Picture of 3D LEGO Card
LEGO is so cool!  I loved playing with them and thought it would be fun to make a LEGO themed card.  And to take it a step further, I gave it a little bit of a 3D effect!  Check it out! 

I made this using the Silhouette Cameo but you can make it using a paper cutter and hole punch too!

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
What you need!
  • Cardstock in colors of choice - I used red, yellow, green and blue
  • Greeting Card
  • Attached File
  • Silhouette Cameo or Paper Cutter and Hole Punch
  • Double sided tape
  • Glue stick
  • Sticky Foam (I used a roll, but it comes in pre-cut pieces too)
  • Scissors
So I have attached a zip file with my Silhouette Studio document.  You can do that or you can cut out your rectangles with a paper cutter and your circles with a hole punch.  Either way works fine.  It's nice, though, if you can use the Silhouette to cut out your lettering.

Piece Sizes*:
  • Circles (88 to cover whole card) - 1/4 inch diameter
  • Rectangles (40) - 1 inch by 1/2 inch
  • Squares (8) - 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch
*The original plan was to make these to the exact size of LEGO, but then I decided I wanted them to fit perfectly on the card instead.

Step 2: Building Blocks

Time to put your blocks together!  I just started from left to right and lined them up.  You can see the pattern I did if you want to do that.  My goal was to make it so no color is touching itself.  If you have the standard 5.5 x 4 inch card greeting card, your rectangles and squares should fit almost perfectly.

You can play around with this step.  Put colors together and make a design, make a pattern, make some blocks 3D while others are flat on the card!  Just go wild!
