Countdown Day 4: Happy Birthday – MFT Stamps

Project Overview

It’s Countdown day 4 and I’m sharing a card using several of today’s featured items. I am participating in the Cards for Cubs initiative which sends handmade cards to children in foster care. This year they are asking for birthday or encouragement cards, so this is perfect! I hope this makes the recipient smile and feel a little special on their birthday.

  1. Die cut a white panel of cardstock with the largest die from the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics set.
  2. Stamp the sentiment from All-Occasion Scripted Greetings at the bottom in MFT Extreme Black ink.
  3. Using the Happy Cake Day Die-namics, die cut the slice of cake from yellow and pink cardstock. Die cut the sprinkles and one letter from glitter cardstock.
  4. Lightly ink blend the pieces to give a little dimension and depth.
  5. Assemble the cake slice. I found that it was easiest to cut a scrap piece of cardstock and cover it with glue, then adhere to the back of the main cake die cut piece with the adhesive showing. That way you can piece in the layers and have a little wiggle room to ensure the cake fits together nicely.
  6. Stamp and copic color an image from Fairy-Tale Friendship. Die cut with the coordinating Die-namics.
  7. Glue the single letter that you previously die cut from glitter cardstock behind the princess to make a cake topper.
  8. Adhere the cake slice and the cake topper to the card front.
  9. Make the edgeless shaker. You can use a scrap piece of packaging or acetate or use a shaker pouch. Adhere the plastic around the card front with double sided adhesive to make a pouch.
  10. Add the sequins and confetti of your choice and then close the shaker.
  11. Adhere the finished shaker to an A2 card base.
