Cute ball cap card

Our friend's son, Nathan, had his 14th birthday Sunday.  He is completely into baseball, so this cute ball cap card was just the thing.  I designed it in Make the Cut! using Nathan's hat as inspiration and then cut it on my brand new Gazelle.  I just wish I'd taken a photo of it before I gave it to him!  He really liked it and told me he was taking it to ball practice to show his team mates.  How cool is that!

I printed the ball out using Make the Cut's print preview function and printed on my inkjet.  I then used the base layer of the ball and the hinge method to cut the ball (I haven't taken the time to learn the Gazelle's print and cut function) and ran it through the xyron to make a sticker to seal the envelope.

The letters on the cap can be removed and replaced with whatever strikes your fancy, as well as changing the colors of the whole shebang.  I used a glitter pen to outline the letter shadow and color in the letters for a little oomph.  I also ran around the edges of the black parts with a sharpie for an interesting effect.  It's so hard to just finish and quit tinkering!

I had a blast designing this card and it went together super fast.  The best part wasn't the making of it this time, but the reaction from the recipient.  That made my day!

Happy scrappin' y'all!
