A Super (Mario) Birthday Card

See? I keep my promises. This baby is already on it’s way to Maryland.

Remember when I said my brother was a huge Nintendo fan? I hope he likes this. I was never terribly good at playing Mario. Actually I was just terrible. Chris, on the other hand, was one of those wiz kids who beat every game within an hour of getting it.

I thought this would be really easy to design with my Pazzles software. I wasn’t wrong exactly, but it did take me longer than I expected to find the easiest way to make it. I ended up copying and pasting an image from Google for reference, and then turning on the grid lines and drawing it freehand. Since it’s all straight lines and 90 degree angles it was easy-peasy. I’m not a huge fan of the auto-trace function in the Pazzles software. Maybe I’m not doing it right, but it always ends up giving way more cut lines than I need.
