The first one was made for the head coach. I used a circle punch and not quite navy. Then I made my own background papers with pti argyle using bordering blue and not quite navy. Lastly I added some textured twine and a clear button to add a little interest to the lower right corner. The sentiment comes from a clear and simple set for basketball. I thought the saying applied to any sport.
This next card is for the assistant coach. I got some denami stamps with a beach theme and some Amuse sand colored paper so I decided to do this one masculine beachy. I used versamark and clear embossing for the shells and sand stamps. I had some old retired DSP with baja breeze, very vanilla and sahara sand colors so I did a mat layer of that and then matted again on baja breeze. I used a scallop punch for the bottom layer of the blue and a row of sahara sand on top. I was loving the textured twine and clear button so I repeated that on this card as well. The sentiment is from 'Teeny tiny wishes' and that was clear embossed as well.
This last card I made using pti chair set. I love this set but don't always think of an occasion for it. The sentiment actually reads 'one of a kind friend' but I realized I could leave the friend off and it worked for a coach. This is for the JV coach because I think he is truly one of a kind. Very patient. Very encouraging. A good role model and smart too. Anyway, this also uses the very vanilla, baja breeze, sahara sand color combination. I like this a lot. It works for a man, but is soft also. I paper pieced the DSP on the chair and lamp and cut out the cute doggie. The ribbon is baja breeze and I added a giant vanilla grommet. The sentiment is inked up with sahara sand.
Now, let's see if Eric remembers to bring the card with him to the luncheon and let's see if he remembers who each card is for. Hope you all have a great monday. thanks for stopping by and looking!
