Last Minute Gift Certificate

We decided to get our 9yo son a pair of customized soccer shoes for Christmas - he has been wanting them for a long time and spends hours online 'designing' his own shoes.  Not knowing what specs he wants, my hubby suggested to just write him a note in a card.  Well, that seemed to boring to me so I needed something better!  Here is what I came up with: (click to enlarge):

I used my Cricut to cut the frame (from Gypsy Wanderings), and the cleats (from Soccer Solutions cart).  The die cut font is Quickutz Chicken Noodle and I typed the notation on my computer in an athletic font to fit.  His team colors are blue and green, so I used those for the shoes.  My Mom had a great idea to wrap the certificate inside a shoe box so he really feels like he is opening a gift.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and very Merry Christmas!!
