Wish Big - Toronto Maple Leafs


Here is the birthday card I made for my brother-in-law, Adam. He is a big hockey fan and the Dad of my precious nephew who is, wait for it...also a big hockey fan. He is two and is already skating!

Here is a little peek at the inside.


For this card, I used my NHL Logo set from gel*a*tins that I have had for many, many moons. Do you remember them? They come in an awesomely cool tin for storage.

When I showed this to my youngest son, I asked him: "Look what I made for Uncle Adam, what do you think?" I must admit I was rather please with his response of: "He will LOVE that!" Presumably because he knows how big a hockey fan his Uncle is!

I do love playing with my SU envelope punch board and this project was no exception. Imagine my delight when I realized that I actually had hockey stamps to match - the right team and everything!!! Since the cost of postage went up at the beginning of the year, I did have to add a butterfly stamp to ruin my theme, but alas, there was no reason to ruin a good photo shoot! lol


I would like to share my project at Shopping Our Stash where the theme is "leaves". I definitely dug into the OLD stash for this stuff. I have had the Toronto Maple Leafs paper and that NHL logo stamp set for what seems like forever! 

Thanks much for visiting!

What I used:
stamps: NHL Logo set from Gel*a*tins, tickets from SU "That's the ticket"
wish big sentiment from SU "Pennant Parade"
SU ticket punch
Bella Bling
black and outdoor denim CS from CTMH
