Daddy League MVP

Hello, fellow crafters!  Today I have a Father's Day card featuring Total Sports from Creative Memories.  I love how easy this cartirdge is to use and it is perfect for a sports lover's Father's Day card.  That description fits my husband, Tom, to a tee. Tom loves baseball with a passion.  I used navy blue, white and red as the main colors because the Yankees are his favorite team. GO YANKEES!  However, you can substitute the colors to show support for your favorite guy's team :)

The baseball glove (3 in.) and the baseball (5 in.) are icons from page 61 . The font is so much fun.  It is perfect for a lot of different sports and has the same look as the Varsity Letter cartridge.  I cut out the M (p. 59), V (p. 42), and P (p. 56) at 1.75 in.  The letters are popped up to make them stand out more. The ticket diecut is from Art Philosophy, p. 64.  I cut that at 2.25 in.  I was going to add a baseball bat.  When I was positioning all the pieces before I glued them down, though, it looked like overkill so I scratched that idea.  The "Daddy League" sentiment is hand written.  (My printer went on strike!)  The star is from a Sizzix die.

All in all I had a lot of fun with this cartridge and can't wait see more projects done with it.  I hope you have a great week!
