For the base I covered the top half using a fun black and words sheet I found in the 6x6 paper pad by Pebbles - Jen Hadfield called Cottage Living.
For the bottom half I used the black and white triangles from the 6x6 paper pad by Project Life - Becky Higgins - High Five Edition.
I used a lighter orange then the markers so the image would pop, and I cut a piece approximately 2 inches thick for the mat around the image. I added foam to it and adhered the piece to the bottom of the card leaving 1cm of the triangles showing. I then cut the image out by drawing 2 lines across the page omitting the football player and fussy cut the lines up to the football player and then around the payer and back to the opposite end of the line. I adhere the stamped image onto the orange mat approximately 1/4 inch from the top edge.
I finished of the card using XOXO stickers I found in Heidi Swapp's enamel sticker sheet - 312577.
