Sporty Amazeballs

I just recently figured out that my Amazeballs stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays is perfect for sports themes, so I used circle dies to create golf, tennis, and soccer balls for this relatively simple card:


I made the soccer ball with a hexagon punch; I glued the punched shapes onto cardstock & then die-cut the circle. The tennis ball is made from 2 circles, and the top portions were colored with a fluorescent yellow-green marker & covered with yellow flocking. I simply dry-embossed the golf ball circle, but used the debossed side. I die-cut the treeline, embossed the top portion, stamped on the bottom, and then fit it back together onto 3 base papers.

The background color scheme of Mint & Navy was inspired by the challenge at Inkspirational. I used papers in 2 shades of both colors. I think this could be used for anyone.

I finished the card with a little "marble" sticker embellishment. My style has been fairly simple recently, but I think it appeals to a wider audience and of course I can always add embellishments in the future, if necessary!
