Happy Birthday to You–MFT September Birthday Project Challenge


Slide, spin, and wobble your way to birthday card perfection with this month’s challenge. Add an interactive element to surprise your recipient with an unexpected twist on a traditional look. Check out what our team has done and then, get busy creating your own interactive masterpiece!


I decided to make a Magic Slider Card for this challenge using PI Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set. First I stamped the image with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No-Line Coloring card stock and colored it with Copic markers. Next I stamped the image on Heat Resistant Acetate with StazOn Jet Black ink, using a stamp positioner to line up the two images perfectly.


I created a frame with Stitched Rectangle Frames cut from Sweet Celebration Paper Pack and adhered the StazOn stamped image directly to it’s back, then adhered the colored image to with foam tape, lining two images up perfectly. This created a pocket into which I could slide a plain Sweet Tooth card stock panel. This was adhered to the card base directly.


I cut the top of the Sweet Tooth panel with File Folder Edges Die-namics and stamped the sentiment from Interactive Labels Stamp Set. As you pull the panel out, the colored image seems to “emerge”, thus the magic :) To finish off I heat embossed the sentiment on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, popped up on foam.

And that’s it from me! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has at the
MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog and we hope you’ll play along!
