This card is for my grandson, Skyler.  Skyler just turned 13 years old!!!  I can't believe he's a teenager already!  Wow!
Many, many months ago Skyler told me he wanted a San Francisco Giants card in orange and black and he wanted it embossed with an embossing folder, so this is what I came up with.
The "2012 World Champions" was done as a water mark in my Printshop 6 card program, and the "San Francisco Giants 2012" was printed over that in the same program.  I then glued on the baseball at the bottom which was a free online image, and then I did the embedded embossing technique with a Sizzix diamond embossing folder.  I typed out the Happy "13th" Birthday Champ! in my card program and cut and then embossed it with a Spellbinder's oval die, and raised it up with foam tape.
Skyler was VERY happy with the card!  :)

I play cards once a week with three of my neighbors and we have a lot of fun and a lot of laughs.  I made this card for Larry's birthday.  
The Happy Birthday background was done in my Printshop 6 card program.  The decorative border below that was done with a Fiscars border punch. and the embossed diamond background was done with a Sizzix embossing folder.  The cards (Aces) were a free online image that I printed out, cut out, and raised up with foam tape.  The little Game On tag was made with a Provo Craft die.  I added a little baker's twine, and walla!!! it was done!!!

Just a simple, but cute card this time.  I'm happy with the way it turned out.  

The top and bottom images were free-online images.  

Dillon in the middle was done in my card program.  

The balls on the bottom were cut out and raised up twice to give the card a little dimension.
