DARING CARDMAKERS - HIDE AND SEEK




And my final card for today is for Daring Cardmakers - "Hide and Seek" - Make a card with a hidden message or element on your card. I have made an Open Swing Top card, which I found while looking through You Tube, and this card was made by a lady called Dawn. I have used one of Sugar Nellies Gorjuss Girls called "A Little Birdie Told Me", and she has been coloured with a combination of my Art-Kure WC brushes, and Sukura Gel pens. She has been cut and layered on pink and maroon card. The bottom half of the card is stuck to the card base, leaving a little bit at the top where the scallop is -unglued, for the top half of the card to slide into. The top half of the card pivots on the square gem brad on the left hand side in the middle of the card. The backing paper used is from a Basic Grey paper pad called Sugared. I have jazzed the card up a little with some paper flowers, with gem brads, a few pink gems, and some ribbon, as well as the stamped sentiment inside. Thanks for taking the time to stop by, and hope you have a lovely day!

Hi Louise - love the way all your colours come together so well and your beautifully coloured image.

The swing top is a great idea. I haven't seen that before.

Will catch you again.

This is a fab idea, and love your cards by the way, they are all really pretty, like the fact that you put the sketch with them too, very inspirational.
