Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #221: Take Me Out to the Ballgame

This week's challenge over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" to create a sports related project using the Cricut.

I made this card for my brother-in-law's birthday because he is an avid Oriole's fan and his bday falls right in the heart of the season (doesn't it feel like baseball season lasts all year anyway though?).

I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 cartridge for the Happy Birthday cut and staggered three layers of black, white & orange. I used orange/yellow glitter for the candle flame.

For the bird, I used the Create a Critter 2 cartridge and added a googly eye for fun. The baseball stamps are Stampin' Up. My BIL loved this card and it was pretty simple to make.

Next year I may have to bite the bullet and make him a Ravens themed football card even though I'm a huge Steelers fan. Ugh. But oh well - that's the fun of tailoring cards for people. It's what they like that makes the theme fun! :)

Sincerely, Brit
