Minnesota Twins Card
I received an order for some special cards dedicated to the Minnesota Twins! I started with the Twins sticker. It is actually mounted on the inside of the card. I took the stickers with me to the craft stores to match the colors. If you are wondering where in the world to get the stickers, I am not sure they are available anymore. My father-in-law is into sports and has his own business selling sports crafts. Years ago he purchased these stickers from a Hallmark store. He had them on hand and when I was searching for just the right thing, he happened to have them in his inventory. Anyway, I used a scallop punch to cut a piece out of the red cardstock. The blue strip on the side was perfect for pulling out the blues in the logo. I wanted to dress the card up just a little, but not take away from the focal point being the Twins. I added the white ribbon and bow to make them a little more feminine and add a touch of class.
