June 10, 2010: "MOM" Pop-Up Card

Pin It Now! This is a fun card I did for Mother's Day last year. I decorated the front with a metal pin threaded through a Sizzix diecut, a large label cut from my Slice and a punched fleur de lis. (Mom loves FDLs!)

I wanted the middle to be a real wow, so I cut 4" letters with my Slice and made an accordion of pop-ups to set the letters up and out. I was pleased with the end result.

Although I often think it, I really do need to dust off the Slice more often. I'm always impressed with the look that I can achieve and I really do have several cards. :) I am very much a Cuttlebugger and I love manual die cutting, but there is definitely a size versatility factor with the electronic cutters.

People often ask me about my Slice, and if I would recommend it. Due to the size limitation (only up to 4") I don't think I would recommend it as someone's only diecutter. However, as a compliment to my Cuttlebug it is perfect for me and I love it!
