It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for a new two-week challenge at Seize the Birthday. And this time, the sky is the limit, as there is no “Topping” option. We also have a Design Team member who is celebrating a birthday – Happy Birthday Jodene!
This seems to be my week for trying new techniques. I have seen many, many Cards in a Box all over the internet and have wanted to try one for a long time. So with my mother celebrating a special birthday this week, I thought now would be the perfect opportunity.
I found a very helpful YouTube video by Mommy Stamper, on how to create the template, and then the fun of decorating began!
I used Sweet Sorbet DSP on the flaps and bottom panels and then filled the box with blooms from the Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamp sets. The possibilities really are endless with this fun shaped card, and I will definitely try it again!
As always, our challenge is open for two weeks, until May 6th, so there’s lots of time to link up your creations – you can check out our challenge rules here.
My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, to inspire you with, so be sure to stop by Seize the Birthday and check them out – Nancy, Glenda, Colleen, Susie, Sharyn, Jodene, JoAnn, Marzena, Janet and Shirley. We can’t wait to see what you create!!!
Sure hope you will join the party!
