This week our cards are going off to an Officer of the Law, that was injured in a pursuit. Officer Troy was badly injured and is recovering, so the Teapotters are on their way to help cheer Officer Troy. I'm told that O Troy likes baseball and went to Penn State. So this week our theme is baseball and the Nittany Lions, mascot of Penn State U.
This card is a baseball jersey that is an easel card. I stamped the jersey and enlarged it. Cut it out and used it for the template to make the easel part of the card. The PS is stamped for Penn State. I used a small hole punch to make the buttons.
Nestabilities circles were used for the baseball and a circle to make the seams and a red pen for the thread. The mitt, ball and bat are stamped and colored. Pretty darn easy, once I figured out what I was going to do.
All I can say is, I sure do wish Officer Troy a full recovery. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers!
