One of my clients asked for a baseball themed card. Since I didn't have any baseball stamps in my stash, it was time to get crafty.
I want to warn you, this card is HIGHLY technical and may not be able to be accomplished by the average card maker.
Step one: Use a paper plate and a pen to trace a curved line
Can you hear me giggling now? hehe HIGHLY technical.
Once I had the perfect curvature traced, I cut it out with some scissors.
Next, I used some little sketchy chevron shapes from the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Gruge set to emboss the read threading on my "baseball"
I completed the look with a sentiment from the BOLD SENTIMENTS: Hashtag Authentic set and stamped DAD with the Sketchy Alphabet set.
Taaaadaaaa! I'm quite pleased with it.
This is a good time to tell you that we're midway through the month at the STAMPlorations Theme and Sketch challenge and you should go play. You can use either the sketch, or the theme, OR both! So many options!
I'm also going to play along in some of the other fun challenges going on in the blogosphere including:
CASology - Masculine theme
The Male Room - Father's Day
