A Girls take on Robotz

This was a blog post that I designed for TheBugBytes:

Wow, I can't believe it is finally here! My very first time as a guest designer, so I am very honored to be here on TheBugBytes!!!! My name is Lisa AKA Fairydust0218 from Cuttle Fairies Express, .

SO the challenge was using the Robotz cartridge! Lets just say we are not very good friends, lol! I have made a unique card using this cartridge, but I want to do something a little bit different. I am so use to hearing that this cartridge is a "boys" cartridge, so I wanted to show it can be for girls to!

I decided to do a spinning girl robot on this very simple and easy card.

First I choose which robot I wanted and laid out all the layers on my Gypsy.

I then picked out my colors that I wanted and matched up the colors to my Gypsy layout.

I then put my layers of robot pieces together and embellished with a little bit of stickles.
My card is normal A2 size and the robot was cut at 3 inches. To embellish the card I did a faux white stitch around the boarder of the card. I used button stamps with versa-mark (which I only used to to make a watermark not to emboss) to make a slight background. I didn't want to take away from the focal point being the robot. I used a stampin up slot punch to make the slot in the card. (There are tons of how-to's on YouTube on how to do this type of card so I wont go into much detail) I then stamped a small stamp with white white ink to put the final touch on the card.
When you move the card from side to side the robot spins! I hope you enjoyed my creation using the Robotz card, and that you come and visit me on my blog. I would also like to thank Pam for letting me have this opportunity to design for her blog. Thanks everyone!
