When your birthday card provides some entertainment in addition to conveying birthday wishes, well, that's just a bonus! With a wide array of options for including an interactive component in your designs, why wouldn't you add a bonus element for the birthday boy or girl to enjoy? Need some ideas? Our team is here to help!
To begin, I did my back ground so it could dry while I was coloring. I sponged Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, Wilted Violet, Black Soot Distress Inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper then splattered clean water and white craft ink for the spooky sky. Once it was dry I created the shaker element using Circle Shaker Window & Frame and Happy Birthday Circle Frame Die-namics, a Circle Shaker Pouch, 1/8” Scor-Tape, and sequins and seed beads to match. Once it was done, it was adhered to a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.
I still had BB Witch Way is the Candy? Stamp Set and Die-namics on my desk so I thought, “Why not?”. 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 popped up on the card front with foam tape. The sentiment, from Sassy Pants Spooktacular Stamp Set was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and also adhered with foam tape.
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!
