I went kinda CAS and masculine with today’s card. First, I cut out three strips with the open version of the new Die-namics Retro Border using Black Licorice card stock, backed then with three patterned papers, cut with the solid version, then adhered them all to a Kraft card stock base. Then I cut the jersey from the new Jersey Die-namics and Stamp Set and stamped the “#1” from the set. Then I stamped “Grandpa” from Clearly Sentimental About Grandparents and popped it up on foam dots. Finally, I cut a Die-namics Star STAX from corrugated paper and added a Black Licorice button and some twine.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Grandparents.
