Onto the retro card! If you enjoyed the pink radio from Monday, you're probably the right age to enjoy this card. I actually made it for the Gallery Idol die cut challenge, but somebody thought it was a bit too obscure-pop-culture-y.
Again I did this with my Silhouette, but yes, every single square was cut out and placed individually. I made multiples of the seven different tetris shapes in Silhouette Studio, then played around with them in the software until I got them to fit. I took a screenshot of it and printed it out so I could use it as a reference for gluing down the squares.
After that, the rest came together easily...some more rectangles, circles, and rounded rectangles for the buttons, Neuropol font (cut out of self-adhesive cardstock for "you complete me", printed directly on the green paper for the score [which is also our anniversary]), plus a pixelated heart. I made three copies of the buttons and stacked them for a 3-D look and also added some acetate for the screen.
I've also added all the Market Street Stamps design team gals to my sidebar, which reminds to me, if you didn't see it yesterday, there is a Super Sale going on until Friday!
Also you have until Thursday night to leave a comment on each Market Street Stamps DT Reveal post from yesterday for a chance to win a MSS set and there is also a new Color Cue Challenge today.
So remember you need to fill me in on: Do you like the new pages? I'm always open to suggestions of how to blog better. Can I make an open suggestion to everyone out there? Please no music (even if you're a really popular stamp company) It always scares the bejeezus out of me when it starts playing. What are some challenges you like to play in? Can you beat my highest line total? What other retro thing would you like to see turned into a card?
