Tennis anyone?

Hey crafty people!  It’s a bit cooler today and a much more comfortable temperature to get busy in my craft room.  Today I’d like to share a card I made for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge ( ).


As it’s the first day of Wimbledon I was inspired to use a tennis theme and I used a set of stamps from a recent issue of Creative Stamping Magazine (issue 56).  First of all I used a black pen and ruler to create a net effect for the bottom panel and I adhered this to a green card base.


I cut a panel of card from white card stock and using the tennis ball I stamped a background.  Then I stamped the sentiment “Happy birthday champ” onto the panel and glued it onto the card base.  I then stamped two tennis rackets and coloured them using my First Edition Graphic Markers before fussy cutting them out.  I glued one onto the white panel and used sticky pads to raise up the other and give the card some dimension.



I hope everyone is enjoying some summer weather and that you like my card.  Happy crafting folks
