Happy Birthday to my wonderful hubby today!
This is the card I made for him. I put it off all week lol…but procrastination can be a good thing sometimes. I picked out my stamp earlier this week and was going to color him but then decided to paper piece him in a New York Yankees outfit. I never thought I would willingly draw a NYY logo or make something NYY themed but I love my husband dearly so I overcame it LOL. (P.S. Go Red Sox!!)
I started by stamping the MFT Pinstripe background in Nightshift Blue onto Sweet Tooth paper. Then I stamped the image on top of it, cutting out the top and pants. I couldn’t stop there with the paper piecing though! I inked up my MFT Wood Plank background stamp with Natural ink onto Natural cardstock and cut that out. I colored up the adorable MFT Baseball Boy and added the paper pieced elements. I attempted to add red stitching to the ball but it does not show up well at all in the picture. I guarantee this card looks so much better in person!
The layout is based on MFT’s sketch this week, I left off the little flag on the front and stamped the inside with a sentiment from the set that says “Slidin’ by with a Birthday Hi”. Mike loved the card and was surprised by the theme 🙂
I would also like to enter my card into the Sports challenge at Crafty Boots.
Here is the sketch~
