Create Your Own Baseball Die Cut for More Alternative Cards using May 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit

Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey. Today is my third alternative card idea using the May 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Batter Up. With this fun baseball themed masculine handmade card I needed another Baseball Die Cut and so created my own with just a couple simple products. I love the earthy color scheme for this card, the red, yellow, and blue really pop from the brown of the cardbase.

I love creating alternative cards with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more as I continue to create with this month’s kit. I would love to see your finished creations that are inspired by this tutorial! You can tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey | #creativechelsey or email me at

1- Remove the front from the back of the Woodgrain Cardbase at 4 ¼”. Trim the both pieces to 4” x 5 ¼” Add the front piece to the front of the Soft Suede Cardbase and add the back piece to the inside of the cardbase. (or just use the Woodgrain Cardbase as is)

2- Add the Bumblebee Cardstock to the center of the cardbase.

3- Cut the Red & Yellow Stripe Rectangle in half at 1 ¼”. Add this to the left of the Bumblebee Cardstock with about ¼” showing on the left.

4- To create the Baseball – Use one 2” as your guide. Draw two lines going through the circle at the diameter creating an X shape. The two sides of the circle between the lines is where you will trace the curve onto the second 2” circle. Use a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker and draw two curves inside the second circle.

Then draw on V shape stiches. Watch video below for a visual. Use a Sponge Dauber and Smoky Slate ink to distress the edges and add a little texture to the inside of the “Ball”.

5- Add the Baseball & Bat to the right side of the Red & Yellow Stripe piece with dimensionals.

6- Stamp the greeting “Greatest” in Night of Navy ink on some scrap Basic White Cardstock. Fussy cut out “Greatest” & other phrases. You many need to stamp it a second time to get a nice border around each piece. Stamp “Son” on the Small Rectangle Piece and trim down the sides.  Add these to the card on the left of the Baseball with dimensionals.

7- Add 3 Red Enamel Dots.

All Done!
