DCM-Hide and Seek!!!


The 'dare' over at Daring Cardmakers Hide and Seek has been set by Kathy and she would like us to make a card with something hidden on it be it in a pocket or whatever. I am in Waterfall card mode this week as I have been doing them in a class. Now the inside of these is partly hidden but to make sure that I did the dare right I have hidden my waterfall mechanism inside the card.
I have made a trifold card and used a fabulous new stamp set from Tandastamps which has everything you need for making those cards for romantic occasions.....not just Valentine's.
From the set I have used the script background to create a layer for the rose...also from the set. This has been layered onto some red card and edged with gold lines. The rose has been stamped twice onto green card and three times onto red then has been cut and layered, attached to the background and embellished with a small tag stamped with the sentiment from the set.
The letters for the inside of the card have been printed from the computer using the Codex font.
It's not my most favourite card I have ever made as I would have liked a richer red and a lighter green but couldn't find any in my stash so used what I had.


I have another stamp set to play with now.......Bee Mine which is also from Tandastamps and has been designed by Clare Mackaness who some of you may know from the Crafts by Carolyn forum.

I had best shift myself as hubby will be home shortly and he'll want feeding......flippn' nuisance.......lol!!!

Bye for now
