Imagine Design Create Guest Design Team Stamped Retro Gamer Card – Game Over

Hi Everyone 

Today I am sharing a card I made with fun stamp set Retro Gamer. This set is so different and perfect for male gamer themed cards! I googled the colours and shapes for the classic Tetris game to try and create a sense of realism (as some gamers I know are very serious about details!) 
Check out the original Blog post here!

I have also used: 

White Cardstock: 300 gsm 

Distress Oxides: Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet 

VersafineBlack onyx, ruler, Black Fine Liner Pen, Black Cardstock and an acrylic block 

To start I used the ruler to draw a line along the bottom of the card (wide enough to stamp a 4 square block. I put a dot in the centre of this line and decided my game would be 5 blocks either side of the line. 

I then tested my blocks on scraps so I knew which shapes would be which colour and just played with the blocks building up the scene as I went along to just over halfway.  

I then put a border all around the edges, filled these in with 4 square blocks and stamped the blank ink in to create a pattern. I added the Game Over sentiment and finally added a line of blue blocks – as I recall the game goes fast at the end and the blocks stack up quick resulting in Game Over! To finish I matted onto black card and attached to a card blank.  

I enjoyed just playing with these stamps and hope this has inspired you to do the same!
