Good morning my creative friends & welcome to another "Friday Tip of the Day"! Today is a VERY SPECIAL day, it is my Baby Aaron's birthday! He turned the big "13" today...it is definitely bittersweet because I can't believe how fast my boys are growing up:'(
Since we are all HUGE "S.F. Giants" fans, I just had to make a card w/the Giant's colors...orange & black! I really like how it came out! You can see in my video EXACTLY how I put this together!
Basically, my tip for this card was that you can make a simple background on your card just by punching out some simple squares w/a 1 1/4 square punch! You can see the very first cards I made using this technique (a long time ago) HERE & HERE!
I just LOVE these colors because they are my FAVORITE colors this time of year! It almost makes me want to go out & get stuff to make a homemad pumpkin pie! lol..... (seriously) ;)
Supplies I used for my card today!
~ Gift Card Sentiments
~ Grand Slam
~ 1 1/4 Stampin up punch
~ Paper were scraps from my stash
~Vellum -Papertrey Ink!
~Baseball & bat are stickers from Joanns from the "Jolee" collection!
Here is my video for you today!
