My Favorite Things - A Brand New Challenge: Outside the Box!

 Hello friends!

I'm so excited to be sharing a project that I've created for the brand spankin' new Outside the Box Challenge! This challenge has been added to the amazing family of MFT Challenges, and I can tell you it will be a fun one! This month the theme is "anything goes", but future Outside the Box Challenges will have a theme, so get ready for some fun inspiration for using the Outside the Box Die-Namics!

I wanted to use the Little Town of Bethlehem Die-Namics to create a beautiful holiday scene inside my box. So, I die cut three of the four dies from the Little Town of Bethlehem Die-Namics borders from Grout Gray card stock and layered them inside the box by adhering each piece to a shelf piece from the Outside the Box Die-Namics - that way, each piece had tabs to adhere to the inside of the box. I used the Starry Night - Horizontal Die-Namics to die cut the back layer piece from After Midnight card stock. I die cut the star from the Little Town of Bethlehem Die-Namics from Silver Sparkle card stock. The sentiment is from the Snow Globe Sentiments Stamp Set, and I stamped it onto After Midnight card stock using embossing ink, heat embossed it with silver embossing powder, and die cut it using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-Namics. I inked up the English Brick Wall Stencil on the smaller box layer pieces using Grout Gray Dye Ink, and adhered them to the outside of the box. I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other fabulous creations that my fellow teammates have designed for your inspiration! And while you're there, why not link up a design of your own using the Outside the Box Die-Namics for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique! It's a random draw, but you can't win if you don't play!

That'll do it for me today, my friends! I'll be back in a few days with more crafty stuff. Until then, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Love the layers that make-up this card. It gives it a professional look to the card as well as a great look to the Christmas story as well.
