It was my husband and I’s Wedding Anniversary at the end of April and if you have followed my blog for long you know I like to make really fun and personal cards for him! You can check out my Mario Card here, Minion Card here, and Kirby here! If you haven’t guessed it, my husband likes video games!!! So for our Anniversary I made him this card!!!!
I really love how it turned out and my husband thought it was really good. He mostly commented on the bricks which I thought was hilarious. He also said that she is cross-eyed and he kept trying to fix it 🙂 I started by making her head which uses Circle Punches, the Owl Builder Punch, the Bird Builder Punch (hair), Hearts A Flutter Framelits, and Oval Punch. I drew her eyelashes on with my Basic Black Marker! For the crown, I used Gold Glimmer Paper and punched 3 petals with the Flower Medallion Punch! Then using some Red Glimmer Paper and the Petite Petals Punch I added that red gem! Here she is close up!
I realized that I couldn’t just put her face on a card so I needed some background and that is when I thought I would create her Castle and make it look like she is hanging out the window waving at Mario or screaming for him to rescue her! I needed a little bit of her body so I punched some more circles! For her collar, I punched the Scallop Oval Punch and cut a piece off! For the gem on her chest I cut out one of the gold circles from the Gold Designer Vellum and trimmed it up! Then I started on the bricks which were created with scraps of Smokey Slate and Basic Gray. I rounded the edges with my Project Life Corner Rounder. I brushed the edges using my Sponge Dauber in Basic Gray and pounced all over with some Encore Silver Ink and a Sponge Dauber! That gave the bricks a bit of a shiny brick look! The placement was a bit tricky but I made it work!!! The best part is it was made for my husband and with love!!! After all our cake topper on our wedding was Princess Peach and Mario!!
I do have to admit that Princess Peach was not my original idea for a card……I planned on doing Grumpy Cat.
She just looks like she was in a fight and is made I put a bow on her head.
