So anyway onto the cards, the twins are really into Pokemon at the moment. I have to admit I myself am a huge Pokemon fan. I don't care if people think it's for kids I can assure you I am a serious addict and I'm so excited for the new games that are coming out, so excited in fact that I've gone and got a 3DS for my birthday. Up until now I've not been interested in owning a 3DS but I'm going to be sat ready on Saturday the 12th October waiting for the postie to deliver my pre-ordered copy with baited breath. Yep I really am that sad!
Anyhoo enough of my gaming rant, here are the cards I created. Now I'll be honest I started with the whole "I'm not feeling so great today" late last week and sort of ignored it and carried on regardless. Looking at the photos I've taken I might have been sicker than I thought, so apologies for their quality.
So the cards represent the games and starter Pokémon the twins are currently playing. I made the "Pokéballs" from circle die cuts and added a card candi in the middle for the switch. I found the cute images at Deviantart the artist lily-gerbil has a lot of different Pokémon lineart if you are inspired to create something similar. I found the unkown font over at DaFont.
I have to say the twins loved the cards and I got a lot of really nice comments about them.
Totodile close up, I went for bold cartoony colours
Chikorita, I added a bit of glossy accents for a dew drop
So apologies for the photos once again, they are much better colourwise in real life.
