MFT Birthday Project...

I love MFT's Birthday Project Challenge.  I think after all these years, birthday cards are the ones that I don't make enough of.  So this challenge gives me a chance to create fun cards for my stash.  

Check out this week's challenge...

While some surprises are less-than-welcome, a birthday surprise is definitely an exception. If the birthday boy or girl isn’t the surprise party type, crafting a card that features a peek-a-boo element is a perfect compromise. With a variety of Die-namics options — from flip-up windows to interactive wheels, you’re sure to come up with the perfect peek-a-boo design for this month’s Birthday Project challenge.

I knew exactly what I wanted to make with the new Slider Surprise die....a rainbow front of course!

I chose a light aqua for the slider portion of my card and then adhered it to a white card base.  This Slider Surprise might just be the easiest interactive card to make.  Super quick too!  I added a white panel across the pop up portion to anchor the rainbow and then added it in with the clouds.

I popped up one tiny heart in the center.  The interactive label set is a must have for these types of cards.  I added the "pull" in the top center and then added in a sentiment from the Sweet Sentiments.

Its the perfect sentiment for a little birthday surprise!

It was so easy to slide the coffee card right under the slider portion.
