Masculine Birthday Card for Baseball Lovers

Masculine Birthday Card for Baseball Lovers


hi friends! after a month of femininely floral projects, i’m starting august with a masculine birthday card for baseball lovers.

it features a few different dies with a common theme: stitching… like on a baseball 🙂

these colors work for several popular teams, but if you know a cubs or dodger fan, for instance, simply switch your card base to pacific point or blueberry bushel cardstock. since the designer series paper is neutral, it works with all colors!


can you guess which current designer paper this is from???
you may be surprised… i certainly was! it was a happy accident finding it, proving once again how versatile our designer papers are.


in addition to the above paper, i’ve also used the stitched dies found in the COME SAIL AWAY Suite (whisper white and soft suede [center banner] cardstocks).

the red stitched circle is die-cut with the STITCHED SHAPES DIES

the dsp and soft suede layers underneath are die-cut with the STITCHED NESTED LABELS (found in the BIRD BALLAD Suite… the featured product this month).

other all-purpose stitched die favorites I recommend (not seen on today’s card) are the…



  • have trouble with large background stamps?
    • place stamp face (rubber) up, ink thoroughly; place cardstock on stamp face down, place grid paper (or scrap paper) on top and gently rub over the entire surface being careful not to move the cardstock. lift cardstock straight up… a great stamped image every time:)
    • the STAMPARATUS also works well as you can repeat stamp any areas that might need touch-ups
  • to create the center sentiment panel…
    • stamp ‘wishes’ on whisper white cardstock first, then die-cut
    • adhere the ‘birthday’ die-cut, centered 
    • cut the soft suede cardstock banner (in the center) in half and apply ends behind the white panel
    • add the real red stitched circle behind both and adhere to card with Dimensionals
  • to create the side accent panels…
    • die-cut designer series paper and larger background layer once each
    • glue layers together then cut in half, adhering one set to each end of the card front

  1. I love this card! I haven’t seen the two stitched nested label dies cut off and facing each other before. (I’ve just seen people cut off one die.) I love how you joined those dies together with the birthday greeting, and I like your baseball theme for this card. This card is very eye catching and creative!! What a great idea!!

    • I’m delighted you liked the card Laurie and found a new way to use the Stitched Nested Label Dies!
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me… so appreciated! ❤
