Secret message card

This card is for the Spoonful of Sugar - Secret Message challenge. One of the reasons that I am a challenge junkie is they get me way out of my comfort zone sometimes and this card is no exception. Normally I would shy away from making anything like this but I stumbled across this card on Splitcoast Stampers I thought I would give it a whirl. I'm thinking this may be our Amy's Christmas card but then all the girly Xmas cards I've made so far have been going to be for Amy - at this rate she will still be opening this years cards when she is 7 lol!!!

Apologies for all the photo's, but I'm not very good at explaining things lol

The secret is kept concealed by the snowflake in the bottom left hand corner






The Secret opening is the mini card adhered to the inside of the main card



The stamp is a Sugar Nellie from Funky Kits, coloured with Distress Inks and Twinklers
The sentiment stamp is Elzybells
Papers are last years Dovecraft leftovers lol
Snowflakes are punched with Woodware and X-Cut punches then run through the Xyron and Glamour Dusted.
Card is all Stampin Up - their colours are just heavenly


Thanks for looking,
