Robotz Card


I started by picking a picture that I could weld together easily. I used the shadow so that I could then layer the front of the card. I had to copy flip and rotate the image to make it a mirror of the first image. So that when I folded it would line up. I added a small rectangle that I then welded to each image so that I could make it a card. The Robotz has card options but not like the one I made...

This is the image once it was cut, and since I took the picture after I finished the front, this is actually the inside. I am using these as my sons Birthday invite so this is where all that good information will be!
I then cut all the layers that went with the original Robot in the different colors I chose. Usually when you use the Gypsy you can use small pieces of paper and place them on the mat at the same time and then cut all at one. Since, I am doing them in mass I used the Expression Auto Fill feature.

I couldn't just let the paper just be sad and boring so I used my Pink Cuttlebug and Cats Eye Chaulk to give it a different look.

This is what it turned out to be in the end. Oh and the black wheels have pearl ex mister on them to make them shine.
There Crystal I added a new project!
