BOY’S BIRTHDAY CARD…..GO GIANTS!

May 28, 2015

My oldest California grandson was 11 on Monday and I’ll be seeing him tomorrow.  Whew!  I finally finished his card.  He’s an avid sports fan and that includes the San Francisco Giants.

Austin's 11th birthday card using the I Think You're Great stamp set, 138712The ‘seam’ on the baseball is faux (yes really!) stitched with pieces from the Chevron Border Punch that were trimmed down a bit to try to keep them in proportion to the size of the ball.  I pencil-followed the outside edge of one of the Circles Collection Framelits and the traced over it with the Basic Black Marker.  The punched stars are from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and are attached with Glue Dots.

And inside–or when the card is flipped:

A little closeup of the flipped side.  The Happy Birthday greeting is from a retired (argh!) stamp set, Bring on the Cake.  It was the ‘right’ H.B. for Austin.  The stamped stars on the front of the card are from a 1998 Stampin’ Up! set called Camera Captions.

I had to change the “I” Think You’re Great to “We” Think You’re Great

SUPPLIES:

The completed supply list has been posted, just above.  If you click on any of the current items (those with the links!) you’ll be taken to my Stampin’ Up! store so you can check them out and order them if desired!  My guests last night and I designed and completed 52 postcard type Thank You cards for a local fire department event that is taking place in O-C-T-O-B-E-R!  I’m not the chairman.  I’m just the stamper with all the ‘toys’.  I have to give the chairman lots of credit for getting these cards done way before the event while we all (3 of us) have some ‘spare time’.  And now I’m off to Dublin CA for a few days of fun time with my grandkidlets, 11, 8 and 6.

Have a great day.

*Did I tell you that on my January birthday cards from three Dublin grandkids they each very purposefully and boldly put big 7 – 1 on my hand made awesome cards!!!  What do they know about ‘etiquette’ at a certain age since their cards all show the number of their new year!?
