Thanks Coach!

I made a quick window card for my son's t-ball coach.

I have been trying to use all of my carts so I have been wandering through all of them.  I came upon this window card in Calligraphy Collection and decided to use it.  I sized it to 7.55w x 4.76h.  I took the baseball glove from Sports Mania and welded the shadow of it (1.97w x 1.86h) inside the window opening.  I put the glove on the mat along with the baseball sized at 0.70w x 0.65h.  I put the baseball bat border on the mat sized at 3.39w x 1.16h.

For the font, I used Varsity Letter "Narrow" sized at .88h.

I put my papers on the mat.  I picked a paper for my card base that is white on the back.  You can always cut out the card base in white and also in a patterned paper and just trim off the front side to use on the card.

I cut out the pieces.

I saved the negative piece from the letters and used it as my stencil.  I ran the letters through my Xyron and stuck them on.

I pulled up the template and my letters were perfectly aligned!

I added stitches to the baseball.  I inked the bats, glove and ball.  My card is complete!
