Mishap Under the Cap

     Back in 2013 I was just starting to try out stamping, die-cutting, and card-making. I designed a card for my brother's birthday. He loves baseball!!! It ended up being - and still is - my very favorite card that I have ever made. It sits on a shelf in my craft room with a row of cards made with Lili of the Valley stamps. As much as I love the girlie Marcy and Mollie of La La Land Crafts, I also love the little boys from the Lili of the Valley collections. This little guy is no exception. 

     My crafting friends who visit my craft room are always asking if I will kit the card so they can make it too. My friend Diane came over a week ago and asked if she could get a kit of it. Because of the COVID-19 travel restrictions, I was able to find time to make 8 kits to give to some of my friends.

     For the inside of the card, I made a much smaller cap skeleton and used the leftover stars that were just sitting on the table after finishing the front of the card.

Inside of Card
     Here is the original card from 7 years ago. This Authentique paper is VERY old, so I had to find some newer paper from which to make the kits. The paper from Photoplay that I used to make the new version is also pretty old. I bought a bunch of it to make Christmas cards (that never happened).
