Hey there! I'm working on the birthday cards for the August Birthdays this Sunday. I won't tell you who this card is for, but they don't pay much attention to my blog or Facebook, so they probably won't see it!
My family loves to play games; board games, card games, video games, yard games. If there's the word "game" in it they probably want to play it! I've even known them to play TWO games at the same time all sitting around my dining room table!
I used a new Annual Catalog set, Game On, to create this rather masculine birthday card. And yes, there's actually two of them in this picture. I try to make two of every card I create; one to give and one to display!
I stamped the background repeatedly and collage-like with the die and the checkers/chess board images with Tuxedo Black ink on the Crumb Cake layer. The cards are stamped on Whisper White and then hand-cut (there's no dies with this set), but the lines are straight so it was easy to do. I just make sure I leave a little bit of white around the stamped image so the edges look smooth. I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a pop of color and bling.
I love this sentiment! Perfect for a gamer's birthday!
The chess image is so gorgeous I couldn't resist using it!
