MFT's December Outside the Box Challenge is All about Winter!


Ice skating, sledding, snowy winter nights, cozy evenings spent by the fire — there are so many scenes that would benefit from the dimensional perspective box cards provide! For our latest Outside the Box challenge, our team is sharing winter-themed scenes that will make those cold days a little more bearable.

I've always loved BB Polar Bear Pals Stamp Set and thought they would work great for this challenge. The images, along with trees from BB Present Time Stamp Set were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers.

Next I cur Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and assembled the box. The background was created by sponging Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock with Broken China Distress Ink, spattered with Mermaid Lagoon distress ink and black acrylic ink, then cut out with the appropriate Die-namics.

Outside the Box Snow Drifts were cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and after being adhered in place with Scor-tape, the images were added.

The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and popped up on the front of the box with foam tape.

And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
