Custom Card for Warcrafter in Love

Posted by Ruth at 8:00 AM
Here it is, my first ever custom card! The request came from a woman who plays a Draenei hunter and is in a relationship with a fellow who plays a Draenei shaman in the game World of Warcraft.

Hunters use bows and shaman use totems. It was a lot of fun coming up with a template for a totem (each race has totems that look different). I used a chipboard parenthesis with waxy for the bow. For the "flame" around the fire totem I used white ribbon colored with a SU marker.

The tree embellishment is from SU Thoughts & Prayers and the sentiment is from CTMH Picture Perfect.

Obviously I couldn't post the picture until the woman gave the card to her love, so here it is... a month later! I'm happy with how it turned out (and I kept the template for the totem!) I just hope HE likes it too!

For more information on how to get a custom made card or craft of your own please check out my post detailing the process.

How interesting that you were able to make a truly personal card.

I like how you used the tree for leaf accents on the sides of your card. :)

Wow you did a really good job on this. Be careful - novelty items like this catch on quick. You may be making a ton of these things judging at how nicely this card came out! :)
