Hidden message card re-visited. As a fledgling demonstrator, I taught this to my Technique Club ladies many years ago and have resurrected it for my SWE Card club ladies this month. We did a fossil stone background on glossy cardstock and the effect lent itself to an aquatic theme. So I paired it with the fish from the Patterned Pets stamp set in the main catalogue, Page 44 available both in clear mount (124395 @ £11.95) and wood mount (124393 @ £14.95) and of course an old favourite - Pocket Silhouettes. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs also new for 2011-2012 which can be found on Page 88. We used Crystal Effects to make some bubbles and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over it while it was still wet to make the bubbles pop. Click on the picture to enlarge it for a closer look.
This is the card when opened. The message starts with "so many smiles..........."
To reveal the hidden message, you simply squash the sides together as illustrated above, grab the centre panels and pull apart again to reveal......
the hidden message..."begin with you". Don't you just love that cat silhouette at the top looking down at the fish longingly! I love that the stamp set also includes a paw print, which I've stamped across the panels too!
Then holding the outer panels, if you pull again, it goes back to the beginning. This card employed other techniques too, which was a bit of masking.
Hope you like it. Thanks for looking!
