Nuts and Bolts

 Hello friends! Today's card is another creation from my friend Susanne for our Crafting at the Lake Event. She used the Nuts and Bolts stamp set.

I think this card was supposed to be a Valentine's card but I didn't need any more Valentines at the time so I didn't put a sentiment on mine. I will add a birthday sentiment and it can be for my grandchildren.

There is a lot going on with this card even though it looks fairly simple. The card base is Gray Granite cardstock and on top of that is a layer of Basic Black. On top of the Basic Black layer is a piece of Basic White with a strip of DSP from the Pattern Party DSP package along the left edge. 

On another piece of Basic White cardstock, we stamped two of the robots from the Nuts and Bolts stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. We coloured them using Stampin' Blends and then fussy cut them out. (Susanne is a big fan of fussy cutting!) The Stampin' Blends colours used are Smoky Slate, Gray Granite, Crumb Cake, Cinnamon Cider and Poppy Parade. We added the robots to the card front using dimensionals. 

We also stamped the hearts images randomly on the card front using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured them in using the Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends. Below the robots we added a strip of Basic Black cardstock so the robots aren't floating in mid air. To make the black cardstock more fun, we coloured it using a Wink of Stella. It is probably hard to see in the picture but trust me, it is there.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I think it is really cute and I know that my littles are going to love it.

Stay well and keep creating!
