A Robot Card

I made this card a few weeks ago for Matthew to give to his friend, Kyle, who was 5.  I've been really trying to make use of my Cricut which I got for Christmas so that's where the Robot came from.  I used the 'Robotz' cartridge.  I was really pleased with the way it turned out but it took a long time because there are lots of layers.

The base card is Bazzil Basics folded to make a 'Gatefold card' of about 6"x6".  There's a 'Happy Birhtday' peeloff and a couple of puffy stickers from ATD.  At the end of this post there's a picture of the inside for you to see.  I used a sentiment stamp from Pollycraft called 'Critters and Cogs'.  The Design Paper is from DCWV.

This is great fun and I love what you have done on the inside.
I know what you mean about the layers though- I got a few character sizlets but I have hardly used them as the bits are all so fiddly.
Hugs, Alison x
