Happy Birthday Mom!!!

…and Happy St. Patrick's Day! It sure is festive celebrating my Mom's birthday since it conveniently falls on March 17th. I usually make her a themed birthday card and this year it's extra special (and partly edible!) This is the very first card I made with my new Pop 'n Cuts dies ( Karen Burniston's Pop 'n Cuts die system ) and it was so much fun. It took a little figuring out and some practice cardstock, but I'm pleased with the results. Now, from several views, here it is:

This is a pretty bulky card so I used a Basic Grey magnetic disc set in between the layers of the card halves to help it stay closed. I also used another set of the magnets to stick the card to the top of the candy bucket:

I built up a little tower of chipboard circles so the magnet would be flush with the top of the bucket (I found the bucket at Michael's). One half of the magnet set is on the tower and the other is on the back of the card at the center.

In addition to remembering to wear green, don't forget that the March challenge at Inspiration Emporium is about creating a project that POPS. You don't have to use the Pop 'n Cuts dies, it can really be any technique that gives your project some dimension. Go see the details, join in and you have a chance to win $50 to spend in the store!
