Pop 'n Cuts/Cricut Robot Birthday Card

 As much as I would like to make girly cards all day, with 3 boys I have a good quantity of boys' cards to make, for them plus friends. I saw a robot card over on Amy's blog, and it inspired me to get my Cricut 'Boys will be Boys' cartridge out, and have a go at one too.
I also used the Pop 'n Cuts Base die, with Label Insert, Movers & Shapers Flower & Star set, Borders & Hydrangeas die for the zig-zag strips, Alterations Gadget Gears die, Black Copic to colour in above and below the zig-zag borders, and chevron paper printed from Mel Stampz. The embossed 'Happy Birthday' is from the Sizzix Textured Impressions Mustache Set.
I am putting this card into the Crafty Cardmakers' 'Masculine Birthday Featuring Technology or a Gadget' challenge, and Daring Cardmakers 'Make a Cute Angle' challenge.
While I have all the Cricut & Sizzix stuff out, it's very easy to just cut out repeats, and make multiple cards, so here is my next little fella ready to go...

(A little later...)


  1. Your card has really cheered me up! I love every detail about your little robot but his eyes are definitely the best bit!

  2. Ooh Helen that is such a fabulous card :) I love it! Thanks for sharing your shapes with Daring Cardmakers this week

  3. Oh Wow! Your card is so fantastic, and so much better than mine! I'll have to case your card now! LOL! Thanks for mentioning my blog too. That's so sweet!

  4. Love this card, really clean lines. Thanks for playing along with my masculine theme at craft cardmakers challenge this week.
