Welcome to the newest Cardz 4 Guyz two-week challenge!  Our host for # 304, Helen, chose sports and hobbies for the theme.  Since my husband and I have been watching MLB (Major League Baseball) pretty much daily, I thought I just needed to go with that.   When you finish here, I hope you will visit the challenge site to see the creations from the rest of the design team.

Here’s my card:


Even though I missed the submission deadline, I found the layout for this card on Try Stamping on Tuesday, #570:


What I Did:

  • The Poppy Parade base measures 4-1/4 by 11 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches to create a tent fold.
  • Both pieces of the DSP (designer series paper) come from the Hey Sports Fan pack. The Night of Navy pattern measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches, which I outlined using a Night of Navy marker. The yellow DSP piece measures 3-1/2 by 5 inches. I outlined that paper using the Poppy Parade marker.
  • I also trimmed a piece of coordinating DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap. Then, I punched a one-inch circle from a coordinating DSP for the envelope seal.
  • The rest of the pieces also come from the Hey Sports Fan DSP, and I fussy cut them to replicate the challenge layout. I outlined the three on the bottom using my Crushed Curry marker.
  • Next, I added dimensionals to the back of the four pieces. Before adhering the large top piece, I tied a piece of baker’s twine around the connecting part and tied it in a square knot.
  • After adhering the pieces down, I added the Night of Navy and yellow stars.
  • I used some stamps from the past Paper Pumpkin kit, Play Ball, for the inside of the card.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
