Happy Birthday for World Card Making Day

I managed to break away from a very tedious project in order to make a birthday card for my nephew, and since it was World Card Making Day it worked out perfectly! Actually, if I hadn't finished this, my name would be mud and we can't have that, can we?
Eleven - kinda an on-the-cusp year, now in Jr. High, no longer a baby, a big boy, so this is what I came up with for our video game addict. I used the DCWV Generation Tech stack, dimensional video game stickers from Jolee and this perfect image from Mo's Digital Pencil. It even looks like him so choosing it was a no-brainer. Of course, he's mounted on an Action Wobble; after all, video games require lots of motion, or so I'm told :)
Inside, I made a pocket for a gift card and added more goodies. Is there any theme that Jolee's doesn't have embellies for? If so, I'm sure she will soon!!

and, of course, the inside

Now back to work as I hope I can be finished with these projects sometime in this lifetime! I'm missin' my fun time!!!!!


  1. What a very creative card for the young man. I am sure that he will treasure it.
