Messy Mondays: Level Up
Welcome to another Messy Monday! I make tons of birthday cards, so today I will be sharing with you another one. This design for allows for some versatile greetings, so it could be a graduation or congratulations card if you want as well. Your imagination is the limit!
To start off this card, I used MFT Game Controller Die to die cut lots of mini controllers out of black cardstock. I love this die cut as it embosses the buttons on as well, giving it a lot of next texture. Next, I adhered on all the mini controllers onto a 4" by 5.25" piece of lime green cardstock. I trimmed off the parts that were hanging off the sides, and used some of the leftover pieces to fill in some gaps.
For my focal image, I stuck buttons onto one of the controllers. The buttons were die cut out of grey, red, blue, yellow and green cardstock and then a layer of glossy accents was put on top. My sentiment was made using Violet's ABC from Lawnfawn and the Three Amigos set from Mama Elephant. I embossed this using Versafine Black Onyx ink and clear embossing powder onto a vellum banner.
To finish off my card, I used a mini stapler to attach the banner onto my card panel and added some purple enamel dots. The panel was then adhered to a teal A2 side fold card base.
Hope you enjoyed! I will be entering this card in the Superstar Card Contest over at MFT and the SSS Monday challenge.
I am a girl who loves crafting and coloring images as my favorite form of therapy. I believe that as long as you create anything from the heart, it will be greatly appreciated and will bring a smile to the recipient's face.
