I'm just a Love Machine

I've decided that I've been totally spoilt by Create-A-Critter. It was so easy to assemble all the layers in CAC that I forgot that most cartridges do not layer so easily at all. In fact, it seemed more like a fluke that layering was so easy with that cartridge and as I found that normally layering character cutouts was a little more complicated.

As I flipped through the Robotz handbook, it brought back terrible memories of the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge.  Check out the layers for the robots ' eyes. Look familiar?

Then again, it is because of that Hello Kitty cartridge that I knew right away not to waste my time and paper trying to cut this robot at a size that make it impossible to layer those minute parts.

To make this card, I cut out the robot at 5 1/2". The face, body, and wheels were cut and embossed with Cuttlebug's hearts folder. The heart cutouts are from the Love Struck cartridge. I used Lettering Delights' LDJ Space Monkey font for the sentiment. I added in some eyelets in square and heart shapes to make this card a little funky. The overall size of the card measures 7 1/4" x 7 1/4 ".

Despite the crazy small layers, I have to say that I do like this cartridge a lot. Once I figured out how the layers should come together, it wasn't so scary to cut and assemble the character. I just have to remember to cut it at a size that is 5" or more.  I'm not really fond of layering bit parts with tweezers.


  1. Oh My Gosh! This is the cutest card Ive ever seen! I just love it! Id make a ton of these and make them a set for someone, who'd get tired of this little robot?!
    Great job!

  2. Awesome! Love it, like always! :)

  3. Thank you, Gina and joeygirl86. :-)

  4. I love this card so much. I think you should make a 2" version. Get those tweezers out!! hehe!
