I had a busy day yesterday, part of which was spent kicking off a new project that I will be sharing with you soon, but alas no time to blog. I'm back nice and early today though to share a card inspired by the sketch over at TGIF Challenges:
The moment I saw the sketch I saw a present! Can you see it too? I rotated the sketch anti-clockwise and this is what I came up with:
Fun, right? This is a card with a surprise though - read on to find out more!
Here's the low-down on today's card:
Be A Party Animal - My card today was inspired by the bright colours and patterns of the Party Animal Suite of products - bright and fun, just perfect for a birthday celebration.
A Hidden Message - I added an 'open me already!' tag to my parcel as there is more to my gift than meets the eye: I used the tag topper pieces of the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies to create a parcel-shaped tag that fits inside a gift sleeve and reveals a hidden birthday greeting - take a look:
Here's my greeting tag, stamped with a sentiment from the 'Big On Birthdays' stamp set, completely removed:
Adventures On The Inside - I also added a little birthday fun to the inside of my card too:
I love this kind of card - a truly universal birthday greeting that can't fail to raise a smile!
Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:
