How Many Fingers?

Hello everyone!  Here's a card I made for a nephew who's visiting from Alaska.  I intentionally didn't send him a card on his birthday because I knew he was coming for a visit.  I hope he likes this belated birthday card:

There are two things I like most about this card.  The first one are the hexagon shapes I cut with the Creative Memories punch.  It's one of my early tools, and rarely used too. 

The second one is the robot that pops out and wiggles when you open the card.  To achieve this, I cut a circle from a scrap piece of plastic packaging, and cut the circle in spiral, leaving just a little space in the center.  The center is attached to the robot, and the other end of the spiral is attached to the card.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Recollections, DCWV, leftovers
image/sentiment:  Inkadinkado, Stampin' Up
ink:  Stampin' Up, Tsukineko
tools:  Cricut Expressions, Robotz cartridge, Martha Stewart edge punch, Stampin' Up ticket corner punch
embellishments:  buttons, rhinestones
misc.:  plastic packaging
adhesive:  Scotch, Zots, mounting tape

'Til next blog!
