Baseball Themed Gift Card Holder

Good morning ~ today I wanted to share a birthday gift card holder I made for my son's friends birthday! They played Tee~ball together this season. So his parents wanted to do a baseball themed party! Well I really didn't want to ask the Mom what he needed ~ she probably would have said clothes! Moms are the practical ones. The birthday boy would have NOT liked that at ALL!!!  If I would have asked the birthday boy himself, it would have cost me a great deal more ~ never want to disappoint them! So I thought gift card! Well Emma over at My Creative Time has the BEST solution to that ~ she has this AWESOME Embossed Gift Card Holder die! Perfect for not just birthdays but so many other wonderful occasions! I also thought I would , SIT DOWN FOR THIS ONE, pull out the Cricut! Yes ~ it has been awhile since I used it! Actually had to dust that baby off! I wanted to put everything I could on it about baseball! So after many cuts and may I say that baseball was cut out numerous times! This was the best one ~ sure don't like those small cuts from the Cricut but it is what it is! I am certainly not investing in another machine at this point. I added a MCT sentiments and some ribbon ~ done! I know he liked it because we just gave it to him over the past weekend!
