I'm so excited to be sharing this card with you! It's for my little cousin Callum, it was his birthday yesterday and i knew in advance that he was getting a Nintendo DS for his birthday so decided to challenge myself and make a Nintendo card. I started off by looking online for inspiration - but there were NO Nintendo DS birthday cards, that i could find, so i was on my own to create my masterpiece!! So using my own DS for measurements, this is what i came up with:
The Nintendo DS was created from two rectangles of 'Whisper White' cardstock, the first one (which is used to create the bottom of the DS) i have rounded all four corners with the 'Corner Rounder', the top one i have rounded off the top two corners, scored the bottom of the rectangle and hand cut the two bottom corners out, to create a hinge. I stuck both of them together (using 'Red Sticky Tape' to create the console)
The X, A, B and Y buttons have been made from scraps of 'Whisper White' punched out using the 'Owl Punch', the start and select buttons have been made using my 'Crop-a-dile', the button on the lefthand side is hand cut from 'Whisper White'. Finally all the detail was hand-drawn on with a 'Basic Gray' 'Stampin' Write Marker'.
The DS console has been glued onto the cardbase, in it's open form, the top of the DS has been raised using some Stampin' Up! 'Dimensionals' and the card fits snuggly into a 6x6 envelope!
I'd love to know what you think of my gaming make!!
