It was my husband’s birthday last weekend and so we all know I had to make him a special card for his Birthday! You can check out some of the past cards I have made here, here, and here! Well here is the card for this year……drum roll…….
There he is with his Dr. Mario Card that I created! If you know him or checked out the past cards I have made, you will see a theme going on here. He loves video games and Mario! After all we had Mario and Peach as our cake topper at our wedding! 🙂 So naturally, we got up early to go wait in line at Target in November to get the Nintendo Classic Mini. Brad then introduced me to Dr. Mario and I think I’m more addicted to it then he is. Every evening we battle each other so when I needed to make his birthday card, this came to mind! While it may not look exactly like the Dr. Mario game, it was made with love and all my heart!!!
I started with a Whisper White card base. Then I took a piece of Basic Black and rounded the corners with the Corner Rounder Punch. I used the Classic Label Punch to do the indention on both sides towards the top. Since it was such a tight spot, I had to round those bottom corners on that top rectangle by hand. I couldn’t fit the punch in there. For each of the blocks and “viruses” I used Real Red, Marina Mist, and Crushed Curry cardstock. I used a Basic Black Marker and Chalk Marker to create the little faces! I am not an artist at all and prefer to leave it to Stampin’ Up for the creative stamps. Drawing is not my thing but I did my best. 🙂 For the greeting, I stamped it from the Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. I did cut a few too many little blocks so I added a few to the inside as well!
He loved it and knew exactly what it was when I gave it to him! That’s all that matters. I love playing with Punch Art and getting creative to make a one of a kind card for those I love. Do you like to make super specific cards for others? Share in the comments one of your creations or ideas! I would love to hear from you!
