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 (http://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com/ ).
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
