The Birthday Project - Birthday Surprise

Despite different backgrounds, beliefs, and traditions, one thing we share that unites us and is worth celebrating is the birthday of friends and family. Recognizing the special day of someone you love with a handcrafted card straight from the heart is always a good idea and if stocking your stash with unique birthday designs is on the agenda, have we got the perfect challenge for you! 

Our monthly Birthday Project challenge features ideas for getting creative with your birthday card making. Our team is excited to share their ideas, and we’re ALL excited to see how the challenges inspire you!

Slide, spin, and wobble your way to birthday card perfection with this month’s challenge. Add an interactive element to surprise your recipient with an unexpected twist on a traditional look. Check out what our team has done and then, get busy creating your own interactive masterpiece!

MFT products are encouraged, but not required - just make sure to add an interactive element on your birthday-themed card to be eligible! You can enter your cards for this week's challenge in the Inlinkz Link Up at the bottom of this post.

Inge created a card perfect for all the coffee and tea lovers out there and included an interactive slider message under her main panel. Her elements are layered perfectly and provide so much dimension and detail to her design.

Karolyn decided to go with a coffee theme as well and created a slider element that when pulled from the bottom, reveals a gift card up top. She added fun, playful colors to her coffee cup and completed her design with some die cut birthday balloons.

Congratulations, Claire A! You are the randomly selected winner of last month’s Birthday Project challenge.
