Happy December!! I do not make my own Christmas cards (I use Shutterfly), but I like to make other gifts and home decor. Today I am the Designer at The Bug Bytes today and I have a gift/card idea that can be used at the holidays, a birthday, or any special occasion.
Our son will go to college next fall. He is going to play baseball and my husband is a very proud dad! I want to give my husband some College spirit wear for Christmas, but Tyler has not committed to a college yet. He has it narrowed down to 3.
Normally Mike does not like to receive gift cards or money as a gift, but I really want him to be able to purchase what he wants sooo....I came up with a fun way to package the money!!!
I started with this baseball jersey from Everyday Paper Dolls sized to 4 inches.
I made a copy and flipped it to mirror the jersey from the top. I welded the two together to make my shape card base.
I wanted a slit so I found this tag on Tag, Bags, Boxes and More 2. I used the Hide Contour function to hide the tag cut and leave just the slit.
I rotated the tag 90 degrees and put it on the card. I grouped this cut with my welded pieces.
I cut the card base out of white cardstock.
On the next layer I put three copies of the jersey. I hid the inner cuts on one copy so the buttons would show through. I placed the other two jerseys as is on my mat to cut out in two different colors.
I added a "U" from Varsity Letter at 1 inch.
I cut out the bottom layer and "U" in blue cardstock. I cut out the other two jerseys in red and white cardstock. I wanted to go with a red-white-blue color scheme as baseball is America's pastime!!
I cut apart the red layer along the inner cuts.
I adhered the layers together to create my baseball jersey card.
I am able to tuck the cash inside the card. I hope he likes his "spirit wear" to be!!
