Today’s card is for Day 182 at 365 cards. It is called Sporty Saturday and you are required to use a ball somewhere on your card. I looked through all my stuff and didn’t have a single ball stamp, sticker or chipboard. Then I thought, which type of ball could I make the easiest? The baseball won.
I began by stamping the jersey from Just So Sporty by Melanie M. onto a piece of SU Pacific Point cardstock. I stamped the words on the front and added some shading with a blue colored pencil. I trimmed the jersey using a white pencil. Next I stamped the cap adding the star to the middle panel. At first I colored the middle panel white around the star but that didn’t look quite right. So this is take two and I like the look much better. I used my circle nestabilities to cut out a round shape for the baseball. I drew two arcs in grey and then pierced holes on either side. I used a thin red marker to make the stitching effect. Smokey Gray Versafine was sponged on the ball so it didn’t look brand new. For the background layer, I used various words from the stamp set and put them on my acrylic block. I stamped them on an angle continuously on a white piece. This was layered to a piece of Pacific Point that was corner punched. I used some foam tape to pop up the ball, shirt and cap for dimension.
Enjoy your weekend and have a ball:)
