Trading Cards Mini

Got a child that is into sports?  Maybe more than one child, or more than one sport??  One of my sons is an athlete.  He has played football, soccer, football, baseball, football, basketball, and did I mention football?  LOL

Over the years he has gotten his photo taken for each team, season and sport.  The photo packages usually come with those adorable trading card versions.  After you give the extras out to all the relatives and friends, what do you do with the ones you've kept?

I created a mini to store them in and put on display.  I used digital kits, elements to create the design. I then printed them, cut them out and created a wrap to go inside a UniKeep "Mini Wallet Case Binder" (it's the little one in the set at the link).

The digital kits that I used are: "Grid Iron Grit" by Quirky Twerp, "Play the Game" by Chelle's Creations, "Snippettes: Sports Football, and Sports: Football" by Sahlin Studio.

I used my Silhouette Cameo software to design the layout and then print and cut the various elements.

Here's a look at the inside. The trading cards fir in the insert pockets perfectly!

Now I've got all of his trading cards, all the way up to high school, in one place.
