MFT November Outside the Box - Happy Holidays


We're deep into the season of holiday crafting...are you still on the hunt for innovative holiday designs that will delight those special people on your Christmas card list? For this month's challenge, our team is sharing festive designs that make Happy Holidays a 3D affair — impressive cards that may just be on display long after 2021 has announced its arrival!

Hello, all, I love MFT's Outside the Box line of Die-namics so much!!  They make box cards just too easy!! For this one, I used Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics from the November Release--so cute and great for giving you a little more of a dimensional look. Along with that I used the also recently-release Outside the Box Snow Drifts and previously released Polar Penguins Stamp Set and Die-namics.

I used Sweet Tooth card stock for the box card base along with some Berrylicious card stock. After I added the snow drift shelves, I created a little area to represent water beneath the surface.

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 added to the shelves.

The sentiment was heat embossed on Red Hot card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics and popped up on foam tape.

Now, it's your turn. You have until Thursday, December 17, at noon EST to add your link and be eligible for the prize of a $50 MFT shopping spree. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!

  1. The penguin stamp set was just ordinary before you colored them and added to life to the scene. Nice work.
