A Baseball Inspired Card with Gold Foiling

I wanted to make a baseball inspired card and found some clipart from Clipart Panda at the following link. http://www.clipartpanda.com/categories/crossed-baseball-bat-clipart
I found the big baseball and loaded Georgia Pacific 110 lb card stock into my computer printer and printed the baseball, the bat, and the uniforms. I colored the bat with my Touch 5 alcohol markers.
I put the big baseball into my score board upside down and scored it at about 4 1/2″ across the top so I could fold it over onto a 5 x7″ card base. I stamped the sentiment on the baseball from a set from Inspired by Stamping called Wishing you. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and then used clear embossing powder and heat set the sentiment. I used tear tape on the back of the baseball, especially around the edges and adhered it to the card, lining up the score line with the score line on the card. Added tear tape to the back of the baseball bat as well and added wet glue to it as well as foam tape on the top of the bat. I buy my foam pieces at the Dollar Tree in the automotive department and I really like them. I cut out the baseball uniforms and added foam tape to the top of the uniform to make it look dimensional. I added a big baseball on the inside of the card as well as a Pirates symbol. I used gold foil on the inside of the card and added washi tape over the top and bottom of the gold foil. Rounded the corners with a Creative Memories corner rounder. Added washi tape and a baseball to the envelope.
