Sizzle My Circuits!

Rain, sweet rain! We have lived in Atlanta for almost 2 months now and, with the exception of a few short rain showers, this is the first rainy day we've had. I wish it were tomorrow instead of my holiday, but hey, I'll take the water!

We have a bunch of birthday parties coming up, so I figured I would get a jump on making some cards so I'm not caught short the day of the party (also makes a gift card much more attractive!). I started with this adorable robot image from Torico's "Birdie Brown" shop and dug out my "Cogsmo" paper from Cosmo Cricket- what a great match!

I didn't want to cover the robot in the background of the paper, so I cut out my little guy and attached him with dimensionals. Because this is going to a boy, I had to keep the embellishments simple- a bit of cool stitching, silver brads and a die cut greeting - definitely NO ribbon!

The inside is finished with a coordinating strip from the paper pack, another die cut and a computer generated greeting.

Since I get questions about this, here are the Copic colors I used on this card...

I'm off to enjoy this rainy day in my craft room:))))))

Stamps: "Robot with Balloon"-Torico
Paper: Whisper White, Poppy Parade, Buckaroo Blue, Peach Parfait, "Cogsmo"-Cosmo Cricket
Accessories: Copic markers, Sizzix Big Shot, Nestabilities, Sewing machine, dimensionals


  1. Darling boy card. These are such fun to do.

    BTW, do you think you can squeeze the 'r' into circuits? Sorry to be critical but thought you might want to fix it before sending the card :)

  2. Glad you spotted that typo- gotta start wearing my reading glasses when I craft-lol!
