SCH21 Vintage Baseball

DSCF5609

Happy Monday!  It’s VBS week so I doubt I’ll have too much time for stamping/blogging this week!   I did have a fun time over the weekend making this vintage card for Sugar Creek Hollow’s challenge 21, which is all about sports.  I rummaged around in my digi image file and found some old baseball card images, I believe from the Graphics Fairy, to make my creation:

I pulled out some Basic Grey scraps, printed off a cool vintage baseball cap image from the net,  and stamped some miscellaneous Americana images, as I really have NO sports stamps:

and I even made a little baseball player chipboard piece, printing him on some DP and mounting him on three pieces of cardboard, coloring the edges with a black marker:

Oh boy, this was fun to make….a bit time-consuming to figure out what to put where, but it’s nice to have a masculine card on hand for a birthday!

Enjoy your day and be sure to come back tomorrow to see the ColourQ challenge!!!

omigosh! So SOOOOOO cool! I love that you printed all these out, too, that would never occur to me! Love that you "built" the little chipboard player, too:) Hope you are having a good week so far. Cassidy looks so "little girl" and not so much "baby" in this one. Her hair is so pretty! :)
