Sunday was our oldest grandson's, Grey, 7th birthday. We went up on Saturday to share in the celebration. We are trying to give more "experience" gifts this year instead of more toys to be played with for a couple of days and set aside. This summer Grey would like to attend a Lego camp, between us and his other grandparents we've got that covered. Of course, Grey needed a little something to open from us on his big day and Legos was a natural choice. My husband actually went and purchased a set for him as they had spent a long time playing Legos one recent rainy weekend. He knew what they already had at home. I wanted to make a Lego card to go along with it. I turned to Stampin' Connection, a website for Stampin' Up! demonstrators where we post projects, for inspiration. And I found it here and here.
The Legos are 3/4" wide and a regular 1/4" hole punch was used to make the dots. Each dot was rolled across the coordinating color of ink to give it some depth. Thankfully, the "7" is pretty easy to make!
The inside was not quite as simple....
This is a short-legged Lego man. :) The Dress Form Pop 'n Cuts along with the Pop 'n Cuts Card Base, which I love and hate to see go away, were used to make the card. An extra "table" was cut from Crumb Cake card stock which I'd stamped with the Hardwood background stamp. It was used to covered the Daffodil Delight table to make it look more like a real table. Once that was done I worked on the size of the man himself using various punches. After he was completed he needed to looked more "birthdayish" so the hat and balloons were added. It was perfect that the strings fit right in his hand. The sentiment is from Remembering Your Birthday and cut out with the Deco Label Framelits. Grey loved it as you can see from this picture. (He's at the stage where it's hard to get a good smile.)
