Hello! I'm back again with the latest The Birthday Project challenge for MFT. The theme for this month is Peek a Boo Surprise.

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.

My card inspired by the challenge:

To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from the Friends with Fins and the Gill Friends stamp set. These two sets work perfectly together to help you create a fun ocean scene. After, I die-cut them with the coordinating dies.

I die-cut the outer panel with Neenah 110lb cardstock and the inner pull tab panel with Tropical Teal Prestige Card Stock using the Slider Surprise Dienamics. 

I ink blended the scored top panel with Orange Zest and Lemon Chiffon Premium Dye Inks. I stamped the seagulls from the Party Like a Pirate stamp set. The "Happy Birthday" from the Birdie Brown Greetings Galore was stamped with Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink. For the wave panels, I die-cut Blu Raspberry Premium Cardstock with the Ocean Waves Dienamics. I lightly added more colors on the waves with Blue Raspberry. I adhered the dolphins and the wave panels as shown.

Once again, I used the Blu Raspberry Card Stock for the A2 sized background panel. I stamped the panel with the solid fish stamps from the Friends with Fins and white heat embossed the sentiment from Friends with Fins stamp set. Then I adhered the rest of the colored images as shown. 

To finish, I foam mounted the top panel to the background to create this fun interactive pull card.

As always it's a fun challenge! I hope you'll play along with us. Visit the MFT Blog for information on The Birthday Project challenge and for more inspiration from the participating design team members.
