Default Ideas for 7 year old boy birthday invite?

I could really use some help, my son is turning 7 and I feel creatively challenged. I was fine throwing things together for my 3 year old daughter's invites but when it comes to boy ideas I'm stumped.

As far as "boy" stamps I have on-hand I have SU's Toybox, Unfrogettable, Bug Builders, Wild About You, Cowboy kid, bugs & kisses, cute as a bug and fishy friends. I'm concerned that all might be too young. He's into super heroes and transformers but it's going to be a simple backyard birthday party with 2 hours of boys running around with a few games and food thrown in.

Any ideas of things I could do with these stamps that would look "mature enough" for a 7 year old?

Thanks.

hummm, my 7 year old was really into Pokemon at his birthday (Mario the year before). My stamps obviously wouldn't do, so I went online and printed little pictures onto white cardstock. I die cut them out and used some on the invites and some as cake toppers. Good luck!

Does he like legos? My 7 year old son loves them and I thought this might be good for a party for him:

I quickly looked to see if I could find you any super hero type ideas and I did find some punch art, but these might be a bit more involved than you are looking for- but they are cute!

I don't have any super hero or transformer ideas, but here's what I have.

My son is 6 and I used this for his 5th birthday invites, just stamped "You're Invited" on the front. It was super fast and easy to make.

I was going to make something like one of these for his 6th birthday, but he changed his mind to a pirate party and I ended up using my high hopes pirates instead. These wouldn't require any stamps - just switch the sentiments to You're Invited.

The Robotz Cricut cartridge would be as close to transformers as I could think of. It has a lot of cute images on it.

Thanks for the input. The LEGO cards just might work. I've already purchased favors on sale - superhero books, lego packets and kung-zhu pets (I have an 18 month old boy too so everything will eventually get used). I haven't figured out which favor to go with yet but it'll be the legos if I can get LEGO invites made. Now how do I carry the lego theme in a hopefully outdoor b-day party at the end of June? I think I'll have to figure out how to make a lego brick pinata.

Any other ideas? Thanks for all your ideas, help and links.

Misse336 - I actually saw that a couple of days ago and favorited it. It's a great idea and my son's not into BB but I was thinking about using it as a soccer or baseball card. I was trying to figure out what CB embossing folder I could use for those if any. I think he'd be into a baseball party - it just didn't quite go with my favors. Thanks!

LaLatty - that Spiderman card would be perfect - just too time consuming. I might make it for my son and nephew though. Great idea thanks for helping.

Jenny, I just looked online again to see if I could find something else that would be easier for you and I can across these.....aren't they adorable?

I bet the spiderman one would be cute! If you decided to make either of these and you don't have everything to make them let me know and I'll help you if I can.
