Robot Happy Birthday- Robotz Cartridge

I was soooo excited to receive the Robotz Cartridge this month and was even more excited when I saw that my package included the Cuttlebug Companion Embossing Folders that matched!! I made this cute little birthday card and hope you enjoy it.



Ingredients:
Cricut Robotz Cartridge
Cuttlebug Companion Embossing Folder - Robotz (I used the lighting design folder)
Blue inkpad
Glue Glider Pro
Xyron
5" x 6.5" card base
Pop Up Glue Dots

Cardstock:
Black
Silver
Blue
Yellow (1 piece measuring 5" x 6.5" and small scrap)
Lime Green
White


Recipe:

Using the 5" x 6.5" yellow cardstock, run it through the cuttlebug using the lightning design embossing folder. You will have to move the folder down the paper and line it up with the design you just embossed, running it through the Cuttlebug again to get the design on all of the paper.

(This is the first time through the cuttlebug)

(This is the 2nd time through the Cuttlebug to emboss the right side)

Ink the edges with the blue inkpad. Adhere to your card base using Glue Glider Pro.


Cut Robot1 (p. 28) at 4.5" on silver (arms, legs, etc.). Do not change size setting for rest of the robot cuts.
Cut Shift Robot1 on blue (face and center circle)
Cut Layer 1 on lime green (base of shoes, antenna and hand cover)
Cut Shift Layer 1 on yellow (hands and front of shoes)
Cut Layer 2 on white (eyes)
Cut Shift Layer 2 on black (shadow)

Adhere the layers of the robot. I prefer to use my Xyron to get a nice adhesive layer. Refer to the booklet to determine what pieces go where.

Adhere Pop-up Glue Dots to the back of the fully assembled robot and attach to the front of the yellow base.

Using Design Studio, I cut the letters Happy Birthday at approx .875" tall on blue. I used my Xyron again to apply adhesive to the back. Apply to yellow base.

I think this card is so cute I am going to make it again in pink for a little girl. This time with stickles and glitter!!
