Get Well and Best Little Brother Cards

Happy Thursday! One more day until the weekend! YEAH!!! I just wanted to share some cards I made for Emma's ( My Creative Time) boys  Aaron and Anthony! I couldn't let Anthony not get a card! It is so hard on siblings when their brother or sister is sick ~ plus before or during all this he hurt his hand!!

The boys LOVE their baseball! They had an AMAZING season! So it didn't take me long to figure out what I wanted to make but it did take me a long time on making it! I know the cards aren't complex but Cricut doesn't have the layering I needed or wanted for their baseball caps! I looked for a full day on the cut I liked the best! I know CRAZY right! Then almost another day to actually go through ALL the fonts! Again ~ CRAZY me! But I really wanted to get as close to their baseball caps as possible! So after all that I actually ~ sit down for this one ~ pulled out that Gypsy. I seem to have a LOVE ~ HATE relationship with! I actually welded too! I even used that button (not sure what it is called) to slant the "A". I know some of you Gypsy Professors out there are laughing up a storm by my technical terms here!!! LOL. I did add the new banner dies to the caps. With all that said the end product didn't turn out to bad! Hey as long it put a smile on their faces that is all that matters to me!

The pictures aren't that great ~ sorry about that!

Materials Used:

Cricut Cartridge ~ Paper Dolls for Everyday ~ cap cut at 12.47
Cricut Cartridge ~ Calligraphy ~ letter "A" ( I think) 2.5
For the sentiments on both caps I used a variety of MCT stamp sets

My Creative Time ~ "All Star Baby"
My Creative Time"You're My Best Buddy"
My Creative Time ~ "Fly Away With Me Sentiments" ~ banner dies
Paper Trey Ink and Bazzill Paper
Stampin Up Ink
Sakura Pen
