MFT Stamps | July Outside the Box – Birthday Bonanza

July 16, 2021

Hello friends! Welcome to the newest Outside the Box Challenge! It’s MFT’s birthday month, so this challenge is all about creating birthday box cards! If you’ve never tried making a box card, the entire MFT Outside the Box line makes it SUPER easy!

I created a fun birthday box card featuring the adorable pigs from the BB Hog Heaven Stamp Set. I first created my card base by die cutting some white card stock using both the Outside the Box and Outside the Box Level-Up Die-namics. I next layered these pieces with some teal patterned paper from the Poppin’ Polka Dots Paper Pad. Prior to adhering it, I stamped my sentiment onto my front piece of patterned paper using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Next, I diecut some grassy hills from Sour Apple Prestige Card Stock using the Outside the Box Grassy Hills Die-namics. I blended each hill lightly with both Sour Apple and Field Green Premium Dye Inks and then lightly splattered them with diluted opaque white acrylic paint for added interest.

I colored all of my images with Copic alcohol markers. I added a balloon from the BB Birthday Bears Stamp set and a banner from the new Bunch of Happiness Stamp Set.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Pigs: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13
  • Reds: R05, R35, R39
  • Pinks: RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66
  • Yellows: Y13, Y15, V12
  • Teals: G000, BG11, BG13, BG18
  • Greens: YG01, YG06, YG17, YG67
