April COM - Ecru with Embossing

It's great when you finally use that paper you just LOVED and HAD to have. So, a couple of years later (?) I used papers from Close to My Heart Silhouette pattern paper and Basic Antique Combo plain cardstock.
The layout for this card is taken directly from Cindy at her "Royal Things" blog. You really need to look through her creations. They are great. This is a direct copy of #36 in her "previous creations" slide show.
This photo really doesn't do the colors justice. They are black and a rich ecru with a little layer of brown and shades of tan and white. It took almost a whole roll of ATG tape to get all the layers together and on the card. (Not for one card--I made 12.) The embossed flower and the thank you square are raised with Stampin Up dimensionals.

Another chance for a great giveaway

Joy at Obsessed with Scrapbooking is giving away some great prizes. She has reached over one million hits on her blog. I am personally hoping to win the Gypsy, but would be thrilled with any one of the gifts. Take a look by clicking on her blinkie--the one with the pink flamingo.

The new Robotz cartridge was on sale and I can't pass up a sale. I had some 5 x 7 cards that were given to me I wanted to use. I cut most of these robots at 5" although there are a couple of smaller ones that were my first experiments.
Design Studio is really a great tool with these so you can see exactly how big the robot is going to be before cutting. The 4-legged fat lady robot was too wide. When I turned her around on the card I had to cut off a couple of her toes to fit.

I had lots of fun doing these and used my scrap stash too.
This is an example of the final card. I used a cuttlebug folder and inked it to resemble metal industrial floors. Can't wait for the coordinating cuttlebug folders for the Robotz cartridge.
