Brand New MFT Challenge—Birthday Project Challenge!


Hi, everyone, welcome to a brand new challenge at MFT! Today we have the very first Birthday Project Challenge! Let’s celebrate the advent of our brand-new challenge by focusing on the word “celebrate.” Incorporate the stamped or die-cut word into your birthday card design and leave no question as to the mood of your greeting! All of the details about the Birthday Project Challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I absolutely love this die! Love the font, love the size, love everything about it! It’s perfect for ushering in this new challenge! I started by dry embossing Star Celebration Stencil on Sweet Tooth card stock, then popped it up on the Sweet Tooth card base with foam tape. Next I added some Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper—addicted to it—and the partial sentiment from Big Birthday Wishes Stamp Set, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock.


Next I use Copic markers to create my rainbow swatch and cut Celebrate Die-namics from it along with Sweet Tooth card stock twice. I adhered them together for strength and then to the card front. I finished off with a bunch of Silver Sparkle card stock stars cut from Blueprints 13 and Tag Builder Blueprints 5.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
