Jack is a very excited boy today! He is going to his very first classmate's birthday party! He brought the invitation home from school a few days back and said, "Mom, Camden's having a birthday party at the pool. Can I please, please, please go?" How could this mom say 'no' to the puppy dog face he was giving me? The invitation was a Minecraft one so I knew right away that's what I was going to be making. Let me introduce you to the Creeper. He's made up of 1/2" squares of Garden Green, Pear Pizazz, Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke and Basic Black card stock. After they were all adhered down I applied a pretty generous layer of Crystal Effects. I know we longer sell it, but I still have a few bottles and this helped to 'seal' down all the little corners of each of the squares. It's pretty neat to see in person. I also personalized the card front by using the Little Letters thinlets that are also retired (which will forever stay in my 'keep no matter what' pile) as they are the perfect small size for jobs like this.
I wanted to show you the inside of the card (not to necessarily point out the retired greeting I used *wink wink*), but to show you how I used some of the extra squares I had left over. Jack thought I did a good job. He gave me two thumbs up! Happy Stamping!
