My son just turned 7 this past weekend! How time flies. We had a great time celebrating his birthday with his friends and family at the Legoland Discovery Center.
When thinking about creating these cards, I wanted it to be interactive, fun and of course, Lego themed! So what better way than to do a penny slider card?
The supplies used:
Lego paper can be found on Pinterest. There are a lot of free Lego papers to download. Emmet is also a free image off the internet. (cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8")
Base: Red cardstock (cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4")
Layer: Black cardstock (4" x 5 1/4")
Stampin Up dimensionals
Momento black ink
Slider die or you can cut a rectangle large enough to fit the dimensionals or foam tape.
How to create: (I would print and cut everything first and then put them together using the instructions below)
Create card base
Adhere Lego paper to black cardstock
Add slider die onto the Lego/black cardstock and run through your die cut machine. You can also manually cut a rectangle as long as it's large enough to fit your dimensionals or foam tape.
Add dimensional onto the slider (whatever image you choose), then add a penny.
Line up the dimensional under the slider slit and then attach another dimensional to the penny and add another penny. A penny sandwich :-) Slider is finished.
Add foam tape/foam squares to the back of the layer with the slider and attach to front of the card base.
Decorate front and inside as you'd like.
I had extra Lego pieces that I fussy cut and attached inside the card.
There you have it! Pretty simple! I left a lot of space for my son to write inside the card. He tends to write big and he needs the space.
Try it out! I will do this again with some new products from Stampin Up! Excited to showcase and play around!
Now, let's get crafting!
