Big Birthday Wishes - MFT Color Challenge #166


Hi all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here's this week's color combo: Grapesicle, Grape Jelly, Caribbean Sea, and Eiffel Tower. All of the details about the color challenge are available on the MFT Blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I decided that a shaker card would be a great way to display these colors so to begin, I adhered Poppin' Polka Dots Patterned Paper on Sweet Tooth card stock with spray adhesive to keep everything straight, trimmed it to size, and cut it with Big Birthday Wishes Die-namics.

To create the shaker element, I adhered some clear acetate card stock to the back with 1/8" Scor-Tape and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base on three sides--leaving the top open. Through this opening I poured my sequins and seed beads, then inserted foam tape to close up the top.

Next I stamped Balloon Besties Stamp Set on No Line Coloring card stock, cut it with the coordinating Die-namics, colored it with Copic markers, and popped it up on the front with foam tape for the finish!

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!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
