MFT - Happy Birthday, Kim!

Hello friends!  I have a very special post to share with you today.  It's a surprise 50th Birthday Blog Bash for Kim van der Sanden, the mastermind and founder of My Favorite Things.  I actually had the privilege to meet Kim the other week and spend some time with her.  I really enjoyed getting to know her better. She's one of the sweetest, generous and most down-to-earth people!  So, all that to say, Happy Birthday, dear Kim!  I hope it's a very special one!

I created this fun Birthday Box Card to send to Kim.  I used the super cute, Birdie Brown 'Happy Hippos' Stamp Set combined with the banners from the BB 'Up in the Air' Set. 

I first stamped all of my images onto smooth white card stock with Copic friendly black ink.  I then colored them with Copic Sketch Markers and cut them out with their coordinating dies.

For the base/box portion of my card, I started with a 12"x12" piece of white scrapbook paper and cut it to 11.5" x 4.25".  I then scored this piece along the long side at 4", 5.5", 9.5" and 11".  Following this, I rotated it and scored all the way down the short side at 2 1/8".  Once I had the box ready, I simply used some card stock and patterned paper to cut the decorative panels.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today!  Make sure to head on over to the MFT Blog to wish Kim a very Happy Birthday and see what other birthday cards the MFT team has come up with!

As always, thanks so much for dropping by!  Have a lovely day!
