#1 Dad Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a Father's Day card made for my grandsons to give their dad. He is actively involved with all the sports that the boys participate in. I chose to make a baseball card since the boys are keeping the parents running to games right now!
Card measures 5" x 7" white cardstock. I layered the top with a star patterned paper that was in a Paper Studio Play Ball page kit. Baseball patterned paper and the solid papers are from my scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
A Child's Year - Boy/Dad Silhoutte is cut 1.64" wide, 2.14" high from white and black paper.
Life's A Party - Baseball cut 1.00" wide. I cut 3- one to represent each son.
Phrases - #1 Dad is cut 2.75" wide.
Plantin Schoolbook - Oval mat is cut 2.25" wide.
Something to Celebrate - Banner is cut 4.39" wide, 1.52" high.
