Go Big on Your Birthday - MFT July Birthday Project Challenge

Gift cards have become a staple when it comes to thoughtful presents — there are so many options available that you can always find the perfect choice for the special people on your gift list! It's easy enough to simply slip one inside a birthday card but you have the skills to elevate your gift card presentation into an art form! Today our team is using any of the variety of gift card options available in the MFT boutique to do just that.

Hello and welcome to the July edition of MFT’s Birthday Project Challenge! I can’t agree more!!! Gift cards rock! Especially in these trying days when we rarely see family and friends face to face—they are so easy to add to a card and drop into the mail. And they’re always the right size and color!! Can’t really go wrong with a gift card. If you don’t know the recipient's exact taste, a generic card is always welcome. For this card I used my favorite Slider Surprise Die-namics to conceal the gift card, and decorated it with images and a sentiment from the recently released SY Pawty Time Stamp Set and Die-namics.

The images were stamped on No Line Coloring Card Stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and adhered to the card front with foam tape. Before assembling the slider mechanism, I sponged the background with Broken China and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks and stamped the confetti.Once assembled and you pull the slider mechanism up, the gift card is revealed!!

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! We hope to see you playing along with the challenge on the MFT Blog. Prizes are to be had!
