Friday Show & Tell: Minecraft anyone?

Hello friends! WARNING: This design is not for the faint-hearted or perfectionist! A Minecraft Birthday Party deserves a Minecraft card, right? I went to ‘the Google’ and have been educated about many things Minecraft!! Squares, greens and browns, mining, gold … so glad I kept my retired 1″ (2.5cm) punch!! πŸ™‚

STEPS: (1) Score 1″ (2.5cm) squares on a 5″ x 7″ (13cm x 18cm) piece of green cardstock; (2) punch lots of different coloured 1″ green and brown squares; (3) work out a pattern that you like; (4) use lots of adhesive and …

Ta-dah!! A card front:

More punching to get black squares for creating the number ‘9’:

The edges of the card front weren’t quite even, so of course I had to trim them (yep, perfectionist tendencies!) :

MORE STEPS:Β (1) adhere the card front to a panel of gold foil; (2) punch a gold foil square for the centre of the number 9; (3) emboss the black squares for added texture with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder; (4) use adhesive foam dots to attach the black squares; (5) adhere it all to a black hand cut and scored card base:

I had quite a few left over squares:

So I used them to decorate the coordinating writing panel inside the card:

A matching black envelope, and I was finished!

Thanks so much for visiting today πŸ™‚ I hope you have a lovely weekend and I’ll be back next week to share some more inspiration from custom cards! Megan xo
