Football Invitations

In the Early January, in the midst of the beginning of the new year, I got a lovely custom item request. 
Football invitations. I already have football players (which are soo fun btw) as cupcake wrappers.
I had a great time drawing out the football players wrapper. But to make an invite I was forced to draw out a body for the football players, who until now were only a face!
Luckily I had a pretty good idea and I was given complete freedom to draw him however I saw fit.
To take a drawing any turn him into Card stock though is always the fun part. So here I drew out my football players, and then worked on making him look tough with muscles, but to still keep the great facial features.

So I mounted the face with foam (too keep it 3D) and placed the muscles behind.
It was a challenge to make him in such a small size (in order to fit on the front of the invitation).
I placed my tweezers in the photo to help show the actual size of the foot ball player. 

I do actually do MOST of my assembly using tweezers :)
So here is the tough guy. Sneakers, shin pads, football in hand and a helmet. I was really quite pleased with how he came out.
The invitations were a a simple 5x7 flat card with a basic background behind the football player. These looked so great together with my tent cards and cupcake wrappers.

I hope that the event they were used for was just as fantastic!
Here is the invitations and how they turned out in all 3 different color themes.

I cannot WAIT to turn him into a 3D invite and place it online. I think it would be a great idea.
These were sold as a custom order but can certainly be made again. Custom orders can be submitted through email, my website or by contacting me through my Facebook page.
