Happy Birthday to You - MFT March Outside the Box Challenge


Everyone has a birthday, and there’s no better way to show the lucky birthday boy or girl that they’re on your mind than with a handmade card. Big days deserve big designs — box cards provide ample space to make your birthday scene dreams come true! This month, party with the design team as they share their birthday box card designs.

MFT Outside the Box products make it SO easy to create box cards--I just love them! For this card I'm using Balloon Besties Stamp Set and Die-namics for up, up in the air birthday fun! To begin, I created my box base using Outside the Box, Outside the Box Level Up, and Outside the Box Clouds, all cut from Sweet Tooth card stock. 

Party Plaids Patterned Paper was used as accents and to set the color theme and the cloud background was done with Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Broken China Distress Ink, then all the box components were assembled with Scor-Tape.

Images were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers and were attached to the clouds with strips of clear acetate card stock. To finish off, the sentiment was heat embossed on Tropical Teal card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics.

And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by!
