Happy Birthday–December Birthday Project Challenge, Time to Shine


Hello and welcome to MFT’s December Birthday Project Challenge, Time to Shine!

Celebrate your glamorous friends this holiday season with birthday cards that reflect their love of sparkle & shine by amping up your look with glitter, sequins, and metallic accents. 

Be sure to stop by the
MFT Challenge Blog for all the details and more samples from the Design Team.


Glitter, metallics, sequins?? Yes, please! I made a shaker element to contain sequins and some other shiny objects. The shaker window was created with Sweet Tooth card stock, LJD Jumbo Peek-a-Boo Windows Die-namics, acetate, and foam tape along with the background which was stamped with gold Delicata ink and Happy Birthday Background. Once the shaker element was completed I popped it all up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.


The sentiment, from Hello, Beautiful, was heat embossed in gold on Translucent Vellum and adhered across the shaker element. Then Mini Rolled Roses were cut from Tropical Teal, Blu Raspberry, and Sno Cone card stock and adhered on top of Fab Foliage Die-namics cut from Gold Shine and Gold Sparkle card stocks—sparkle and shine to the max!

And that’s it from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
