Valentine for My Boy


The Cricut Cardz Challenge this week is to make a Valentine's Day card for a man. I made one for my almost-man, my 15 year old son. When I saw this robot on the Robotz cartridge, I knew I had to use it. Doesn't he look like a gangly teenage boy? Something about those arms reminds me of my basketball playing Eric.


The robot is cut at 4", and he's holding a 1" (real size) heart from Create a Critter. The sentiments are from My Creative Time's "You Had Me At Chocolate" Stamp Set (click here for ordering information). Both the card and matching envelope are from Wild Card, cut at 7". I used my Gypsy to hide the cut-outs on them.

I free hand cut the layers on the outside and inside of the card, and I didn't bother cutting the liner for the envelope, since I was using double-sided paper.


Recipe:

K & Co. Patterned Paper
Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy & Aqua Mist Cardstock
Core'dinations Cardstock
My Creative Time "You Had Me At Chocolate" Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink True Black Ink & Rustic Cream Button Twine
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
Red Sharpie
