May We Present - MFT Birthday Project Challenge

Hello crafty friends!  This month's Birthday Project Challenge from MFT Stamps is all about creating a birthday card that features one or more presents.  I don't know about you, but I find myself creating birthday cards more often than any other type of card.  I love how this challenge focuses on a different style of birthday card every month.

I created a fun square-shaped card featuring the sweet little girl from the Pure Innocence Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set.  I used some beautiful plaid patterned paper from the Petite Plaid Paper Pack as my background.

I also diecut a piece of white card stock using the Stitched Mini Scallop Square STAX Die-namics and then blended it lightly with Grapesicle, Cement Gray, and Gravel Gray Premium Dye Ink.  Once dry, I then stamped my sentiment at the bottom of this panel using my Misti Stamping Tool and Black Ink.

Lastly, I stamped and colored (with Copic Sketch Markers) my image on a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock and used the coordinating die to cut it out.  I then added this image to my card using 3D Foam Adhesive.

 Thank you so much for dropping by!  I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Make sure to stop by the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog to see what the rest of the team has created!
