A Couple of Gamer Cards for My Mum's Craft Shop

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

The sun is shining here in Gloucestershire today - doesn't that just make you feel great :o)

Today I'm here to share some inspiration for those tricky male cards using some fabulous stamps and dies from 

This set is just perfect for any of my 3 sons and these two cards will be for Jamie and Aaron whose birthdays are next month - loving being so organised - I wonder how long that will last lol!!!!
For the background I embossed with a Crafter's Companion Textures Embossing Folder then inked over with Creative Expressions Colour Cloud and then rubbed over some Gilding Wax.
The FABULOUS game controller is from this set 

currently out of stock but sure to be restocked soon
I drew around the outside of the dies to create a mat and layer - and I chose to do it in white and gold as Aaron had a custom controller made for Jack for Christmas last year in those colours and this card will be from Jack to Aaron for his birthday.
For this card I used the same stamp and die set together with MFT Blueprints 15
and the Design Paper is from this paper pad.

I'll be back later with another piece of Home Decor I completed yesterday.

Thanks for popping by.

I'm off to have a little bloggy catch up.

Have a fabulous day.

fantastic 'gamer' cards... I didn't know you could get dies like that... I cut mine out by hand but with the dies you get a better depth with detail (might have to look into that lol) xXx
