Let's Celebrate ~ M&M Style!

There are those that love M&Ms and then there are those that LOVE M&Ms!!!  My sweet sister-in-law Lisa, not only LOVES them and also has a collection of them that is beyond amazing.  

(I'll tell you more about that in a bit. Let's get back to today.)

Today is Lisa's BIRTHDAY and what better way to CELEBRATE than with an M&M Birthday Eclipse card.

To make this card, I started with the background M&M paper and die cut the word 'party' about 1/2" from the bottom and 1/4" from the right side. It's very important to keep all the tiny pieces from inside each of the letters.   

Then using the 'party' die, I cut 6 more out of white card stock ~ gluing and stacking each of these on top as I cut. The top layer  (layer 7) should be the layer cut from the M&M paper.

I used a Free Goggle Image for the lady M&M and sized her to be about 4" tall.  After coloring her with my Copic markers I fussy cut her and added small foam dots around the edges of her back/legs and one larger one in the center of her back.

I used an A2 left fold card base and secured the background M&M paper down.  I carefully added the completed 'party' stack and carefully added all the tiny background elements.  Lastly I added the 'Let's Celebrate' sentiment, which has a couple of small foam squares on the back also and overlaps slightly onto the green M&M.

So... If you are ever near Burlington, North Carolina you must stop in The Glass Angel to see Lisa.  You will be doubly blessed - first by her amazing stained glass work and secondly by her out of this world M&M Collection!  

Be sure to tell her Pam sent you.
