For the man in Your Life challenge

We are sponsored this month by Dilly Beans Stamps
and I have used image439 - Wired Robot Framed

I love his little embossed face and his big bug eyes! 
This little guy was printed 3 times, once on regular card stock and twice over Aluminium Tape which was adhered over copy paper. ( Heat embossing it each time. ) Cut the antenna out from one image and adhered it over the card stock image. Then cut the eyes out from the other image and pop dotted them over the the card stock image.

I have to admit that I wouldn't have added the heart on my own, but sometimes God likes to craft along beside me and he had me smudge the corner, and he also guided me to find something to cover it. Now that it's done I think the red heart was a perfect addition and cannot imagine it not being there.

This is a wonderful card, will need you to tell me how to print on aluminium tape, I think God was right about the heart. Hugs Bee

Hi Sandee,
I have really studied your card, it is just adorable. First thought was "How did she do that metal look?" I have found that the Lord is always right, we just need to listen. I'm glad you did, the heart is perfect!

Alison Scott said...

What a fab card. That little heart just sets it off perfectly.

Katie said...

Oh so cute! So so cute! I just love robots so much (yes, I'm a science geek!)

Claudia N. said...

Oh, I just LOVE your robot, sandee!

Your aluminium foil gives him the perfect complexion! And his 3D eyes and the tiny balls with the antennas are just perfect! And I never would have guessed that God had been crafting alongside you - even though your card definitely looks heavenly gorgeous!!! ;)

Fantastic card Sandee, the robot is adorable and the texture from your technique looks amazing. (I don't think I could put tape on copy paper through my printer. Need to look at the specs in a different way next time I upgrade LOL! Cathy x ( Thanks for your visit too :)

How cute & I loved the story of how the red heart got added. Very inspiring, and I'll think of my unexpected or unintended - that way henceforth. Lovely way to say this. Liked all your embossing and will have to check out that aluminum tape in HD. I was excited when I found the gold Duct tape. Only used it once to date, then had to trim off most of it (on my cardinal recycle card) to get the blooming thing to fit reasonably on a cardbase. Gotta use it again, cuz it was purty! TFS
