Football Card

I first started out by sketching a helmet. It was really simple and all you need is something with a circled edge for the top of the helmet. Sketch with a pencil all of the designs you will put on the helmet-Even though you will be doing these details with other cardstock. I used a beige cardstock for the helmet and then chose black and red to add as details. Take a black marker and colour in the circle on the helmet and also the face guard. Take another coloured cardstock (I used red) and trace the outlines of the helmet where these details will go. From there sketch the same design on the cardstock as you had drawn on the helmet itself. After you do this, paste it down to the helmet. You can add letters (or initials) on the label on the helmet. Take a white gelpen and trace the face guard edges because you will putting black on black and need to seperate these parts.

Take a green cardstock and fold it in half, then half again so you get a square. You can paste the insides together (the sides you dont see from the card) so that it only opens the way you want the card to open, so you cant take the whole card apart. Cut a black strip of paper any size and put it off to the side. Take white cardstock and cut 10 thin strips. Paste them to the green cardstock evenly. Take your white gel pen and starting from 10, label each strip by 10's until you reach 50, then go backwards Again.

Your top numbers will be : 20, 30, 40, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10
Your Bottom Numbers will be: 20, 30, 40, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10

You can put one number on the one side of the line, the other on the other side:
Ex: 1|0 2|0 3|0 Ext..

After you are done that, take the black paper you cut and paste it in the middle of the card. Then take the helmet and paste it on the black paper-anywhere you want.

You can then take and add the title for your card, but mine went into the inside.

And voila! A simple, guy, sports card!
