Gamer Father's Day ~ SOUS Die Cut Challenge June 15

TGIF!!!  Today is a great day for another Die Cut Challenge over at Stuck on U Sketches. This challenge is All About Fathers.  Today, I'm going to share the Father's Day card I made for my hubby.  He loves to play video games, especially his PS3, so I thought I'd make a gamer Father's Day card for him.  Here it is:

I got this fun game controller file from the Silhouette Online Store and cut it with my Silhouette Cameo.  I though it was perfect for him because (except for the colors) it looks a lot like his PS3 controller.  The sentiment on the front came from the Pink by Design Our Fathers Stamp Set.  One thing I love about clear stamps is that you can bend and shape them in whatever way you want.  So, I was able to shape this sentiment so it fit the contour of game controller.  I used foam tape to pop up the buttons on the controller, added some ink and some doodle marks, and the front of my card was all done!

To create the base of the card, I mirrored the background of the controller and welded the two pieces together in Silhouette Studio.  Then, I stamped a few more sentiments from the Our Fathers Stamp Set.  

Now, it's your turn.  Head on over to Stuck on U Sketches to see what the other Design Team members created, then link up you own die cut Father's Day project.  I can't wait to see what you create! :)

Have a great weekend, everyone!!!
