Minecraft Birthday Card

If you have been around the world of popular game apps, then you probably have heard of Minecraft.  Honestly, I have NO idea what the big deal is about the game, but kids obviously like it!  One of my nephews recently had a birthday and my oldest son wanted to make him a Minecraft card.  Plus he insisted on creating the drawings :)  So this card shows the handiwork of a 7 year old and his Mom :)
 I embossed the white cardstock layer with a small square embossing folder.  Every other square is popped up with foam tape.  The final touch was to wrap and tie Chocolate Truffle and Twisted Lime Trendy Twines around the left side.  I also inked the edges of the picture squares with brown chalk ink.
I think it turned out very nice, but the main thing is that we were able to spend some quality crafting time together!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
