"Hoop" you have an awesome day...

I decided to take a little break from Easter cards, and share a birthday card I made a while ago.
I made these two cards for my daughter to have for her "card drawer." Her kids seem to get invited to lots of birthday parties, so it's nice for her to have a few different cards on hand for those occasions.

The basketball and hoop were cut from the Father's Day cartridge. Can you see how I debossed the basketball with the Swiss Dots embossing folder?  I debossed it a second time in a slightly different position so that the indentations didn't look too evenly spaced. When you do this, you have to go back with an embossing tool and and re-do the first indentations, but that only takes seconds.

The Father's Day cartridge is a "lite" cartridge, but I use it quite a bit for male cards.

The inside was the same for both cards - just done in different colors. I added the faux stitching with a gel pen. These were very quick cards to make, but I like the way they turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Great card! Love the hoop.
Always nice to have a stash of cards put away for when you need them.
