Century ... Long Way Off!

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a male themed birthday Slimline card that I created recently. 

I am always on the lookout for stamps and dies that are suitable for male cards, so when I discovered this cricket themed stamp set some time ago I had to add it to my stash. Cricket is a sport that is very popular down here in Australia. The stamp set is from Woodware stamps and is called How's Zat!

To create my card, I used Pinkfresh Studio's Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangles die set to die cut a rectangle from white cardstock. I used Lawn Fawn's Grassy Hills Stencils along with Peeled Paint & Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide inks to create the grass area along the bottom of the card. I added Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide inks to the sky area.

I stamped the cricketer, stumps, and ball which I adhered to the lower portion of the card.

To the top of the card, I added the sentiment (century in cricket means the batsman has scored 100 runs), I also stamped a couple of birds which is from Hero Arts Beach Heroscape stamp set.

For the inside of the card I created a grassy area using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hills Stencils. I stamped the bat and the ball from the stamp set which I added to the grassy area.

To finish off the card, I added a birthday sentiment using stamps from Altenew's Birthday Builder stamp set.
