People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Take Me Out To The Ball Game




It's the season of baseball for me this time of year.
My son is on a select team and we have been traveling quite a bit with him this summer.  It keeps me extra busy but I wouldn't 
trade this time with him for the world.

I created this card with his coach in mind.
He eats, drinks and sleeps baseball and is so deserving of a thank you card for all of the time and dedication he puts into his team.   
My son is not only learning baseball but also 
life lessons, and for that I am grateful.

I actually used a Great Impressions Stamps border stamp for this card.


Using sections of the border I created my background paper.
I masked off the images I wasn't using and then stamped each twice to
get the darker and lighter effect. Those are nestabilitie squares for the bases and I added a triangle to make home plate. 
The colors I choose are my son's team colors.

This border stamp is so versatile. 
 It's also great for scrapbook pages and bordering a sports photo.
I may use it next for a collage of all the boys.

I like how you used the border stamp diagonally to make a background! Very clever! Sometimes we forget how versatile our stamps can be! Thanks for the ideas!
