Play A Happy Birthday Game!!

Hi there!  Today I'm sharing another card I submitted to Paper Crafts for their World Cardmaking Day contest.  Again, no winner here either. 

I decided to for this entry to go with a birthday card for a boy since I don't have many of those and used the Game On card template and matching Got Game digital stamp set from My Time Made Easy.

I started out by downloading and printing out my card template onto Stampin Up! pacific pointe card stock, cutting it out, and sponging pacific pointe ink around the edges of the card.  Next, I took the remaining pieces of the template and matched them up with scrap card stock to create the arrows and buttons on the game controller.  Once that was done, I got to work on the main image itself.

After the image was downloaded and printed out onto white card stock, I pulled out my prismacolor markers and colored it before cutting it out and popping it up with pop dots.  For an added touch, I added some Stampin Up! buttons with thread through them to finish off the front of the card.

For the inside, I just kept it simple by coloring the saying and layering before adding some faux brads then lightly stippling Stampin Up! bashful blue ink around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
