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.

Those pips really give this LEGO card some definition, and the colour choice is classic!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  mikeasaurus2 years ago
That is what I was going for with the colour choice! Thanks for noticing :)
