Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means – Technique Time! This is the card that I created for my husband for his Birthday! Of course he is super special to me so I wanted to make sure I made a super special card for him! He is a huge gamer and LOVES Mario! With a few punches and some cardstock, this is what I have created!
This was the card was created with Early Espresso as the base and mustache! Pink Pirouette was used for his face and nose! Whisper White, Basic Black and Tempting Turquoise were used for the eyes with different Oval Punches. Real Red was used for the hat! Using my sponge daubers, I added the same color as the cardstock to the nose and hat to add dimension!
The mustache was the hardest part….getting the size correct and the bump bumps (wish there was a mustache punch 😉 )!! Also, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder for a little texture!
The inside of the card had a One Up and Power Up on the left side! Those were created with my Corner Rounder Punch and Circle Punches! The Happy Birthday Greeting came from the Bring On the Cake Stamp Set! I love stamping that image and coloring in all the letters!
My husband LOVED IT! He lite up like a little kid in a candy store and then said so is this a challenge? Remember his adorable card, he “stamped” for me? I think so!!! Can’t wait to see what else we create! You can create just about anything with Stampin’ Up stamps, punches, cardstock, and embellishments!
