The game of life (Neat and Tangled release week)

Hi there!

It's time to kick off July's Neat and Tangled release with a first look at a fun set designed by Miriam, called Life's A Game.

The game of life (Neat and Tangled release week)

This one took me all the way back to my childhood! Hours of playing - how many kids will you have? Will you have a good job? haha. My sisters and I loved that board game so much!

I started by stamping out a bunch of board pieces. In the version we had at home, all of the regular squares were orange or yellow and then the "special squares" were a different color. I threw in blue and green squares to simulate those.

I cut out the letters to spell out L-I-F-E in the same way it was on my old box front. So iconic!

On the card base, I ink-blended some blues and green to simulate the grass and water patches on the board game - I took some liberties with that one!

I hope you like it! There's more to see on the NT blog this morning - click!

And remember to leave comments on all of the design team members blog posts this week - at the end of the week, Danielle will choose one comment at random to win a $25 store gift card. Good luck!
