Happy Independence Day Eve! I hope you all have great weekend, and celebrate and remember all those that have and will continue to allow us to celebrate this holiday. Okay……I’m getting off my soap box now. 😎
I’m going to confess that I was lurking about on the internet and came across an adorable baseball flip card created by Lorri Heiling and fell in love with it. (Thank you Lorri!) My design juices had been trickling a bit and this gave me a good kick in the pants to get designing. I did makes some additions and tweaks to her design and this is what I did.
The first and biggest change was adding the flap on the right. I don’t know about you but my handwriting is big and loopy [grin] so I need space to write. I also added the “lucky you!” sentiment to the flap. I then decided to use the “chevron” trio from the Circle Flip Card Thinlits ensemble, they were a more comfortable size for the circle’s size. The card base was also created from the Circle Flip Card Thinlits ensemble. Don’t laugh too much, but I spritzed the Whisper White “baseball” before adding the drawn seams, faux piercing and chevron stitches. Helloooo……I had to sneak sparkle in somewhere. Finally, I went with all punched stars on the left flap to add a subtle bit of texture. My samples aren’t always perfect, I want my in-class stampers to see that their cards don’t have to be perfect to be enjoyed. You can probably see, I got a little carried away with the glue on a couple of the stars. Lol! This card hits the mark for…….red, white & blue for July and then baseball………they are all American. Below shows the inside (backside of “baseball”). Your comments make my day and can’t wait to read them. Happy Independence Day!
