Lego Birthday - Cards for Kids

Howzit Everyone!
Today I'm sharing a card I made for my nephew's 9th birthday.  I used Lost Coast Designs stamps so this card is performing double duty as my DT project for our new April challenge.  The theme this month is "Anything Goes" so pop on over and join the fun at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity!

My nephew loves Lego and we went to Legoland for his birthday so I couldn't resist making a Lego inspired card.  The blocks were all made with a square paper punch and the dots with a standard size hole punch.

For the decorative panel I stamped the Lost Coast Designs Party Hats from set 2 and Party text from Party Hats set 1 in Memento Cantaloupe ink on yellow cardstock, the Happy Birthday text from the Misc. Words set with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink on blue cardstock and the number 9 from the License Plate alphabet set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on red cardstock.  I used a circle punch and punched out the number, edged it with Brilliance Galaxy Gold and mounted it to the card on a wiggly spinny thingie. 

All the "lego" parts and the stamped panel were adhered to a black mat which I embossed with a Cuttlebug bubble embossing folder and corner punched with a decorative corner punch.  All punches used are by Marvy.  I then mounted that on to a folded card I made from white cardstock.

My nephew loved his card and I hope you do too ;0)
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you over at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity!

Happy Stamping!
