Robot Cards

Here are a couple of 'Robot' cards. The robots are made from a dingbat font. I purchased the font from font called 'DB RobotFriends'.

To make the robots, I embossed some metal from, with their embosser tool. While making this card I discovered a few tips for working with metal. When you are working with the metal, it will tend to get crinkled and dented. Don't throw that crinkled metal out - you can smooth it out. Place the crinkled metal on a hard surface, take your Cricut bonefolder hold it horizontal and pull it across the metal. The metal will smooth out, as good as new! You can use a regular bone folder, but I found that the Cricut bonefolder is a more flexible and worked better than the traditional bonefolder.

On my second card, I made a 'Robot Dog' (too bad they didn't have a cat). I cut the dog out and then then spray paint him brown. I then took steel wool and scuffed up the surface to have some of the silver show up.
