MFT Creative Challenge! Box card & Video Tutorial

Hi everyone! In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, we're all making cards featuring Fun Folds! Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!


I created this box card after doing a bit of research on YouTube. I ran into a tutorial from Angela, who is "stampnang" on YouTube. Excellent tutorial! I changed it up a bit to create 2 box cards:



up close...

it opens up to a secret message inside...

isn't it the cutest idea?

 I created a video tutorial so you could create a box card yourself and see how easy and fun they are to make! Click HERE to watch.

Recipe for these box cards:

  • All Smiles stamp set
  • MFT Die-Namics: Dainty Doily Duo, Fancy Flourish, First Award Ribbon, Flower & Leaf Trio
  • Hot Fudge cardstock
  • Prima Reflections and My Minds Eye Fine & Dandy papers
  • I Am Roses flowers
  • Crystazzi crystals
Be sure to check Kim's blog to see what the other designers created for this month's challenge!

hugs! ❤
