For My Hubby the GEEK

Last month was such a busy birthday month! Three of the most important people in my life, DH, DD, and my son in law all celebrated their birthdays in October. That's two guy cards for birthdays less than a week wonder my brain hurts!
This "mini" laptop card was for my DH the computer geek. In my search for guy card inspiration, I was delighted to come across several very cool cards made to look like a miniature Apple MacBook and knew I had to CASE the idea. But being that DH has always shunned the Apple Operating System, I naturally had to change it up to look more like his own Windows based PC. Simply used Make The Cut to trace and convert the ASUS logo into a cutfile and cut them from silver metallic cardstock.
On the inside, I used rounded squares and rectangles popped up with foam tape to look like a keyboard and used MTC (and Arial font) to create the alphas, cutting them out of white vinyl.
I used the computer screen to display my sentiment placing it behind a piece of acetate. DH always reminds me about how lucky I am to be married to a "computer doctor", so I thought he might get a kick out of this. I have to admit he's right though....because he has always been there for me and our family whenever we run into any computer problems!

OMG, you are SOOOO CLEVER. It really looks like a mini laptop. Bet your hubby LOVED it. Guy cards are always a challenge for me too. Have a great week.

Amazing! Just from looking at the first photo, I thought it was a new mini laptop. Lol! Great idea Eunice! I have birthday months like that too where everyone's birthday is in the same month.
