Sports Cards in Minutes!

I do a Card Ministry in my church.  I send birthday, anniversary, get well cards, etc. to all the church members.  It's not too overwhelming usually because it's a very small church.  But this week was crazy!  I had three anniversaries, three men's birthdays, and three ladies birthdays all in one week.  Well, I always have plenty of 'girl' cards on hand so that wasn't a problem, but the one thing I am always short of is men's cards, anniversary cards, sympathy cards, and get well cards.  I never seem to have any of those on hand.  So I needed male- themed cards and I needed to make them fast!  The first thing I did was choose a SIMPLE Sketch, and for me that was last weeks Splitcoaststampers Sketch (SC387).  Next, I decided not to use any image that had to be colored....that takes way too much time.  So this is what I came up with:

I found these adhesive FOAMIES in the Kid's Crafts Section at JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts.  All I had to do was Stick them on!  No Coloring or glue involved!

To give the cards more interest, I used a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder for the main panel.

 The sentiment is from Stampin Up! "Sporting"

I knew they were a hit when my sports-loving husband came into my craft room to say goodnight and saw them and said 'Those Look Great!'.  If he liked them, any guy would like them.

I hope I gave you some ideas for easy guy cards! Have a great day! Amy


  1. Such great designs!! I love the embossing folders you used for them!

  2. GREAT idea to use those foam sports shapes!!...I'll have to remember that. I never have enough MAN cards on hand either.

  3. A quick and very effective way to make cards that look great in a hurry. You are amazing, how ever do you do it all:O)

  4. These are fab Amy! They may have been quick to make, but they look great. Love the embossing
