Calling All Gamers!!!

Welcome friends, followers and family!! It's a really quick post from me today as Seize the Birthday is winding up the challenge today and I just realized the card I made for my grandson was also supposed to be put on the challenge. I got rather wrapped up with the cable not working and waiting for them to come finally called and rescheduled until today, they were not very accommodating. I also had the cottage to close up although the weather was so nice it was really hard to do it. Now all my crafting things are back at home, next step to find there original homes.  Here is my gamer card.

It is a set of dies and quite fiddly to play with but I'm happy with the results. The 4 dots on the controllers are pearls from Eyelet Outlet, since I didn't have black pearls (they were at home) I coloured the gold ones with a dark grey copic marker. Happy Birthday was cut from the same silver paper as the controller.

Close up of the controllers, Next time I make them the circles will be cut with double sided tape on the cardstock or run them through the sticker maker, I think I had more glue on me than the die cut.

The inside was finished with a Hero Arts sentiment (one of the first I bought) and a strip of the patterned paper.

I'm entering this in:

Seize the Birthday ~~ #176 For the Kids

Thanks for stopping by today and have a fabulous week.

I can imagine there are so many kids out there who would love to receive this card! Love the geometric feel.

This is a great gamer card! I am awaiting a sticker maker refill so I can try a spare Xyron a friend gave me. I can see where it would have been helpful! Thanks for linking up with us at Seize the Birthday!
