All Stamping

Yep I made a card with no designer or patterned paper, that just doesn't happen very often with me.  I have another great nephew turning 13.  September and October are the two months that I have to make a lot of masculine cards, I have a lot of guys born in those two months, so get ready for masculine cards coming up.

I started off with a DCWV Textured card base, stamped Studio G stars stamp in two sizes for the background. The sentiments and baseballs are also studio G stamps sets, after I stamped the sentiment and balls I decided it was too plain so I got out my Martha Stewart border punch and added that to both sides.
 I added some faux red stitching on the balls they were a little too plain for me
Spellbinders, Lg Deckled Rectangles die was used to cut out the make a wish sentiment. Did a little bit of shading with ink while the paper was still in the die.

Fall has arrived, it has been absolutely gorgeous here.  Temps in the 70's during the day getting down to the high 50's at night, just perfect :)

Hope your enjoying the Autumn weather wherever you are.
Thanks so much for stopping by,

I would never have guessed that was all stamping. It looks as good as any designer paper. Way to go, Connie! Cute card!
