Fun In The Rain Birthday Card

I got my Craft Robo last Friday, and have been playing with it all week, downloading templates, getting used to the settings, program and even the cutting itself. So I thought seeing as I have had several plays with it using scrap paper, it was time to make a card using it. And what better card to make with it than my entry in this week's Willow Sketchie Challenge. Hope you all like it. :D

Fun In The Rain Birthday Card



I used white card for my base card, which I then covered with a glittered multi-coloured patterned paper. Then using my Craft Robo I cut out a patterned 10 x 10cm square out of blue patterned paper, and a plain 10 x 10cm square out of purple paper. I then glued the blue square to the purple square.


I coloured in a free Sliekje Just Cute Digi Stamp in Photoshop, printed it on white card and trimmed it to a square. I then wrote "Happy Birthday" on a pre-cut orange tag and tied a pink ribbon through the hole in the tag. I attached the end of the tag to the back of my purple and blue square using double sided tape. Next I attached the purple and blue square to the top left corner of my card, and the digi to the bottom right corner. Lastly I punched 3 holes across the bottom left of my card and set 3 large black eyelets in them.

I enjoyed using my Craft Robo to make this card and I would like to thank Claire from Willow Sketchie Challenge for her fantastic sketch. Good luck to all that enter. :D

    1. Thanks Hazel :-* It was a free template from the Craft Robo Mega Store, I just resized it a little to fit... I just had to use something that was intricate, so I could put my Craft Robo (who I have nick named Cutty) to the test ;)

    1. Thanks Lisa :-* I have wanted a cutter for ages, so for Christmas and my Birthday (which was 2 weeks after Christmas) I asked everyone for money to put towards it... My good friend Donna (aka Cloudedbrains) suggested the Craft Robo to me and as I soon as I saw it I was in love... Lol... Plus when I finally got around to placing the actual order it was on sale and I got $140 off, so I didn't need to put any money to it as my family had given me more than enough ;)

    1. Thanks Pauline :-* Lol... You know me, always has to be bright... Lol ;) I love my Craft Robo, so glad I got it... Definitely makes it easier than hand cutting things out that's for sure... My next attempt is to make my own templates for it... Might start with a few easy basic ones first though until I get the hang of it ;)
