MFT Birthday Project Challenge–Throw Confetti Like It’s Your Birthday


Sure, it’s messy and you might be running across remnants long past the big day but you can’t deny the fact that confetti is FUN. Add it to a shaker, precisely place it on your card front, or tuck some into a pocket or envelope - there are so many ways to incorporate this birthday essential into your card making. Let’s see how you sprinkle it into your next birthday card design!

It IS messy but it sure IS fun! I created a shaker card to contain the confetti a bit but I was still finding it on my desk for days afterwards, LOL! I decided to do a full front shaker element using Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames Die-namics for my shaker frame. To add a little more fun, I stenciled Mini Cloud Edges on the background and filled it with Peacock Feathers Nuvo Pure Sheen Confetti and Golden Years Nuvo Pure Sheen Confetti, from which I drew my color palette.


I placed Celebrate Die-namics across the bottom, cut from Gold Sparkle card stock, Celebratory Banner Die-namics cut from Razzle Berry, Pure Plum, Lush Lagoon, and Green Room card stocks, attached to gold cord, and a two layer Flutter of Butterflies – Lace Die-namics for an accent. Love all the color movement when this bad boy gets shaken up!
