Christmas Tutorial by Design Team Member Daniele Haddon

As the big day draws nearer, we have another brilliant Christmas tutorial by another of our very talented Design Team, this time it's the turn of Daniele Haddon. So, it's over to Daniele for her step by step guide to making this fantastic hidden message card!

Over to you Daniele!


Here are the instructions for my hidden sentiment card

print out toppers and paper.

cut a piece of card 11.5 x 4ins and fold in half
score 3.75ins either side of the fold line.

fold and secure at the top sides about 3.75ins down, use a strong glue or tape

cut a mount (I've used gold)3.75 x 4.75ins.
Cut piece of patterned paper 3.5ins x4.5 ins and mount ontop 
of gold mount board .

Cut out a topper and then layer up using another image.
mount topper on gold and add stickles gold to the edge.

Add a 3.75ins strip of card to the back of the topper

mount a sentiment on gold
and add a tied ribbon to the bottom of the card.

slot the strip on the back of the topper through the top of the card opening.
This can now slide up and down to hide or reveal the sentiment.
