Corn Hole Card tutorial

Hello friends!!  It's been awhile since I've posted.  Sorry about that, but I've had a bit of family visiting from out of state, and to me, family always comes first.  Now though, it's back to creating.  

I have a fun card to share with you today.  We're big lovers of Corn Hole around here, and have been known to host some laid back tournaments on occasion at our home and while camping.  It's always in good fun, but I have to can be exciting to be on the winning team every once in awhile.  Not exciting.........when you're competing for the championship and your opponent sinks all four bags in one turn.  SERIOUSLY?!?!??!  Now that's rude.  ;)

Anyway, one of my nephews was celebrating his 16th birthday a couple of days ago, and he and I have a fun rivalry going on.  I took great pleasure in beating him in corn hole this past week.  I know that sounds wicked...but shoot...teenage boys can be ornery, so it's an added bonus when you get an opportunity to rub in a win every once in awhile.  *grin*  

So, I thought it would be fun to design a Corn Hole board for a card.  All I did was make a 3 1/4" x 5 1/2" single layer card.  I diecut a circle toward the top and taped off a triangle shape using some removable tape.  I then added some Faded Jeans Ranger Distress Ink to the outside of the card leaving a white triangle for the sentiment.  The sentiments are from the Power Poppy set Party Time.  They fit perfectly!!

I also diecut 3 Double Stitched Squares (Die-Namics) to use for the bean bags and burnished the back of them to give them a worn look.  Lastly, I added some Pumice Stone Ranger Distress Ink to the bags and board to give them a well used look, because, lets face it...our equipment is well used.  oops...almost forgot...I added a black base to the back to make the hole in the front more prominent.

That's it.  Easy-Peasy.  Oh...and I should mention...the reason for the colors is because he's a New England Patriots fan.  My husband wasn't a fan of the card because of that...being a 49ers fan himself.  Yikes.  The things we do for family.  I tell ya!!

Thanks for stopping by!!  Be sure to drop by on Friday.  I will have another fabulous Power Poppy image to share with you.  It's Bee-yond adorable!!

   Happy Stamping!
