For my inspiration in this card, I looked at Momo. You can find her blog here. She has such beautiful cards and this one was always one I wanted to make but always forgot about when it was time for a birthday card. Since my son is going through a huge sports craze, I thought it was time to stock up! This card would be perfect for an adult or child, plus it could be a congrats for a new sports team or winning a game! The possibilities are endless....
My measurements are different than Momo's and she also used an SVG file. I used my Boys Will Be Boys Cricut Cartridge for this instead.
The card base is cut at 8 1/2" x 7 1/2" and folded to make an 8 1/2" x 3 3/4" card. I used Kraft Cardstock from Recollections.
The light blue or orange mat measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/4", and the dark blue mat measures 8 1/2" x 3".
As mentioned I used my Boys Will Be Boys Cricut Cartridge for all of the sports balls. Each one had a different measurement. The basketball is found on p. 44 and was cut at 2 1/2", the baseball was found on p. 39 and was cut at 4 1/2", the football is found on p. 31 and was cut at 2", and the soccer ball is found on p. 63 and was cut at 3 1/4 for the black spots and for the white ball I used the same cut as the basketball but in white instead of orange. I used foam tape on the baseball and the football.
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
