I’m still slowly working through stamp sets in my to-use pile. Today I’ll be using MFT’s Birthday Chicks stamp set. It’s a cute Birdie Brown stamp set that features a bunch of chicks celebrating a birthday! I thought the images paired nicely with stamps from MFT’s Beary Special Birthday, Up in the Air, and Sweet Birthday Wishes. This is what I came up with:

There are 3 slats in this box to start and this box features decorative paper from DCWV Confetti Paper Pad.
I started out the card by stamping out the images with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and fussy cutting the images with my Cutterbee Scissors. I used the present trio image from the Beary Special Stamp set, the banners from Up in the Air, and the big present from Sweet Birthday Wishes. I used the following Copic Markers to colour them: R17, R14, R20, YR04, YR02, Y06, Y11, YG09, YG06, YG03, B02, B00, B95, B93, V15, and V12. I also made highlights with a white gel pen. I used Lawn Fawn’s Glitter Pen to fill in the banner, candles, and party hats.
I adhered the images directly to the slats or onto acetate strips and tabs and onto the slats.
I heat embossed the sentiment, “YAY! YAY! YAY! It’s Your Birthday!”, with Brutus Monroe Alabaster White Embossing Powder.

Hi everybody!! I'm currently working through the pile of stuff on my desk that I haven't used yet. Today I wanted to share this #boxcard using @mftstamps #birthdaychicks stamp set! It's hard to tell in the photos but I used #lawnfawn 's glitter pen on the banners, candles, and party hats so they were super shimmery. What I love about this glitter pen is that when it dries, THE GLITTER DOESN'T RUB OFF!!!
