Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

046It’s baseball season so what makes a better masculine card than a baseball?  Yes, I CASEd this card….but it’s so darn cute!  I love how the Chevron Punch makes the stitching on the baseball….very clever.  How do people think up all of these wonderful ideas?

I used a dinner sized paper plate to make the curve up the baseball.  Then it was just a matter of punching enough chevrons with the Chevron Punch to make my stitching.  TSC!  Too Stinkin’ Cute!

The sentiment is from Perfect Pennants in the Occasions Catalog.  For some reason I like to pop up that “a” in another color whenever I use this stamp.  It just seems to add so much to the card.  The star is from Simply Stars.  This is one of the many stamp sets on the retired list that is already sold out. 🙁  Don’t fret if you like stars though….you may see some in the new catalog….just sayin’!  🙂

My mom is a huge baseball fan so I altered this card a bit into a Mother’s Day card for her.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it before I packaged up her gift.  Maybe I’ll have her take a picture of it when she gets it so I can share.  I need to get the gift in the mail today so it gets to the Minnesota Homeland before Mother’s Day!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
