Have a Monstrous Birthday – MFTCC54


I know someone with an almost Halloween birthday and I usually go with the Hallowen theme for a card. The current MFT Color Challenge seemed like a perfect excuse to make a birthday card with a little Copic coloring on this cute monster.

There’s no better way to spend World Cardmaking Day than crafting with friends and I was fortunate to be able to spend Saturday doing just that. First up, a card using the colors from the current Color Throwdown. I didn’t really realize that this card had no stamping on it until I sat back and looked at it. I did stack a few layers of the die-cut sentiment to make it stand out a bit more.


Stamps: None
Paper: Smooth White, Cotton Candy, Ripe Raspberry, Green Room, Lush Lagoon, Black Licorice (MFT)
Ink: None
Dies: Split Chevron Cover-Up, Thanks & Hello (MFT)
