Happy Halloween!!

My favorite holiday is here! I hope your Halloween is as fun as mine :)

It is also a time for Kitchen Sink Monday! I want to share this card above (although nothing related with Halloween, lol)! I made it for my son’s friend, who is a big fan of Texas Rangers. I originally planned to give something I already made … Well, all cards I’ve made for the last 6 years, do you think I could find one birthday card for a tween boy?! The answer is “No!”, lol! A good thing is I could customize for him what he loved!

I used 3 Step Base Ball for the image and words. The glove were stamped as following these steps: 3rd – SU chocolate chip, 4th – SU early espresso, 2nd – SU close to cocoa, 1st – SU crumb cake (Mmm…these inks make me hungry now, lol!).

The words were stamped with shaping as the edge of the circle mat instead of stamping straight. The white border behind the red patterned paper was dry embossed with the embossing folder. I also added the faux zig zag stitches and added the stars, created with the star die. To finish off, the ribbon was embellished on the card.
