A good friend from our school's PTA asked me to make some thank you cards for her son's T-Ball coaches. The team is named after the Bay Area Oakland A's baseball team.
These cards have some hybrid elements. I printed the Oakland's A's logo and trimmed out the "A".
I found that SU! Summer Sun and Garden Green cardstock is a good match for the Oakland A's colors. The grass is not cardstock; I bought it at the last rubber stamping convention I attended. The baseballs are stickers that I mounted onto chipboard.
A few days before I found a great deal on white Thickers (Hat Box design) at Big Lots. Using this thread on Two Peas in a Bucket, I found that the Hat Box design of Thickers is a very close match to the Machine Script font. I printed the personalized text onto Summer Sun cardstock.
Paper: Garden Green, Summer Sun (SU!)
Tools: corner rounder (Fiskars), computer, Microsoft Word
Other: Thickers (American Crafts), linen thread (SU!), plastic grass, baseball stickers, chipboard circles, foam tape
