Mojo Monday #531

I just got my hands on the game controller die from MFT!  I was thrilled to see this set make a comeback. It is perfect for the gamers in my life! My controller is much more life like in person.  I mimicked my son’s controller, which is basically a mix of dull and shiny black. My card was super simple to create, with help from the sketch at Mojo Monday

My fun papers are from the Boy Oh! Boy Collection by Carta Bella, layered with Close To My Heart cardstock.  I used a variety of dies with black glitter cardstock for the Happy 13th Birthday sentiment. I popped up the controller with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Boy Oh! Boy Papers by Carta Bella

1385 White Daisy Cardstock

Crystal Blue Cardstock-Retired

X5961 Saffron Cardstock

X6047 Black Cardstock

Z3236 Black Glitter Paper
