Hi everyone, I decided to make a Hidden Message Card for this weeks Stamping and Blogging Sketch Challenge, and I used the slice of cake image from the Sketched Birthday Stamp set. Here is my card for SB84.
I stamped the image on a scrap piece of white card, coloured the image in using Stampin’ Write Markers using So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Blushing Bride, Smoky Slate and Pumpkin Pie. I then punched it out using the 2″ Circle Punch so I could adhere it thru the window of my card onto the back layer of card.
I stamped and coloured the balloons on the inside of my card close to the punched circle. I then stamped the saying on a scrap piece of white card and punched it out using the 2″ Circle Punch. This time I opened my card before adhering it thru the window so that it adhered to a different piece of card. I adhered it to a piece of card that slips in between the 2 layers when it opens. This is what it looks like fully opened, notice how it has now changed to a saying..
This is what it looks like when the card is semi opened.
Here is a side view of the card so that you can see how the front layer has been scored and folded so that it slips in between the inside and back layer of the card.
Size of card stock
Front piece of card is 21.2cm x 10.5cm scored at 14.5cm
Center piece of card is 22.5cm x 10.5cm scored at 11.2cm
Back piece of card is 14.5cm x 10.5cm
Fold the center piece of card in half and fully adhere top portion onto front piece of card, open center of card and then punch or die cut the circle thru both layers of card. Close center piece of card and draw circle outline thru the punched hole, punch circle from inside back of card, doing this will allow all the circles to line up. Adhere the back piece by placing a strip of adhesive hard on the right hand edge of card and attach to the inside back edge of card, this will allow the scored piece to slip in between the two layers. Hopefully it will make sense when you look at the photo above.
Here is a photo of this weeks sketch that I designed my card from.
