Hello Beautiful - MFT April Outside the Box Challenge


This time of year, flowers are bursting out all over in a riot of color and fragrance. Bringing that joyous sensibility to your cards is an exciting way of integrating the season into your crafting, and a box card is the perfect vessel for showcasing the dimension of your fields of wildflowers or carefully arranged bouquets. This month, the design team is putting on their metaphorical gardening gloves to share their ideas for floral box cards — won’t you join us?

Nothing fits this challenge better than the recently released Box Card Bouquet Die-namics so this was a perfect opportunity to use these gorgeous flowers! 

To begin, I created my box using Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics, Sweet Tooth card stock, and Stripe Splash patterned paper. The back ground was created using Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Lazy Day dye ink, The shelves were cut from Sour Apple card stock. 

Next I cut my flowers and foliage from Limelight, Sour Apple, Jalapeño Popper, Lemon Drop, Butterscotch, Candied Yam, Moroccan Spice, Poppin' Pink, Amarena Cherry, and Grape Jelly card stocks and adhered them to the shelves.

To complete the design, I cut Box Card Greetings from Gold Shine card stock and adhered it to the front. And there you have it! Now it’s YOUR turn to play! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!
