Robot Card

I was excited to make this robot card because I've had these adorable little Tim Holz gears sitting in my embellishment box for a couple of years now! I'm sure I bought them when they were on sale and had lots of ideas for using them, but this is the first time any of them made it onto an actual card!
I started with a DCWV black A2 card as my base. I looked through my Silhouette design files and found a cute background of some scattered screws. I copied it a few times, rotated some of the copies, grouped them all together and adjusted the sizing for an A2 card. Then I printed it and cut it out with my Cuttlebug using a rectangle die from the "Sunshine Layers" set from W Plus 9 Designs.
Next up I chose some print and cut robots and sized them before I printed them and cut them with my Silhouette Portrait. The next file I chose was the "I'm Nuts and Bolts about You" file in my Silhouette library. I chose a gear SVG file to make a frame around it. After printing and cutting it out, I was ready to assemble the card.
I adhered the background rectangle with glue tape and then popped up the robots with foam squares. I added a few of the Tim Holz gears using glue dots.
For the inside of the card, I adhered an action wobble to the back of the sentiment so the recipient can flick the gear shape and see it wobble. Of course then I added a few more Tim Holz gears!
Here's a couple pictures of the action wobble in action:

Here's the inside of the card when it's not in motion:

    1. Karen, thank you so much for your kind words, and for following my blog. I went to your blog and tried to join, but where I would usually sign up was saying something about the webpage not being available. I went to your "About Me" page and clicked follow there, so I'm not sure if you're just in my Google circles now or will show up on my blog reading list, but either way, I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations.
      Blessings, Carrie

  34. Great article. visa transit Turkey is the most convenient and quickest way to receive a travel authorization to visit Turkey for tourism or business purposes, also called the e-visa or online tourist visa with a single or multiple entry and valid for 180 days from the date of issue.

  35. I am very thankful for your efforts. Thanks for your valuable articles. check the Indian visa photo requirements. It is available on this website. And follow all the guides at time to apply for a visa form.

  36. Good afternoon, I'm happy to read such a great article. I hope you will post more in the future. With the introduction of an online process by the Indian government, obtaining an India tourist visa US citizens is easier and more convenient.
