Lego Head Card made with George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge

For Kaylee's main birthday present, I bought her a boombox that is shaped like a big lego block.  While I was getting it, I found the coolest lego stuffed animals and had to get one of them too.  Since I had a lego theme going, I wanted to make a lego card. I decided to go for a lego head because it seemed like a simple shape.

To make this card, I used the cylinder shape from George and Basic Shapes.  I made it the size of the main head and then I copied the shape and resized it to look like the little area on the top of the lego head.  I then copied that and added one to the bottom as well.  Once I had the basic shape down, I welded two of them together to make a shape card.  I then used a face from the emoticons on the Smiley Cards Gypsy Cart to finish him off. 
And I thought you all might want to see the cute lego man. :)  I tied him to the outside of the package instead of wrapping him up inside.
