For The Plants vs Zombies Fan...

Here's a card I created for my hubby's birthday using Peachy Keen Challenge : Photo Inspiration. My husband loves playing Plants vs Zombies with our son, so my son and I thought this would make a good birthday card.

I scoured the Internet for pictures of the plants, the pea shooter and sunflower was all I could find.

I took a 6x12 inch green cardstock and folded it in half. To make the checkerboard grass, I then cut slits in the front one inch apart to weave my dotted green one inch strips of paper through. I had to cut a few squares of the dotted paper to glue on the first row of the card. And on the last inch at the top of the card, I put down blue cardstock and the white picket fence (which I forgot to distress). Oops.. I then fussy cut the images of the pea-shooters and sunflowers and added them to the lawn. Used two green gemstones as peas that shoot out from the pea-shooters.

For the sun I used my Peachy Keen Mini Sun Stamp (PK-?), and colored it in with my Copic markers.

Inside I glued a "note" (not from the Zombies) but from the friend who wants you to leave your door open and lawn unguarded so he could bring a birthday present over. I printed it on my computer, tore the edges, crumbled it, then distressed it.

I think it came out cute. My brother saw it and now wants one for his sons birthday in a few weeks.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my card!
