Coach Thank You Card

Although I have the goal of completing ten scrapbook layouts this month, I keep having to pause and create cards, so we will see how many layout I get done. Here is another card, this time the group card from my daughter’s softball team to their coach. Coach loves Starbucks, so I was tempted to make one of those cute coffee-themed cards, but I also wanted to play along with a few challenges that pulled me in another direction, so this is what I came up with. 


And here is the card along with the embellished envelope:

Recipe:
My Game, Alphabet Solos "X", Thank You, Buddies - Joey, Starter Alphabet & Tickled Pink stamp sets
Capri, Honey Butter, Kraft & White Daisy cardstock
Capri. Honey & Sapphire ink
Sapphire baker's twine
3-D foam tape
CTMH Stripes embossing folder
Dot Fade stencil (Stampers Anonymous)
Cricut Artbooking cartridge: softballs
Cricut Artiste cartridge: heart, banner
Pattern: The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge May 2024

Challenges: Little Red Wagon #755 Create Your Own Background (I used a bunch of sports themed words/phrases to create a word cloud for my background); Word Power #5 (hopefully there are enough words on this card - LOL!); Color My Heart Color Dare #600 (the right hand column of Sapphire + Capri + Honey Butter was perfect for the school colors)

Tic Tac Toe Challenges #247 (used the diagonal with Dry embossing + Stenciling + Embellished envelope as well as the column with Twine + Scoring + Embellished envelope and the row with Stripes + Stenciling + Scoring)
