Robot Party Birthday Card

I just received the Cricut event cartridge Robot Party and knew it would be perfect for this week's Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge:
Weekly Challenge #41: Interactive Elements Challenge! The Challenge: For this next challenge, we want to see you add an interactive element to your project.

Materials Used:
  •  Robot Party event cartridge: Pg. 17 , , <CrdBase> all @ 5.0"; Pg. 18 <HappyBdy> @ 1.5"
  • Stampin' Up card stock Not Quite Navy & Baha Breeze
  • Core'dinations gray card stock
  • Stampin' Up wire
  • Silver eyelet and brad from my stash
  • Adirondack metallic silver acrylic paint dabber
  • Pop dots
This was a fairly easy project.  I simply selected my card stock colors (3) and cut the card at 5.0" relative size.  I then dabbed all the gears with the metallic silver paint dabber. Next I added the eyelet to the right side gear.  I connected it to the card with a brad so that the gear can spin in a circle.  I then adhered the card base to the card and inked the edges with the metallic silver paint dabber.  Lastly, pop dotted the last two gears on to the card front and finished it silver wire haphazardly placed.

For the inside, I cut, dabbed and added the Happy Birthday phrase found on Pg.18 of the handbook.  I also used "zipper" scissors on the edge of the card for added interest.

Stay tuned for a couple of more projects I am working on with this cart in the next few days.  Until then, scrap and then scrap some more.  =)
