Lego Movie Card in a Box


While many of you might be in full force Wedding season, around these parts were right in the middle of kidlet Birthday season!  And, with two boys, that means a lot of boy themed cards are on the way for your viewing pleasure ;)

The boys have been lovin' the Lego Movie and since it came out on DVD its been on constant repeat.  I know many mom's of little girls out there have the "Let it Go" song from Frozen still swimming around in their brain but can I get a shout out from the mom's of boys who can't get "Everything is Awesome" out of their heads??!!  I'm beginning to think that song has subliminal messaging in it cause I find myself humming or singing it randomly (ie: laundry, dishes, while having a bath...**sigh**).  

Anyhow, since the movie is so darn popular I thought I'd give Emmet a try in punch art form.  There are a few other examples on the internet but I'd like to think mine is unique.  I added a few extra details (like the Silver Glimmer paper to make the stripes on his uniform reflective) and think he turned out "Totally Awesome" (ugh, somebody stop me...) LOL

Stamp sets: N/A
Cardstock: Basic Black, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: Hello Honey, Night of Navy, Tangelo Twist, Wild Wasabi
Punches: Build an Owl, Build a Cupcake, 1/2" Circle, 3/8" Circle, 3/16" Corner, Window Label
Accessories: White Gel Pen, Basic Black marker, Sponges, Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue

Hope this little guy has inspired you to try your hand at some Lego punch art!  I'm hoping to add a few more characters to my line up and create a bigger project for my son - I have the idea of laminating them and creating a play mat of sorts.  Hopefully I can get the idea out of my head and onto the paper!  Stay tuned!

Until next time...

Wow...the moment I saw this, I thought, 'Awesome!'. What a great job you did making this look so authentic & bright. This is just so cute!!! I love it! (Love the movie, and Frozen, too...between those songs & 1D songs, my tween girls keep us all singing!)
