It’s time for the November MFT Birthday Project Challenge, and this month we are shaking things up:
There’s no better occasion than a birthday to get as festive as possible by including shaker elements packed with glitter, sequins, or confetti. If shakers aren’t your style, including a cute critter careening across your card with a slider element is another exciting option. Shaker and interactive elements are a joy both to create AND receive so do yourself a favor and join us this month in crafting cards that move you.
This Polar Penguin was a perfect match for a December-themed birthday shaker card. I used Copic Markers to color the stamped images, and die-cut them with the coordinating Die-namics. I stamped the Simple Snowflakes background stamp with Red Hot ink onto white card stock, and used the Classic Snow Globe Die-namics to die-cut a shaker window, and make the shaker elements. I filled the coordinating Classic Snow Globe pouch with snowflake sequins and Rock Candy Glitter, then attached the panel to a card base.
Now, it’s your turn! Be sure to head over to the MFT blog for more design team ideas and inspiration, then enter your birthday card for a chance to win!
