I had the opportunity to work with Cracker Jack, a collection of vintage baseball images. Here's one of my cards........
The image and verse are stamped on white glossy card stock. I used Distress inks to add color and shading. I wanted a very vintage look. The background on the card front was created with various words and a baseball from the set, all stamped with Adirondack Espresso ink. The check paper is from Graphic 45.
Can you imagine going to a baseball game in a suit??? That was the practice early on in the history of baseball. How that has changed!
