A Sneak Peak at the Baseball Party

Carter's 5th birthday party is tonight and we are getting so excited. We are watching the Cubs - actually a rain delay - to get ourselves ready! I thought I would get a head start on showing you parts of the party. To go along with the baseball theme, we created baseball cards for each child that is attending the party. Each child will receive a "Team Carter" set of cards. Each set will include one card of each child attending the party as well as 4 extras of their special card. Here is the team set. I took pictures of each child, uploaded them to snapfish, added this baseball border and had them printed as wallets. I bought blank baseball cards from Oriental Trading. We glued the picture to the front of the cards as seen here (my two darling kids!).
For the back of each card, I made up "stats" for each child as well as some kind of statement that you might see at the bottom of real baseball cards.

Carter is super excited about this element of the baseball party. I thought they turned out pretty cute and hopefully all the kids will enjoy taking home their own "Team Carter" set of cards.
