Alright, I’ve made it home and in between trying to catch up on all my home life stuff (those piles of papers and clothes didn’t seem to magically put themself while I was away, darn!) I wanted to post up another card I made over the weekend.
Game Night is a new Spring/Summer set that I bought because I thought it would be perfect for scrapbooking the multiple trips my DH and I have taken to Las Vegas. We both also love board games – in fact my birthday party this year was a board game night at my house. The set includes the jackpot stamp, the sentiments “game night” and “big winner”, card suits, chess rook, dice, and dominos. Its something fun and different from all the flowers and bird stamps out there right now. 🙂
Now about the card. So, first off, I couldn’t seem to get the lighting to work in my favor and to show off the fact that the white rectangles with the red hearts are actually curved out in the middle (courtesy of pop-up glue dots) to look like reels on a slot machine. This card was a challange to myself to use the new Game Night stamp set for a card; and not for a card that just says “game night” with no other purpose than to use the set. 🙂 My inspiration was thinking hitting the jackpot in love and since I always have to use the slot machines when I’m in Vegas, I naturally thought of the slot machine reels. I’m still trying to figure out how to , in general, take my cards to the next level, but this was a fun way to play for now.
