PLAY BALL!!!! Masculine Monday #20

I've been wanting to make this baseball for a long time so last night
I sat down with a die cut circle, a paper piercer and some embroidery thread and had some fun with this week's Masculine Monday card.

This was super easy - not sure why it took me so long to try it.


1 - die cut a circle (whatever size you want)
2 - use the same die and a pencil to trace an arc for the stitching

3 - use a paper piercer to poke holes for the stitching

4 - start the thread from the back

5 - place the stitches upwards on a slight angle

6 - to finish, pull the thread through the stitches on the back
(as seen in pic 4)

Told you it was easy!
Because I spent so much of my youth on the ball field and always had such
fun, I wanted the rest of the card to be fun as well. I kept it simple but used
some big, bold b&w stripes for the background and a few stars for a bit more fun. Hope you like it and are inspired to give it a try.

Happy Stampin'
