Baseball Birthday Card

    Hi Everyone, I wanted to share a birthday card I made for my hubby.  His birthday is this Sunday and I had to make him a card.  He is a huge Boston Red Socks fan.  I found a cool card on Splitcoaststampers and I had to case it and make it my own.  (Her blog is http://renlymatsworld.blogspot.com/) Since my mojo ran away.  So, I just used what I had on hand. 

    The "B" is from a template and I so wished I had a cricut to cut out this letter than me tracing and cutting it out.  What a pain!  But I did it anyway.  This template I've had for such a long time it's called Spunky Letters.  The letter measures 3 inches then I used a matting disk from SU which is since been retired and no longer for sale.  I use it to mat the letter an eighth of an inch.  I then stamped and colored the baseball player with my copics.  I got that stamp from my Fiskars baseball set.  I had a baseball brad and trine to finish the card.  Oh, I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and Have a great weekend!

Hugs, Friday

Wow! That's really a fabulous card Friday! The embossed background shows up beautifully, and your coloring is really great! I think doing some of these things old school makes them more special, don't you? It takes a bit more time and effort that way! lol Did this project help your mojo at all? Hope you have a fantastic weekend! :o)

The card came out great! I think you did better with the B than a cricut would, hehe. Happy Birthday to your hubby :)
