Thursday November 13, 2014 with My Cricut Craft Room and Design Team-  Clouds

My kids' favorite video game when they were small (and even now!) was Super Mario Brothers.  We spent many a snowy winter afternoon playing Mario Kart.  Of coarse my son won almost every race!  But it was so much fun it didn't matter.  This week I decided to use Super Mario as the inspiration for my next project.  Below is my birthday card I made for my almost grown son whose birthday was yesterday!  Happy Birthday Luke!

For this project you will need:
White cardstock
Green cardstock
Glue
First I searched for Super Mario characters using Google images. 



 I uploaded the ones that I wanted to use into Design Space. Using the simple image option I cleaned up the image.



 I cleaned and saved all the images, 



I then printed out the images using my printer then cut them out on the Explore.



 Next, I used green cardstock to make a 4x6 card, and placed the images on the card where I wanted.  I glued them down.





I found the font Super Mario 256 from the site dafont.com  I downloaded the font to my computer, then used it for the phrase. "Have a Super birthday."  I glued this into the inside of the card.
That's it!
