Lots of Bots Flip-it Card

Hello Friends!

I do love cards with fancy folds!  I used to make this style of card by hand but I am finally getting a chance to use this fabulous die from my stash by Sizzix  called Square Flip-it's Card.  So much quicker and easier~LOVE IT!!  This made it a quick card and since I am in the middle of musical theater and short on time and sleep....it's just what I needed .......something quick!

I stamped the nuts and bolts with Memento London Fog on the cards base and the robot image with Memento Tuxedo Black.  I used my all time favorite Silver Mirror Paper to pop the image on and add a panel that has been dry embossed with the Diamond Plate Cuttlebug Folder. The flip side of the image square has a blank panel for the message.  Three little silver brads to finish it off.

I really had to blow the dust off this Stampin Up! Lots of Bots Stamp Set! I colored this little robot up with Copics......

Ground~W00, W1, W3, W6
Shadow~B0000, B000
Robot~ C1, C3, C5
Eyes~YR12, YR35
Gloves, Hat, Balloon &Bag~B91, B28,YR12, YR35, E50

I will be back creating and visiting you all when Musical Theater is wrapped up in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week!!!!
