Here's a cute baseball themed card I found on Stampin'Up!'s website.  The original card idea was posted by a demonstrator named Michelle Suit.  I tweaked it just a bit.  I really think it would make a great "man" card, or for anyone that loves baseball!    It's your basic card size (5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4") in Midnight Muse cardstock.  The Basic Black layer is 4" x 5-1/4".   I made a template for the Whisper White layer measuring 3-3/4" x 5" and traced a slight arc on the wrong side of the cardstock before cutting the white layer into two pieces.  I used Real Red cardstock and the chevron border punch to make the stitching, and poked holes along the way.  The star is stamped and hand trimmed using Daffodil Delight ink, and popped with a dimensional.  Of course a little "bling" is needed...hence the rhinestone.  The "a" was punched with a 1/2" circle punch, and popped with a dimensional

.  Stamp sets used were "Perfect Pennants" from the newest SU mini catalog, and "Sassy Salutations" from the big catalog. Midnight Muse ink was used for the sentiments.
