When I was younger, the one game that I owned and played repeatedly was the original Super Mario Brothers. I had that game memorized! I knew every level by heart and where all the hidden treasures and tunnels where. It was my favorite to play and still is. I'm not sure I could remember exactly everything but I don't think it would take long for it to all come back to me.
So when my game developer husband mentioned making cards based around video games, obviously Super Mario Brothers is the first place my mind traveled to. I had a lot of fun making this card! It definitely took me back to my gaming roots.
I followed the sketch at Mojo Monday this week:
But when I finally got my brain working, I was so happy with the result!
Birthday Bash cartridge, and I used my white and blue gel pens to stitch lines around each star.
The question mark treasure box represents the "flower" icon in the sketch. To make that box, I just cut out a couple of squares and layered them appropriately on top of each other. I cut out a question mark with my cricut, and then used my eyelet tool to punch out a few small circles for the corners. Then I covered it all in a nice layer of glossy accents.
The last item was the sentiment, which I used to represent the banner on the sketch. I downloaded the Mario Brothers font and printed out the sentiment on my computer.
