Have a Ball!

I have been working on some masculine cards for our Card Ministry at church.  I've finished up several and just need to make a matching envelope and then I'm done with these.  I kept these super simple but used colors to make them pop!


Here's a trio of the cards.  I varied the placement of the balls, popped some of them up on pop dots and left others directly on the cardstock.  I also used ink around the edges of the cardstock to keep in the sports theme.



I tried to make the basketball in this next card look like it was moving but I'm not sure that I achieved that.  I have some other ideas to try with this still.



Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed these simple but fun cards!!  Have a great day!

  9. What a wonderful idea, Jen! These are so cute--I have to have that stamp set now! If it's not too much to ask, could you tell me how your Card Ministry works at your church? I've never heard of that before, but it sounds like it might be right up my alley! My email is in my profile, if you have the time . . . :-D Thanks!

  10. I love these. I definitely thought "movement" when I saw the baseballs. It was obvious because of the curved sentiment.
