Today is a special day here, it is my husband’s birthday!!!! I love celebrating birthdays because everyone has one and it truly is a day to celebrate life! Each year I like to create a special one-of-a-kind card for Brad. That is because I want it to be special for him and because it isn’t easy so I don’t be making multiples of this one!!! 😉 You can check out some of my past cards here, here, here and here! You can probably see a pattern here – video games!!!
For my Yoshi Card, I used various punches including the 1/2″ Circle (black eye), 2-1/2″ Circle (Nose), X-Large Oval (White eyes and mouth), Large Oval (Eyes, tongue, and bumps on the back of his head), and 2″ Circle (white cheek and green head). I also used the 1/8″ Handheld Punch to create the white dot in the black portion of the eye! While it looks fairly simple to just punch out the pieces and place them down, it sure wasn’t. The placement seemed to take me forever. I did trim some on the eyes as well so make less green along the edges of the eyes! Once I had Yoshi all assembled, I placed him on a piece of Pool Party cardstock. I added a few clouds which I punched out with the Tree Builder Punch! I layered all of this onto a Marina Mist card base!
It may not look exactly like Yoshi but I do know it was made with love and for someone really special. To me, that is all that matters! I thought I would share a little Crafting Q&A with you that I asked Brad.
