Game Controller

Hello guys. It's been incredibly quiet over on my blog lately, with my DT posts going live and that's about it. It's not like I don't have cards to share with you guys, it's just an total chore getting them typed up with this ridiculous keyboard of mine. Ohhh, laptop problems.

Anywho. I will try and correct that over the next few days and get some posts scheduled while I have the patience to type. :) I know I fall off your radars when I don't post regularly and that's the last thing I want.

Surprisingly it hasn't just been Christmas cards I've been creating lately. There is still a lot of demand for birthday cards, and wedding cards too, so you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that my blog won't be turning enitrely red, green and gold just yet.

Here is a card I created using a bunch of Silhouette cuts for a husband who is a big gamer! I thought I'd go all out and create a large controller to take centre stage on the front of the card.

I used my Paper Smooches Banners to create the sentiment above and below the large controller. I layered up some edged circles behind the whole design and I used papers from Echo Park for some boy-ish colours.

As for embellishments, I added a couple buttons, brads, liquid pearl and rhinestones. Oh, and the obligatory stars made their way into yet another male card from me. I cannot help myself! 

Thanks for stopping by today. xo
