I wanted to create a very masculine thank you card for the baseball coach of a friend. I decided to go monochromatic brown to give the card an aged, vintage feel. I stamped the glove first and then masked it so I could add the bats. The bats were added one at a time and each one masked before adding the next. I felt the card needed a little texture so I pierced the edge and added stitching (hopefully resembling the seam of a baseball) before sponging the edges with Chocolate Chip. I stamped baseballs on the Close to Cocoa card front and then added the stamped Kraft panel matted in Chocolate Chip.
I really love this fabulous 3 Step Baseball set. Not only are the images easy to layer but it comes with so many sensational sentiments from birthday to Father's Day to Thanks Coach (and many more).
