Hello there! Today it’s my turn on the Doodlebug blog and I’m sharing four baseball themed cards using Doodlebug’s new Home Run collection. I thought it would be fun to stock up on some masculine birthday cards with these fun papers! Up first I have a circle shaped card. To make the patterned papers easier to cut out with minimal waste I created a special Silhouette cutting file which I am sharing with all of you today. You can download it HERE.
For my next card I used the teensy type stickers to spell out my sentiment. To help me get the letters on straight, I used a slightly larger circle die-cut to help me line everything up. I simply adhered the edge of the stickers to the edge of my metal die and when I had them just how I wanted them. I laid them down, adhering the tops to my background paper and carefully slid out the die.
For my third card I added my sentiment with the love letters cardstock stickers. I wanted to add a border punch along the top edge, but most of my punches were a bit on the girly side. I was happy to stumble across my grass punch which felt like the perfect choice for a ball field.
For my last card I used the two fun washi tapes in the collection and paired them with some of the newest thin washi tapes and as well as a couple from past Patriotic collections. I finished it off with a sentiment printed on my computer and the baseball doodle pop. 🙂
