End of another season
I hope you all had a wonderful, happy, and safe 4th of July. It was so nice to be away, with family.
I am here to show you the card I made for my oldest son's baseball coach. This is the first year he didn't have his dad as, at least, the assistant coach. It was a difficult transition for him and to be honest me as well.
I, of course, waited until the last minute to get something together.
I started with spring rain cardstock, to match the team colors. The main image is a Whimsy stamp and was stamped, once with staz-on and the other with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I had hoped that would help with the bleeding when I colored the image. It did with for most part but since it wasn't a clear stamp it was a bit difficult to make sure both images matched up.
The chevrons were also stamped with versamark and clear embossed.
I was done with all of that but after looking at it a bit I knew that it needed something else. That is when I thought of doubling the buttons. I think it added just the right finishing touch.
Since coaching takes more time than you can imagine I figured it would be nice to give him a gift for the family.
My mother in law a while back, gave us some popcorn plastic "bags" to eat our popcorn in at home during family movie night. I thought that would be nice, who doesn't like movies and popcorn.
Of course I added some hot cocoa mix to go along with it. I know it is summer but if they don't to drink it now that can save it for the winter.
I have some wonderful pictures I want to share with you soon as well.
