World Card Making Day 2016 | Bella Blvd

Hello sweet friends! It has been a little while since I've had the time to come and visit here. Please forgive my absence while I make memories with my family! LOL!

Today is World Card Making Day! Yay! The team over at Bella Blvd have come together to help celebrate. I've had the pleasure of playing with the brand new Alex collection!

Here's what I created:

"14, Good Job, Bro!"

products used: cs - American Crafts; pp - Bella BLVD (Alex); alpha - Bella BLVD (Color Chaos); other - Bella BLVD: Alex paper pieces, washi tape, fundamentals; IF enamel hearts; twine; embroidery floss; tools - hand stitching.

Any mum of boys could probably tell you that they have an innate sense of gaming technology! I was drawn to using the paper piece of the xbox remote as my focal point. Boy + Game = fun birthday card!! My biggest boy turns 14 next month, so it was an easy choice to create this birthday card with him in mind. 

For added whimsy, I've included hand stitching and mounted the gamer remote control onto foam dots. I also love how the patterned paper shows through the washi tape at the bottom!

Thanks for joining me here on the Bella Blog Hop.  Don't forget to check in with BB every hour to see all the fabulous creations being shared. Plus there might also be the chance to win a prize or two... hint, hint!

Good luck!  And thanks for visiting...x
