Here's a simple card for the gamer in your life! I used a different fold for this card that is really simple to make. Just take a square card (mine is 6 1/4" square) and add a 'zig-zag'piece to it. The zig-zag was made from a strip of cardstock as wide as the base card and scored at 4,8,14 & 20cms plus 1/2 cm for attaching to the base card- see photo below for finished effect. You can make the zig-zags any size to fit your base card..it's up to you!
The game controller was cut from 3 different colours of textured cardstock-black,dark & mid grey-then layered up. Using No2 son's X-Box controller as a guide I added coloured buttons cut from scraps of mirri card. The finished controller was adhered to the second panel with foam pads. I cut 'Game On!'& 'Happy Birthday' from black cardstock shadowed on dark aqua then adhered them with foam pads to the remaining panels. I glittered them up with some black Stickles for a bit of boy-bling! You could add a name to the smallest panel along with the happy birthday if you wanted to.The papers I used are really old Dovecraft papers which fitted the bill nicely!
