It's Kid's Week!

I have found myself making lots of kid-friendly cards lately for various events my son has been invited to.  So, I'm declaring this to be Kid's Week here at A La Cards :)
Today I have a birthday card I made for a Lego-themed birthday party Max went to last weekend.

Lego-themed birthday card featuring the Hip Hip Hooray Stamp set (retired)
To create the Lego blocks I cut 1" x 2" rectangles (larger blocks) and punched 1" squares (smaller blocks) from various colours of card stock.  I used Real Red, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush and Pacific Point.  The bumps on the blocks were punched with the middle-sized circle on the Owl Builder punch.  Every piece was sponged using ink of the same colour to give depth and dimension. I also popped each circle up with trimmed bits of Dimensionals to make them even more life-like.

The final touch on each block was to add the little highlight using the white gel pen...it's amazing what a difference that little touch makes!  The sentiment is from the recently retired Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit.  I inked the stamp using Real Red, Pacific Point, Crushed Curry and Cucumber Crush Stampin' Write markers and die-cut the stamped image using the Squares Collection Framelits.  The blocks are arranged on a piece of Basic Black card stock which is then mounted on a piece of thick Whisper White card stock.
