I used the Artistic Outpost Cracker Jack baseball card frame and stamped on white cardstock. I stamped the Boston baseball player on a separate piece of white cardstock and colored him with copic markers, added red pinstripes and then I cut him out and popped him up on the card frame. I then mounted the baseball card on red cardstock.
I really like this blue designer paper with red polka dots so I used that for my card base designer paper. I added a baseball bat from a SU sports set. I stamped the baseball word in Tim Holtz weathered wood. Stamped the Greatest past time in black ink and used a circle punch to round the end to look like a tab. I mounted that on red cardstock and trimmed the end of that piece with the circle punch as well.
I used a SU star punch for the blue star which I outlined with the red Copic Atchou glitter pen. I added 3 star eyelets. I used my crop-a-dile to fasten the eyelets.
This would be a great guy birthday card.
