Gamer Card for a teen boy

This is one of those last minute cards you need!  I did this just before we were going to see the family of the birthday boy!  Hence, its quite plain - but actually, I think he preferred it like that!

Bit of a tale behind this one....you know when you put money in the envelope (to buy a game etc)...well, I was just sealing the one for his sister up (with cash) when I realised I hadn't put anything in his...and the envelope was already sealed....eeeeeek!  If it had just been me, I would have ripped open the envelope and then just used another one...but hubby offered to steam it open, over the kettle.  Off he went and did the deed.  Here's a question...what happens to home-made cards when you expose them to steam?.....Yep - the paper curls and the glue comes unstuck!  EEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkk!  

Amazingly, I did salvage it....but let my mistake be your lesson....just use a new envelope!

Thanks for popping by today
