Last week, when we had no electricity, the little boy next door had these little figurines all lined up around their picnic table. His parents were busy cleaning up debris from the storm. Not knowing what he was playing with, nosy neighbor (that would be me) decided to investigate. The little figurines were all characters from Minecraft, a computer game the kids enjoy playing. Brantley explained, in detail, who each character was and what they did. I still don't quite understand where the 3 black spiders figure into the game or if they were additions Bradley had made.
Why am I telling you all this? Because Brantley is celebrating his 6th birthday on Saturday and I've made him this card using the Minecraft character Creeper.
I saw a similar card on Pinterest but could not find any instructions. It took several mistakes, a few pieces of paper, and quite a bit of engineering before I came up with a plan. It's basically a step card with a few modifications. Here is the rudimentary diagram I made and followed.
This is the front of the card, also using the Minecraft Creeper theme:
I cut the center out of the white piece with a blade and scissors before I dry embossed it. The stamps are from MFT and the "6" was cut on the cricut with the CTMH Artbooking cartridge.
