together to create dimension.  The 'Happy Birthday' was die cut using the lighter blue card.
From my card stash I die cut the tennis racket and ball in white card and coloured them.  I did the same for the golf club and ball then die cut 3 of each footballs (in orange and yellow card) I used Kraft card for the rugby ball then coloured the stitching in a lighter brown using one of my coloured pens. 

Brother was adhered below You're A Star at a jaunty angle.  A verse completed the card.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you get a little inspiration from my designs, your comments are always welcome
