My Undefined Playstation Controller Birthday Card




 My son Tyler is going to a birthday party of a friend who is a gaming crazed teenager- wait, that's my son, too!  I wanted something game related but did not have a stamp for it so what did I do?  Took out my son's playstation controller and drew it out and carved it from my Undefined carving kit of course! I drew it up, and rough carved it and then stamped as I continued to carve to make sure I got the image I wanted and it turned out pretty cool, if I say so myself. It took less than 30 minutes!
 I stamped it on whisper white using versamark and heat embossed it with black embossing powder then cut it out.  I stamped Happy Birthday from Bring on the Cake (sadly on the retired list- so if you need it, get it now while you still can! ) on a piece of whisper white and diecut it with On Film framelit and colored the words in with Bermuda bay, Strawberry slush, Crushed curry, Smoky slate, and pumpkin pie markers.  I then cut a piece of 3 1/2x 3 1/2 Kaleidoscope DSP and layered it underneath it.  I dry fitted the controller I cut out to see where I wanted it then used the black  marker to draw the "cord"  then mounted it using dimensional.  Stamp small Simply Stars (also on retired list) with Strawberry slush and cut out and mount with dimensionals.  Celebrate from Starburst sayings diecut with coordinating Starburst Framelit Die.
 I think it does make sense that the kids want cash since giftcards are usable at certain stores and can easily be forgotten and lost, but I still want to give it to them in a special way.  The envelope liner framelit die to the rescue!   The smallest liner is perfect for trifolded cash- Makes it a little more classy then just money folded inside the card.  Used another sheet from Kaleidoscope DSP to make the envie.  Added the Happy birthday banner from Itty Bitty Banners, diecut with Bitty Banners framelit and reasonably easy - but I hope he thinks Spectacular- card.
