Good Monday Morning Friends!
I thought I would pop on and share with you a card I made for my son to take to a birthday party this past weekend. It was for one of his baseball teammates. A new friend who shares the same love, so he asked if I would make him a baseball card. What's a Mom to do....make the boy a card! :-)
So you get the pleasure of seeing another baseball card, and I can assure you there will be plenty of assorts in the future on this ol' blog. At least I can say I am stretching my dollar with my sporting supplies! :-)
Ok, on to the card! I used the sketch only over at Fusion. Since their color inspiration in the photo was shiny pink, I didn't think that would fly for this little baller! :-)Kraft background panel. I dusted off an old Stampin' Up! set for the numbers. I used the stamping off technique to give the numbers an older faded look.
I cut a piece of cork into a banner and added to the card front. I die-cut and stamped the bat, glove, and ball all from Buff Ivory Cardstock adding them to the cork banner. I stamped a sentiment also on Buff Ivory Cardstock and cut into a banner placing it in the upper right corner of the card. Lastly, I used a piece of baseball ribbon to create a tab to tuck at the top left corner and further embellishing with a DeNami Design Sapphire Boutique Button laced with a piece of Natural Hemp Cord.
Here is the challenge at Fusion.
I am also sharing at Little Red Wagon - Use Cork, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday.
Thank you for stopping by and have a MARVELOUS Monday!
