Baseball Thank You's - #2

Morning all.

Today I wish to share with you the cards and gift card holders that I made for my son's coach and assistant coach. The team he plays for is Macquarie Saints and their colours ate a tealy turquoise, red and black. I had to make them as blokey as possible and I sort inspiration from this card. Here is my interpretation....




Yes....in my never ending quest to not make 2 cards identical....I did change them slightly!!! The "You Rock" banners were elevated slightly in the middle. I was very happy with these....so much so that I made matching gift card holders.....


I tried to be really clever (not) and use a button as a closure....it kind of worked, but I needed to think it through a little better. Here's front and back and the inside......



Needless to say....the cards were from a bunch of 11 and 12yo boys and they thought the cards were "cool" so that was all the approval I really needed. Here is each set together.....



I will try and list all the bits and pieces, but listing them all in my mind....there really were quite a few!!!

Thanks for dropping by. Hope to be back soon.
