Thanks Coach

Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created for my son's Little League Coach! They went all the way to the championship, but were defeated by the number 1 seed. It was a great year and fun to dip back into Little League again. My son has played travel ball only the last few years..this year he has done both, so we have been busy.

To create my card, I started by adhering my textured velvet stripped patterned paper to my kraft card base. I stamped a wood grain pattern onto kraft cardstock and rounded the corners. I stamped the Thanks sentiment (Reverse Confetti In a big way) in the upper right corner of the wood grain panel and die cut the word coach out from red cardstock and adhered to the wood grain piece. I stamped a baseball and bat (PTI 7th Inning Stretch) and added them for finishing touches.

Inspiration was found from this great sketch at Sunday Stamps:

Have a great one!

Thanks - You're a Class Act


This is the last week of school here in my neck of the woods, and this very well may be my last teacher card I make. We will see, I don't quite know what to expect next year, but I have a feeling this is it.

To create my card, I started by first creating a green card base. I then adhered a piece of apple patterned paper I had in my stash. Following the sketch from Reverse Confetti SFYTT June, I cute three panels from patterned paper also from my stash of scraps. The apple was cut using felt.
I used the following products from Reverse Confetti to complete the card adding some finishing touches of enamel dots and trimmings to complete the look.
Here is the sketch!

Have a GREAT one!
