Happy Birthday, All Star!
Hi there! Wow, it HAS been a while since I posted! I have been so busy playing with the Creative Memory Storybook Creator as I try to catch up with scrapbooking my family's pics. But more on that on another post. Today, I am sharing with you all a birthday card I created for my nephew's 10th birthday this Wednesday - and yes, he plays baseball! I am linking this up to a couple of challenges, which are ending soon (better late, than never!) (1) Going Buggy [kid's birthday theme], and (2) The Cuttlebug Spot [easel card]. This is actually my first time making an easel card and it was fun!
This card is roughly 6 x 6. This is the side view of the card.
The mitt and the ball were from the Boys Will Be Boys cart. I started by welding the shadows of the images on my Gypsy to create the card base. Then I cut the welded images in black, and an extra shadow layer for the ball, also in black, as you can see below.
I then folded the the welded circle in, to create the easel effect, as you can see below.
I then assembled the top layers. I embosssed the mitt with the Tiny Bubbles CB folder and did faux stitching around the images with a white Sakura gel pen. The "10" on the baseball and the "All Star" on the inside of the card (as well as their shadow layers) were cut on the Cameo, using the Broadway font. The "10" was embossed with the Swiss Dots CB folder. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment was also cut on the Cameo, using a pre-welded image from the Silhouette Store.
Here's a close-up of the inside of the card.
And here's the card folded up.
Hope you liked my project for today. Thanks for looking!
