I Play In The Low 80’s… Jr. Legal Pad Cover

Here is another golf-themed notepad cover design I created.

The sentiment is a quote that I found online by comedian Joe E. Lewis , and I used it to create a custom made stamp from RubberStamps.net.  The image is an Art Impressions stamp called “Goldie Golfer.”  I stamped the sentiment and image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers (hair: E50, E42, E43 and E44; skin: E50, E53, E71 and E04; clothes: BG15, Y21, Y23, and Y11; golf club and glasses: C4) and a Sakura clear glitter pen.  The grass was stamped with Gina K Grass Green ink with a stamp from the “Work of Art” set from Stampin’ Up.

The cover was made with white card stock.  Then I created a decorative panel and adhered it to the front.  The argyle patterned paper is called “Summer Argyle” from the “Golf Collection” line by Adorn It – Carolee’s Creations.  I also used Gina K Sweet Corn and Turquoise Sea card stock.

I paper pieced her shirt.  I needed a smaller print than what was on the patterned paper since the shirt was so small so I scanned the paper and used the Silhouette software to create a “fill pattern” for the cut file I created of the shirt.

I have boxes of ribbon but never seem to have the right color when trying to finish off my projects!  I recently purchased the Alison’s Ribbons die plate (made by Cheery Lynn Designs) from Gina K Designs and was able to create a faux ribbon with the card stock I used.  A perfect match!

  2. These golf themed cards are just too much! The combination of these humorous figures and equally humorous sentiments set in light and wonderfully crafted and detailed settings are sure to delight the recipient of any one of these series of cards! Kudos!
