Baseball Thanks

My son’s first baseball season is wrapping up, so I needed to make a card for the coach. Her son is also on the team, so I know she’ll enjoy this photo of the kids. First I printed the photo and since it was wide, I decided to make a long card – which measures 4” x 9¼” and fits a #10 envelope.

Then I stamped the banner on a piece of white cardstock and filled each triangle one at a time with Dries Clear adhesive and glitter. Set that aside to dry and came back later to carefully trim it.
Their team is the Cardinals, so I was excited when I realized that I had a cardinal bird punch. Of course I had to give him some sparkle too, so I added black and red glitter to his feathers. For the inside, I have an additional sheet that I plan to have all the kids sign and then I’ll adhere to the main card (no risk of damage from fourteen six-year-olds this way - *wink*!)

I’ve had a fabulous time as an Art Glitter guest designer over the last three months. Big thanks to Emily Miller and Art Glitter for the wonderful opportunity!

Oh my gosh, this is awesome! The coach will love it. The sparkly banner and cardinal add just the right touch of fun. The picture is pretty cute, too.

Fabulous! This could be my son's team except they are the Reds. I suppose I could glitter up a big C, right?
