Home Run for Connie Can Crop

I’m happy to be sharing my Design Team project for Connie Can Crop today and I’m using a cut file from our sponsor this month, The Cutting Cafe, who is generously giving two lucky winners three cut files of their choice.  For more details about this, just click on the link to Connie’s blog.

With Spring in the air, it’s time to think about things like…baseball!  So I decided I would share a baseball card that’s a real home run!

home run-1

I used the Baseball and Bat Shaped Card Set to create this realistic base-ball made from Real Red and Whisper White card stock from Stampin’ Up.  It’s on a base of real red as well.  I wanted to make the card beefier, so what pairs better with a base-ball than a mitt?  I found clip art that served me well, sized, traced and cut it to create a nice backdrop to show off the base-ball, which is the real star.  To finish off the front, I added a Real Red grosgrain bow and a bat shaped button.

Home run 2

I created a subway art type of panel for the inside and I think it finishes this card off nicely when paired with the sentiment on the lower panel.

Home run 3

I haven’t made the bat from this set, but I’m looking forward to it.  It’s a cute as the base-ball.

That’s it for me today except to remind you there’s still time to enter Connie Can Crop’s Queen Bee challenge to make something with either a queen or a bee theme.  You have until April 30th, 12:00 PM PST.
