Baseball Handmade Card

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by!  My card today combines a sketch challenge with the Free For All Challenge at SplitCoastStampers.  I really just went with the the baseball theme and followed the sketch exactly.  I am happy with the card, so this taught me that sometimes you just go all-in on a theme and don’t over think it!  This will make a great birthday card for one of those really sporty boys in the family. (I got a couple comments on this so I am adding that I am thinking of specific boys in my family.  The sporty girls in my family aren’t interested in baseball.)


I did just ink up a portion of a Unity Stamp for the sentiment.  That stamp is combined with some basketballs, so I used a black marker to just get the words.  Simple stamping was in order for the other stamps from Prima, then fussy cut them.  

Supplies: Unity Stamps Making the Team, Prima All Star cling stamps, Versafine Black and Crimson Red inkpads, Memento Black marker, Spellbinders Oval dies, MAMBI Champs 8x8 patterned paper pack, other supplies from my stash.

Heidi, you did a great job with the sketch and the SCS Free 4 All challenge. I love the sentiment and the red paper behind the baseballs really make it pop. Thanks, for making a card for the Free 4 All challenge. Have a great weekend.

Wow, I have to say that you've knocked this outta the park in more ways than one Heidi! :) Love the images and how you've arranged it to fit with the sketch! (I still plan on playing in your technique...just need more time with it! LOL!) Wishing you a fun weekend!

You combined both challenges into one fabulous masculine card! Being a huge baseball fan myself, I really like how you placed the images over this great dsp! You won me over with this one :) Thanks for playing along with the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge and we hope you'll come join us next week as well. Stay cool!

A fabulous card for the sports fans. And, this can include the ladies as I know a lot who love to attend and play ball games.
