Friendly Robot Corner Pop Up card

I enjoyed making the dinosaur pop up card so much that I decided to make another one - this time for my little Great Niece.

The robots seem to be heading out of the card to join the party

Perhaps robots may seem like an odd choice for a little girl but I'm hoping she has inherited her mother's love of robots as well as cats - mainly because I didn't have any suitable cat images!

I've tried to make the card a bit interactive: she and her mother can do a lot of counting (robots, hearts, hearts attached to robots), they can look for colours (red, green and yellow and each robot has different coloured eyes) and they can make up a story about where the robots are going.

They're very friendly robots who are thinking loving thoughts - maybe not so robotic?!

The card is made from Melon Mambo cardstock and I used the same method that I learned from Dawn Griffith's video tutorial.   I decorated it with Go Wild and It's My Party Designer Series Paper (a gift from my wonderful upline, Kylie Bertucci, when I advanced to Silver - thank you again, Kylie!)

The robots are well hidden until the card is quite open

I stamped the robots from the Boys Will Be Boys set in Basic Black ink onto Smoky Slate card, then coloured them with Stampin' Write Markers and gave them a coat of Clear Wink of Stella.

I cut the numbers with the Large Numbers Framelits and punched the hearts with one of the Itty Bitty Accents punches.

The front of the card gives no clues about the surprise inside

Thank you for your visit.

  1. Such a cute card. I love the Boys Will be Boys stamp set and who says it has to be "just for boys". I know lots of kids who love legos and robots, no matter what their gender. Thanks for sharing your talents.
