Sports Birthday

Our nephew has played many sports throughout the years, so I wanted to create something around the theme of sports.  When I saw Martha Inchley's card... I just had to try to recreate it.
Here is Martha's card:
While, Martha used letter die-cuts and stamps or DSP underneath each letter, I wanted to use my digital software. Thanks Martha for your inspiration!

First, I created my own DSP (Designer Series Paper) within the software using the Stamp Brush Set - Great Sport. For each individual letter, I created a different sport theme paper (well, as you can see... I used the basketball one twice on my card).  Now that the DSP was done, it was just a matter of aligning the letter punches on the paper and filling them with the newly designed DSP.  I made the background a gray color, so that the 'c' and 'r' would stand out from the background.

I then printed the panel on Whisper White cardstock and finished the card by matting it on Basic Black cardstock and then on to the Pumpkin Pie card front.

Thanks for taking a peek.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Brush Set - Great Sport
Font - Arial Black (Basic Black)

Paper - Whisper White, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie


  1. Awesome; your original creations is always inspiring Diane (your dsps and such...). Such a fun card; TFS!
