Crime fighting and cards

Yes I did only a couple of weeks ago say that I would never make another Lego card, but this morning I found myself with another Lego idea and well, you can’t stop the creativity train! I needed to make a card for someone who has a special love for a certain superhero. Recently this superhero featured in The Lego Movie and I thought I would use my Undefined Lego man stamp to create him.

Of course he needed to be accompanied by some Lego bricks. In between my last Lego card and now, I’ve had my Owl Builder punch returned and thus had more options for smaller circles to use for the bumps. As I wanted to create a cityscape at night, I decided that my Lego bricks should be black with those little round yellow light ‘blocks’ on the nubs. This meant two sizes of tiny yellow circles. Mid-size owl punch circles and a large holepunch to the rescue. Whilst I was making those, I truly decided NEVER to make another Lego card… and I’ll probably stick to it until the next brilliant idea.

I made my city buildings, stamped my Lego man and suitably decorated him complete with hand cut cape and mask. The last thing I needed was a sign. I created this superhero’s call signal from the Word Bubble framelits and cut out a second and hand cut it to the desired shape.

Have you worked out who the superhero is?
