World Cup football fever with Weenicons Sport

With the World Cup rapidly approaching, Angie has been busy creating lots of fab projects using the newly released Sport Weenicons die cut decoupage toppers from the Crafthouse Press.
The pack that Angie used to create these goodies is pictured above - there are two other die cut decoupage designs and a die cut toppers pack to choose from.
Angie made full use of the pack - including making this stunning card from the David Beckham printed on the compliment slip in the pack. Angie decoupaged him and made a rosette with paper strips stuck round the printed football part of the topper. On the base card Angie made a pitch layout with silver peel off border stickers (as she didn't have any white to hand) and added a scarf style greetings banner from a Craft UK die cut topper sheet at the bottom.
For the football through the decades card above, Angie used one of the background papers provided mounted onto red deckle edge card and added the Geoff Hurst, Kevin Keegan, Gary Lineker, Paul Gascoigne and David Beckham toppers.
A close up to show how the England wording has been cleverly 'Blinged' up, by using a Sakura Quickie glue pen to trace over the letters and applying glitter when dry.
The card above has been made by layering one of the David Beckham toppers onto a photo printed goal background (from MS word) with football printed border and green card edging.
A football legends card, Angie has added a printed player biography, printed football border and other border cut from the leftovers of the die cut toppers sheet.

Similar mini England legends cards can be made for each one of the players.
Angie made the pencil / pen pot by covering an empty tin with paper / card, edging with football printed borders then adding toppers, which can be stuck on either with sticky pads or glue.
The toppers would also be brilliant for a World Cup themed party (check out Angie's Animal Party for party favour ideas too).
The fabulous party goodies include cupcake toppers with cocktail sticks, drinking straw toppers and napkin rings.
Angie made the napkin rings from a ring of cardboard covered with black and white ribbons (or any other colour of your choice) to cover, then trimmed with a topper, stuck on with asticky pad.
Thank you, Angie for such a fantastic selection of ideas!
