Bowling Birthday Card

Another masculine birthday card. This time: bowling. Thank goodness my favorite SVG site had something cool to make.  Yup, and again from collection called The Green Room another fabulous card.  I love how this card turned out.  Finished card size is 6-1/4" x 4-1/2".
For the shirt, Cuttlebug Argyle was used on Recollections Blue card stock. The shirt collar is inked with brown and popped with foam squares.  The Vanilla shirt strip has faux stitch lines made by a micro black pen.
The "strike" sign is using Recollections Kraft and Red card stock.  Woodgrain Embossing Folder is from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby private label.), then brown ink applied. A white gel pen used for the faux stitching on the red card stock.  The Strike panel is popped with foam squares as well the "Strike" word itself also popped with foam squares.
See the bowling ball popped with foam squares?  The paper used is from American Crafts shiny black (also used for the Strike word) makes a realistic ball.  There is a Recollections Grey card stock mat behind the ball. The background mat is Recollections Red with Cuttlebug Retro Kitchen embossing folder. The bowling pins have brown ink on their edges and only the center pin is popped with foam squares.
