Foot (Soccer) Father's Day card 'Allez les Bleus' with free foot (soccer) digital paper

Allez Les Bleus foot (soccer) Father's Day card featuring Di's Digi Stamps Kick Off Ted stamp, by Paperesse.

Most Americans probably aren't aware of this, but the Euro Cup 2016 starts in France on the 10th of June. For European foot fans – or soccer if you're in the States – this is a BIG deal, as foot is without a doubt the most popular sport in Europe.

My father in-law loves foot, so in honor of Euro Cup and his lifelong passion for the game, I've created this Father's Day card with a foot theme, using Di's Digi Stamps Kick Off Ted as the focal image. Di's has some very cute (without being 'cutsey') imagery for male cards, like these masculine birthday cards featuring Gibson Bear and Gentleman Ted.

I found the free digital France Soccer paper created for the last World Cup from Just Peachy. Several countries are represented with free digital paper packs; here are links for England and the USA. I also saw Spain, Germany, Mexico, and Brazil, among others. If you're looking for some brightly colored free digital paper packs they're worth checking out (and the USA one would work perfectly for the 4th of July!). Allez les Bleus is our chant to encourage our French Team and was included with the paper pack. The #1 Papa sentiment was created using Bruce Old Style BT font with a free circular frame from Pixel Scrapper (an excellent source for free imagery, by the way).

My inside sentiment says, 'We'll see how the Bleus do, but for you there's no doubt, the best papa is you!' (howbeit in French, mais oui).
