Graphic 45 Sporty Father's Day Card

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a baseball-themed Father's Day card I made for an order this month. I went with a super-easy collage style made from Graphic 45 papers....great for a masculine card without any fancy doo-dads.

I often use a 5-1/2" square format when I make this kind of card so the ephemera fits without being too crowded. I know this size takes extra postage if it is being mailed, but since this was going to be hand delivered it didn't make any difference. I do try to keep that in mind when filling orders.

Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 "Good Ol' Sport" Collection
Distress Ink in Bundled Sage to ink edges of panels
Buttons from my stash
Core'dinations cardstock for card base

Hope you liked this simple vintage-looking card. Have a great day and rest of the week!!!

  1. Ooo . . . fabulous card!! This is perfect for a guy that loves baseball! Thanks for playing with the House That Stamps Built.

  2. This is very beautiful and sophiscated vintage card, Janis ! Love the various shapes and dimension and the patterns ! I'm a big fan of vintage styles although I seldom make them just because I don't have enough time to enjoy things other than DT cards.
    Thanks for sharing this pretty card with us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge :)

    Have a great day !

  3. This would be great for one of my sons.

  4. Great vintage looking card. Hugs Mrs A.

  5. Vintage designs are always so great for masculine cards and this would work even for a non-sports fan. The plaid background paper anchors these great sports images and the buttons add a nice bit of textural interest.


THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Your kind words encourage me so very much!!!

Have a lovely day!
