Birthday Swishes for Paperworks Co.

I am so thrilled to share one of my projects for the new release at Paperworks Co. This super star is the perfect birthday card for any basketball player! A few clicks of the mouse and Cuttlebug will whip this up in no time! The wording is all computer generated then colored in with a Copic marker. This is nice since you can even customize it with the birthday boy’s name! The little basketball is also from the computer. Coloring pages are a great resource when you need a simple element to make your projects just right. I found the basketball here. I printed it out on orange card stock then ran that through the Cuttlebug with the mesh texture embossing folder. The cute dude is "Zach the Basketball Player". I colored him with Copics as well. I added some dashed lines and a few mini brads to finish it off.
