Thanks for a wonderful season!



Happy Sunday!  This is Melody again from A Splash Here and There blog.  Still very grateful for Pam for allowing me to share with her wonderful followers once a month Winking smile.  My project to share with you all today are thank you cards for the coaches and trophy tags for the kids in my son’s 4th grade basketball team.  This past season was the first time my husband took on a volunteer head coaching position for my son’s team, so naturally I was the head team mom (luckily I was able to persuade another mom to help Winking smile).  So very thankful that a few of the other dads volunteered to help out too.

Below is a picture of the layers before assembly.

 
Let me start with the thank you cards for the coaches.  The cards are 5x5 and all cuts were done using the Cameo.  The sentiment “thanks, coach!” was printed using the sketch feature using the Times New Roman font.  The fire flourish by SnapDragon Snippets LLC (Design ID #16979) originally showcases a soccer ball layer that I just deleted in the Silhouette Studio, then flood-filled with red and blue.  The basketball image is also by SnapDragon Snippets LLC (Design ID #10859)  and I foam mounted the cut images onto the front of the cards after running the orange layers through the bubbles CB folder . I used the Times New Roman font again for the coaches’ names and foam mounted them onto each card.  I used the internal offset feature to create an inside layer for the inside sentiment.  The font I used for the inside sentiment is Abbeyline




Now onto the trophy tags.  Although the trophies had the kids’ names and jersey numbers engraved on them, I still wanted to create a tag to dress up the trophies when we present them to the kids.  The base of the tags were from a “build a banner set” by Lori Whitlock (Design ID #25737).  I used the pointed ones for the boys and the scalloped ones for the girls in the team.  I used the Algerian font for the kids’ names and the Times New Roman font for their jersey numbers.  I think they add a personalized touch to the trophies Winking smile

Thanks for looking.  Now that the basketball season is over I can HOPEFULLY get back to my crafting.
