Quick and Simple Boy Birthday card

I made this for my nephew he is big into video games (like most 15 yo boys) I put this together pretty quick and kept it simple.



The card size is 5.5" x 8.5"
I cut the game controller at 3.5" from the "Wrap it Up" cartridge pg. 30
"Birthday wishes" stamp is from Papertrey Ink
Cuttlebug folder "spots and dots"
paper is from hobby lobby
I had to run the paper partial through the cuttlebug a couple times to fit the whole page.
Piece of ribbon for the controller wire.
