Baseball Card

My grandson just celebrated his birthday and he is in love with baseball. To celebrate him and his love for baseball I created this fun card for him. My inspiration came from a photo I found on
I used the 4" circle framelit and Very Vanilla CS to create the ball, scoring the seams and filling them in with a black marker. I punched holes with a piercing tool and then used the holes and variegated red yarn to make the stitching. I stitched along one side and came back on the other, using the center hole for both sides.
Some sponging with Crumb Cake gave it the shading and dimension it needed. I used the now retired stamp set "Word Play" for the sentiment.

I really had a lot of fun making this card. Thanks so much for letting me share it with you.

CS: Very Vanilla, Raspberry Ripple, Birthday Basic DSP (130145)
INK: Raspberry Ripple, Basic Black marker, Crumb Cake
SS: Word Play (retired)
BIG SHOT:Circles Collection framelit (130911)
ACCESSORIES: Paper Piercer, red variegated yarn, needle, sequins
