Stars & Stripes with the Crafter's Cafe

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge this week is Stars & Stripes. We're sponsored by Melonheadz, and I used their 4th of July Bundle along with Graphic45 papers to create this baseball-themed card:


The baseball is a digi from Fitztown. I colored it with a red marker & distressed it with Antique Linen ink. It's attached with an Action Wobble.

The pre-colored star borders from Melonheadz were cut with a YNS die and edged with Copics. I went over the Copic edging with a Blender pen to create a distressed feel. The background papers and baseball card are Graphic45 papers. I used a distressing tool to age the card. My dad played baseball in Cornell, Wisconsin, when he was a boy so this card has special meaning to me!

Inspiration/Challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe #234 Challenge: Sport
Dream Valley Challenges: Distressing
Morgan's Art World: Red, White & Blue
Wobble Wednesday Challenge: Sports + Action Wobble
YNS Challenge #18: Sketch + YNS die
