Lego Card

Hello and welcome to
Kristie Kreates!
Today I have a birthday card to share 
with you.  My niece's little guy loves
Legos, so I thought a Lego card would
be perfect for him.
I started with a piece from my stash that
I had created with alcohol inks on glossy
paper.  I simply swiped across the paper
with green, then swiped stripes across with blue,
 turned the paper 90 degrees 
and swiped with more blue.
  This created a plaid background.
 I thought this would work well for a 
background panel.
I then created the legos with my 
These were simple enough, just a rectangle 
and circles.  I cut them out with my Silhouette,
using scraps from my stash.
I glued the "base" pieces onto the background panel,
then used round foam adhesive behind the circles
to give the dimension of the Legos.
I used foam tape to adhere this piece to a 
white card stock base, to make a sort of
I made a tag to slip in behind the 
Lego panel.
I found a Lego font online, downloaded
it and cut that for the
Happy Birthday sentiment.
When Anthony opened his card, I heard
a "Oh Wow!" from him and that made
me smile.

Thanks for spending time at my blog today,
I hope you've been inspired in some way.
Now go be creative!
