Let’s Celebrate–MFT April Birthday Project Challenge


Hi, everyone, I’m back with this month’s Birthday Project Challenge! Are you ready? This month we’re challenged to make a shaker card. All of the details about the 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 decided to make a balloon shaker element that you can see through to the sentiment inside the card. To do this, I made two Balloon STAX Die-namics “windows” that are mirror images of each other, one in the card base and one in another piece of card stock, separated the two with foam tape, and added shaker fillers to the resulting cavity.


I stamped two sentiments, one on the outside and one on the inside, from Handwritten Happiness and added a sweet little chick from BB Birthday Chicks. To finish off I added some Gold Sparkle card stock stars.

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 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
