Hall of Fame Dad

I created this card for Clean and Simple Challenge #12 at Splitcoaststampers today. The requirement was to use just a bit of ribbon. Since I was planning on making my Father's Day card today, I felt that a bit was all the ribbon needed for this masculine card.

I used the fabulous 3 Step Baseball set by Kitchen Sink Stamps to create today's card. The mitt and ball were stamped first and then masked to add the baseball bats behind them.

The sentiment is mounted on dimensionals.

Stamps: Baseball Multi Step Clear Stamps by Kitchen Sink Stamps

Papers: White by PaperTrey Ink and Real Red by Stampin' Up

Inks: Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron and Real Red by Stampin' Up

Embellishments: Red Grosgrain Ribbon and Dimensionals

I'm sad to say today that Kitchen Sink is losing one of its fabulous designers. Nicole Cooke is taking some time off to concentrate on her education where she is in the process of acquiring her PhD. Best wishes, Nicole as you focus on reaching this awesome goal!
