Ball Game Cuppie in San Francisco

Last weekend, my family and I went to a San Francisco Giants ball game against the San Diego Padres at AT&T Park in San Francisco. We had such a blast that day! One of the drilling companies that my husband's work does business with paid for all of us to get in. When we arrived, we all got a Giants ball cap, company t-shirt, and all the kids were given some pocket change for snacks and such. What a treat for all of us. We also arrived in time for all the kids to get a giveaway bright orange baseball shirt!

I thought I would make the drilling company a card so my husband and his co-workers could sign thanking them for their generosity.

Of course I had to use Destination Cuppie in San Francisco from Taylored Expressions for the main image. I also incorporated orange and black for the Giants team colors.  I used the Clouds paper from A Muse for the background so it wouldn't look to Halloween-y.

I colored this image with my Copic markers. For the sandy area, I used a kitchen rag soaked in colorless blender to give it a more sand-like texture.

I randomly stamped baseballs all over the inside of the card in Tangerine Tango by Stampin' Up!.

For the baseball, I punched out a circle from white cardstock and took a red marker to draw the stitching of the ball. Then, I stamped the sentiment by A Muse in the middle. I then punched out a smaller circle, cut it out in a spiral design, and attached one small end to the card and the other to the baseball for a 3D effect.

Thanks Pitcher Drilling for such a fun and fabulous day!
