Xbox Controller Card

I belong to a monthly swap group - there are just five of us so it's not a 'chore' to make a heap of the same card - just 5. Every month we have a different 'challenge' and this month it was 'boys card' so I decided to make this cutie! lol The shape was cut on my Cricut but you could just trace an actual controller or Google a shape. I used just about every small round punch Stampin' Up! have to create the knobs- The larges is the 1" one. I sponged all of the knobs and added the white gel pen marks to create the 3D effect. The 'toggle' type knobs are on dimensionals - I also pressed a pencil into the back of them to create the little dot things on the toggles. The Xbox symbol I cut out of our brushed silver card - which was fun getting the 'curves' just right! lol I used Tombow for the adhesive - after 6 years of tying I've FINALLY worked out how to use it! lol . It's perfect for small pieces like these. Next months is a colour challenge so that will be fun!
Thanks for visiting! :)

Every Gal Loves A Red Shoe!!!

I don't know about you but I love RED shoes - I'm a lover of nice looking shoes but having size 11 feet I don't get many! lol but I love this one that I've made into a card. It's cut from Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black - I sponged the Cherry Cobbler with Cherry Cobbler and the black with Whisper White. I cut it all out on my Cricut which I'm really enjoying! lol 

Life has FINALLY settled down a bit so I've finally had time to do some crafting and so I will have more to share - thanks for staying with me :)
