Baseball Thank You Note
My son needed another baseball themed thank you note, so I created this card.
The baseball print was from an image I found on google and printed with permission (photo courtesy of Tennessee Home & Farm, tnhomeandfarm.com originally see HERE) on white card stock. The brown paper is a digital paper I purchased on Etsy from a store called Happy Place Art and is from a set called Watercolour Series Nautical Set. (You can see the listing HERE.) The THANKS stamp is from the Gina K Designs Vertical Greetings stamp set. (I LOVE their vertical greeting stamps and wish they would make more!) The baseball stamp is from the Hampton Art Warehouse Baseball Rubber Stamp Set (as seen HERE). Both were stamped with Gina K dark chocolate ink. All the edges were sponged with the dark chocolate as well. The stamped panel was adhered with foam tape to raise it up slightly. I finished it off with a bit of thin twine and adhered the whole thing to a Gina K Pure Ivory card base.
The greeting stamp had to be positioned “just right” with the other stamp, and because I stamped brown ink onto a somewhat dark brown card stock, I needed to stamp the images multple times in order to make the images dark enough to see well. I also wanted to make several copies of this card. My MISTI was the perfect tool for the job! (I talk about the MISTI in a previous post which you can see HERE.) It allowed me to precisely place the two stamps exactly where I wanted them, and it allowed me to stamp and re-stamp the images in the exact spot each time. I posted a demonstration of how I used this tool to make this card HERE.
This card is being entered in the “Use Your Stuff” Challenge where we are encouraged to use stuff that we’ve had in our stash but have not used yet, and this week – to “Make it Monochromatic.” It can be a card or a layout, altered art or an ATC – as long as it is monochromatic. I used shades of brown and a baseball stamp that I purchased but hadn’t gotten around to using before now. (http://useyourstuff.blogspot.com/2015/03/176-monochromatic.html)
Thanks for checking out my card project!
