Play Ball!

Howdy Crafters - Regina Easter from the Cutting Cafe is have a Cyber-Sale today [actually most Monday's are cyber-sale days in which you can get a fabulous bargain on a batch of PDF/SVG files for your crafting pleasure- so make note of that.]

The Shaped Bat and Ball SVG or PDF are part of that sale today which ends at midnight at   The Cutting Cafe

I am using the bat cut only for my card today. [you can create a bat shaped or ball shaped card however]

I had the Paper House Patterned scenic cardstock in my stash which include the baseball - I cut out the shaped using my Cuttlebug and Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle die.

 I added the following to my card:
 The Cutting Cafe Bat - sponged with two distress inks: Dried Marigold and Tea-Dye - I used a marker to add the line in the bat and stamped the numbers on white cardstock using brown ink and my Misti - fussy cut and glued to the bat. 

The PLAY sentiment is a WRMK stamp I have had for years and this is my first time using it [good grief!]

 I used another Lawn Fawn Rectangle stitched die with white cardstock for my sentiment base.

Scotch Foam tape was placed behind the bat to give it dimension on my card - I am so loving this card and how it turned out this morning.

It would be an honor to share with:
