Happy Birthday to my Mother

Today is my Moms birthday. Mine was yesterday, When I was a little girl I wanted so badly to have been born one day later. We always celebrate our birthdays together.  As a child I loved it.

 Happy Birthday Mom, I love you!

I used a new Spellbinder's die and a fuse letterpress and die. The Spellbinders is called Marvelous Squares, this is a brand new die just released. I pre-ordered mine in June and just received  them this this past week, They are wonderful.

 I couldn't wait to get them,  so  I made a video awhile back using some Cricut cuts to mock  up a card I saw on YouTube, where a lady was using these dies. Here is my video http://ramblingsofatexascraftroom.blogspot.com/2012/06/interlocking-gatefold-card.html
Its called an interlocking gate fold card. In the video I give you a  link to the original card, using the same Spellbinderrs die set I made this card with.

On the inside I made a Pop up using a letterpress and die cut from my new Fuse. I cut and letter pressed some thin  felt. I stamped Happy Birthday after I had it embossed and cut. The fuse machine works great for this. I did back the felt with  card stock before i cut it out, to give it some strength.  I also used a MS butterfly punch.

I love how it turned out. I mailed it to my Mom  this week. She loved it too
