MINECRAFT BIRTHDAY CARD:

Hello there! Our sweet little Gabriel is turning 8 in a week and he loves Minecraft, so this is the card I made for him. Thank goodness I didn't part with my 1/4" Square Punch. It's long been retired, but it saved me from having to cut out hundreds of little squares!


I had a hard time finding any clear pictures of these guys, but hopefully
he'll know who they're supposed to be. I'm sure noone in their right mind would want to recreate one of these, but in case there's someone out there who's as nutty as me, here's what I used:

I started with a Crumb Cake base and added a 4 1/4" square of Whisper White Cardstock. I cut out 2" squares in Smoky Slate, Gumball Green, Blushing Bride and Baked Brown Sugar. Then I put the 1/4" Square Punch to work. I used Basic Grey, Basic Black, Pink Pirouette, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Early Espresso, Elegant Eggplant, Cajun Craze, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. I popped up a couple of the squares with Dimensionals to give it some depth. I cut out the sentiment by hand~not an easy task for these old lady eyes! I hope he appreciates this labor of love....but I'll probably be digging it out of the trash. Thanks so much for stoppin by:)

  1. I simply LOVE this card! My 3 boys (and husband) LOVE Minecraft. I know each of them would love this card - so I think I might have to crank out 4 of them!! Thank you for the ideas - I never would've thought of this!

    Hmmm, this might translate well into accents for a scrapbook page!
