Gamer Cuz

I'm back again with another gamer card! You guys always compliment me when I create boy and male cards, so here's another one for you to hopefully draw some inspiration from.

I created this card for my little (or not so little anymore) cousin who has his 12th birthday earlier this month. As soon as I seen this image released over at Saturated Canary I just knew I had to have it! He's gonna come in so useful, I just know it. 

I've been creating a couple gate fold cards recently, and it's gotten me outta a 6x6 square rut, so this time I decided to try a.. whatever this kinda card is called? The front panel has been folded in half back on itself and the image panel now completes the other half of the front of the card. I've made that sound so super technical, but really, it's super simple.

I used papers from My Mind's Eye, a bunch of Lawn Fawn stamps and some Cameo cuts.

Buttons, brads, pearls and stickles finish this card off. xo


  1. Perfect card for a young boy, these 'Star Wars' swords are a great detail. Love this folding, I really need to step out of my box. Thank you for an inspiration!

  3. Love, love, love! The fold is awesome and so is your coloring! Plus my son thought it was cool that someone else used "his" stamp! :-)


I would love to hear what you think. Thanks for taking the time to look. xo Lou.
