My Mom is a fall baby and soon it will be her big day. When I saw the LCOM Sketch 93 by Ana Castro, I knew right off that this was going to become her Birthday card. Great sketch Ana!
While playing around with my papers, I came up with the idea of making a magnetic card. Mom is always displaying her cards on the kitchen table and after a while, they all end up in one big pile. I wanted to be able to remove the front of the card so that she could show them in a fashionable manner. This is a win win for all the people who do not want to save the whole card but just the time intensive handmade front. (Don't you like how I put that in bold)? I made the front layer magnetic, so that it can be displayed on any steel surface.
This is what my card looks like all pieced together.
I didn't want my card to look naked and needed a place to hide the steel, I got to work on creating a simple and matching base layer. The steel is hidden behind the leaves. This part of the card would even be the perfect place to write or stamp a hidden message.
This is the inside of my card
Here is what it looks like on my frig.
I am going to have some fun coming up with "what's next" in the world of magnetic designs.
I am planning on posting a more detailed tutorial later in the week.
It has been along time since I took on a challenge from The Craft Journal. I glittered up some white AC Cardstock with Martha Stewart's fire opal glitter. I then punched some butterflies out with my favorite Martha Stewart's punch.

My craft paper was given to me as a gift. I am not certain who the manufacturer is.
