Legos, anyone?

My son has been obsessed with Legos recently. It's not really surprising, when you consider that his father would probably still play with Legos if he had more time. This card was inspired by a few examples of Lego cards that I've seen recently, but the Legos themselves were most inspired by Cindy Shuster's card. I made this card for the birthday of one of Ian's friends. As you have probably already guessed, this friend was turning 6. Ian was so excited about how the card turned out! Instead of digging out each of the three colors I used to make the Legos, I used VersaMark to sponge the edges of the circles, square, rectangle and the number 6. I rounded the edges of the square and rectangle by hand with my Paper Snips, the corner rounder took more off than I wanted. I used the white gel pen to create a highlight on each of the circles and then popped the circles up with a dimensional each. I plan on making a few of these for my "stash".

All supplies used are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted:

Stamp Set: Occasional Quotes (current hostess set)
Papers: Whisper White Cardstock, Pacific Point Cardstock, Summer Sun Cardstock and Real Red Cardstock
Pacific Point and VersaMark
Accessories: 3/4" Circle Pinch, Dimensionals, Big Shot, White Gel Pen, Round-a-bout die (Sizzix)

Have a great evening!
