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
- 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)
- 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
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!
Step 3: Lettering
You are going to put the lettering on next because if you wait to do this last, you will already have your 3D circles on. Put your letters together and stick them where you want them. I kind of liked it in the bottom right corner, like a signature. The first time I just did black letters on a white background (these are pictured in Photo 2), but this time I thought about putting the black letters in white circles so they kind of go with the 3D circle look. I provided both in the Silhouette Studio file.
Step 4: 3D Dots
Now it is time to stick on the dots. I have a roll of sticky foam so I have to cut off strips and then cut those strips into little pieces. Regardless of what form you have it in, you want them to fit on the dots without showing. Now just stick on all your dots!
You're done! Isn't that card awesome!
