Freestanding Building Blocks Card

I was asked to make a special card for a wee man turning to 3 so I thought and thought and came up with something almost as special as he is.

P1040641 This doesn’t quite fit into a standard envelope but that didn’t matter too much. The blocks fold up so the card can go flat. I added a background just pick up the colours a bit and add some interest.  P1040642

P1010799 (493x640) How cute is this! I have a little friend turning 5 soon and as soon as I saw the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch this card popped straight into my head.  Then I noticed the colours I had pulled out matched the Colour Throwdown for this week. My poor little 3/8″ circle punch from the Itty Bitty punch pack got a good work out cutting all the block “knobs” but I think its a pretty cool card.
