I thought I'd take a little break from Christmas projects to show you Jacob's birthday card:
He turned 11 at the end of November and is still very much into Lego. Not having any Lego stamps, I made some Lego Punch Art instead. I've also used Big Top Birthday DSP, which is perfect for kids cards. I love using the paper corrugator as a more masculine alternative to ribbon.
Jacob's comment on receiving his card was "Mum, how do you come up with these things??" My answer..."I'm a genius!" (of course) LOL
To make the Lego pieces I used Pacific Point, Real Red and Daffodil Delight cardstock. I punched circles using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack Circle Punch. My Lego pieces are 2.5 x 2.5cm, 3.5 x 2.5cm and 4.5 x 2.5cm. I sponged all of the edges of the pieces and the circles. Stick on the circles with a little piece of a Dimensional (foam dot) and add a White Gel Pen highlight. That's all there is to it!
That's fantastic - my son (12 yrs) still loves lego too, so would LOVE this card :-)ReplyDelete
What a cool card, glad he liked it.ReplyDelete
As a complete Lego geek, I absolutely LOVE this card. Marelle, you ARE a genius!!!.....btw...are they brads or crystal effects dots? They just look amazing!!ReplyDelete
This is SO cool. Can't wait to recreate this one. Thanks for sharing the instructions.ReplyDelete
Hey Marelle, this is a fab card for a young boy. I always struggle with cards for kids, but will be keeping this in mind to CASE at a later date. Thanks for sharing and have a safe and happy Christmas ♥ReplyDelete
Awesome, Marelle! Love the Lego idea, would be a huge hit at my place!ReplyDelete
I love this Marelle! My 5 (almost 6) year old is way into Lego now so I might use this idea for his upcoming birthday. :-)ReplyDelete
This is adorable!! My son was a lego fanatic when he was little. Of course, he's 28 now. lol I keep saying I'm going to do one of these lego cards. I really need the punch pack so I don't have to re-figure all the dimensions.ReplyDelete
this is marvelous, thank you!ReplyDelete
This card is fab! Love the dimension that you have created.ReplyDelete
