The Birthday Project Challenge - Feeling Sentimental

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!

While our birthday collection boasts a virtually endless array of festive imagery, challenging ourselves to think outside the box by using only sentiments in our design is sure to inspire creative, eye-catching looks. Grab your favorite birthday sentiment stamps and dies, text-based backgrounds, and alphabets and craft a birthday card that wows without using any images.

MFT products are encouraged, but not required - just make sure to create a text-based design on your birthday project to be eligible! You can enter your cards for this month's challenge in the Inlinkz Link Up at the bottom of this post.

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