A Robot Valentine...Nuts a bolt you!

Sunday evening is here again. Why do these weekends go so quickly? I hope all of you have had a great weekend!

There are still more Create A Critter Valentine's to share but today I want to share a robot valentine. I used the Wrap It Up cartridge.

The striped paper and the blue paper with the white polka dots...DCWV.
All other paper from the stash with an unknown origin. :)

The robot was cut using the card feature on page 40 of the Wrap It Up Handbook.

I cut the robot at 4.75 inches. I used my Gypsy to hide all the little cuts for the robot base.
The second robot was cut out as is in the picture.

This meant only two cuts vs. the four cuts if you used the main cut on the page.
I didn't want these robots to be that involved.

Lift up the flap with the riddle and you find the answer!

I inked around the edges of each of the robots.
Not quite sure why, but this made me smile.

"I'm nuts a bolt you!" Get it? I'm nuts about you?
I crack myself up at times.
What is even funnier is watching people read the card.
You can tell when they get it! :-)

Here is a look at the inside of some of the cards.
I could take credit for how neat the blue rectangles look...but it happened by ACCIDENT!
I opened up my Stampin' Up ink bad and the two pieces came apart and the ink pad part of it landed ink side down. I'm pretty sure a dirty word went through my head.  BUT THEN...
I picked it up and I was like maybe we can make this work. So I got out an orange pigment pad and stamped all over the place. I didn't hate it so I stamped the Happy Valentine's Day like I had originally planned.
I liked it enough to do it on a few other cards too. It is nice when an "oops" turns into "oh cool"

I couldn't get my ink pad to go back together so I searched for a video.
This video was quite helpful and my ink pad is now back together *THE RIGHT WAY*


What do you think of the robot using the Cricut Wrap It Cartridge? Have you played with this cartridge much? I have some new cartridges waiting for me to play with them. I am also thinking I want to provide a list of my cartridges to you, my awesome followers, and see which one you would like to explore next. What are your thoughts on that?

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope the robot has inspired you to tell someone you are nuts a bolt them!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  ~Jen
