If You Give A Crafter A Cookie: Game Boy

Hello crafty friends!

A special warm welcome to Fit Kitty, MaryH and Megan J, my newest followers - I'm so happy to have you here!

Today I'm delighted to share my first post as part of the DT for
If You Give A Crafter A Cookie.

Every two weeks we are given a fantastic cookie photo to spark our imagination and this is the current one:

I immediately thought of my teenage nephew, Callum, who loves his computer games, and his birthday is this week, so I made my card especially for him.

The generous sponsors for this challenges are:


My card was placed in Top 3 at Unicorn Challenge.

Here is my card:

I used an image from one of our sponsors,  Bugaboo, which you can find here
It was coloured with Spectrum Noir markers. The papers are from the Wildflower paper pad by Trim Craft. I matted each layer with black card for some extra definition. The banner is the largest of the Cheery Lynn Pierced Banner dies and the frame for the image was made using two of the Cottage Cutz Stitched Rectangle dies. I built up the frame by glueing together card and paper and edged it in black ink. The sentiment is die cut and mounted on black card which was 'bumped' above and below to give a shadow effect (and this also made it sturdier and easier to read).
The image in its frame was popped onto foam pads, whilst the sentiment overlapped the picture frame and needed foam dots to support it on the side.

Now it's over to you. The challenge runs until 5th October.  Please pop over to the
