I could not participate this month, but I hope to be back in April.
Here is one card I made this weekend. My son works for a Major League Baseball team and is at Spring training in Florida for his birthday later this month. I made this for him.
I used my Scissor Circle Plus (112530) and Circle Scissors Plus Glass Mat (112531) to cut a circle the perfect size for my card front. Then for the stitches-here's where I got pretty clever- I used the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die (114511) in Real Red. I glued the "stitches" on using my 2-way glue pen. I ran the whole ball through my Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder to give the ball texture.
For the sentiment, I used one of the sayings from On Your Birthday (111644) and accented it with two Glimmer Basics Brads (121003). I've come to love these sparkly brads lately!
I hope you enjoyed this and might be able to use the baseball idea in a scrapbook or on a card.
