Baseball zig zag card

I joined a swap where I needed to create a zig zag card with a baseball theme. Wouldn't you know it I had this baseball player image in my stash.  I actually had two of them so decided to make two cards.  I created the layout of this card digitally in Corel Draw so it could be printed on white cardstock which would reduce the layers and ensure it could be mailed for first class postage.  I created a background using black dotted lines which mimic a baseball uniform.  I added the baseball image (CLKER) on the left hand side and inserted a little birthday greeting then added the bats (CLKER) at the top of each section.  I duplicated another card on the other half of my sheet, laser printed it and cut them apart by cutting between the bats.  It gives the cards a cool decorative edge.  I folded the cards between the bats, sponged all the edges and used my stipple stamp (SU) with brown ink on a few of the edges.  I added a bit of watercolour to the bats and created a shadow on the baseballs.  I added the layered images of the baseball players on the right hand panels and left the center ones for a personal message.  Love how these worked out!!  They have a bit of a vintage look which I like.
