Next week is a special day for my g’son, Jameson. He will turn nine…oh my goodness I’m not sure where that time has gone, but I can tell you it went by at lightening speed.
So what kind of a card do you make for a nine-year-old boy?
That was easy for me…you see he is a Lego Wizard! Seriously people, he can take a Lego set for 14 and over and whip that sucker together without any help. Me…I’d die of old age first.
Here’s his birthday card…(of course, he got a Lego set for his birthday too!)
Really simple, but realistic and cute…
Three layers of black fun foam lift the number off the page.
And a peek inside…
Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…
- Paper: Thick Whisper White, Real Red, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush and Dapper Denim Cardstock
- Ink: Archival Basic Black
- Stamps: Number of Years
- Tools ‘N Embellishments: Black Fun Foam, Hole Punch, Large Numbers Framelits
- The Thick Whisper White base card is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
- The Real Red layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
- The top Thick Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″. Cut number with Large Number Framelits. Cut three layers of black fun foam and glue together with White number on top with multipurpose glue.
- Add sentiments in Archival Basic Black ink.
- Add this top layer over the Real Red layer with SNAIL. Glue number in place with multipurpose glue.
- Cut “Legos” in your favorite colors. Each lego is 3/4″ wide. Starting at bottom 2-3/4″, 2″, 1-1/2″ and 1″ lengths for each color. Punch 4, 6 or eight circles with hole punch and add to lego with glue dots. Add legos stacked like a birthday cake with dimensionals.
- Inside the Real Red layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
- The Thick Whisper White layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″. Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black and attach with SNAIL.
I’m hoping Jameson will think this card is really neat and he loves his new space ship lego set!
Keeping all our family and friends close to our hearts this weekend as we wait for Irma to pass.
