baseball birthday card

One of my soon to be step sons had a birthday the same day as mine. I wanted to make him a special card because he (and his brothers) are so very special to me. He loves sports of all kinds so I knew I wanted to make him a sports card. I guess I picked baseball because that is a summer sport. For this card I used the baseball cart. I cut out the person at 3" on regular cut and then cut out the filler in tan, (white just doesn't look very good on the baseball cuts, at least I don't think so). Anyway, the field is cut out at 3 " as well and the baseball is cut out at 1". I used base camp for the font and put his name along the edge of the field. I cut the baseball out 2 times and used extra pop glue dots to make to ball appear to be coming out of the card. On the inside I cut the glove out at 2". The sentiment was computer generated. I hope he enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it for him. I know there was a lot of love put into this card....
