Cute Monster Birthday Card

My husband is a kid at heart :) To unwind, he loves to play video games; and one of his favorite games is PS3 Little Big Planet. I think the little Sack Character is so ADORABLE! And he (or she) is customizeable; so it is a game that keeps you entertain and is always FUN -- and very addictive! It seems to be a game that works for ALL ages.

So for his birthday, I decided to use my darling Cricut and the monster card in the Wild Card Cartridge that totally reminded me of his CUTE Sack Boy. I had to use it and once I got started, I was so glad I did. The Bday boy favors royal blue so this is what the end result looks like :)...

I used Doodlecharm Cartridge for the gift; this cartridge has always been one that is very handy to have :)... With Wild Card Cartridge, one of the FUN feature is the perfectly matching shape envelopes - they are so easy to make and add a special touch to the cards.

I used this funky retro pp from a DCWV Slab Stack; somehow it totally reminded me of buttons and game screens, so it worked out nicely - the colors are perfect. I decorated the inside too with another saying from the same cartridge - "SMILE" :).

The Bday boy loved my Sack Boy inspired card; and I had so much fun making it!

hehe I knitted one! That's how much I love my DH! ROFL! Pain the rear to knit too cos some parts are like 6 stitches wide and very fiddly. I have almost finished him, just need to add the trim fake stitches :)
