Happy Little Stampers - February Challenge

Today's card was created with the current challenge over at the Happy Little Stampers in mind.  The theme for February is Dies.

I love cards created primarily from die cut images but don't make nearly enough of them.  For today's card I chose a fence die that "I had to have but haven't used" as my focal point. 

I die cut two of the fence panels and then adhered them to the edge of a piece of blue cardstock along the scored lines provided by the die.  I added some grass along the bottom edge and some purple foliage along the top.  I didn't want the gate to be open so I wove a small piece of black cardstock through the fence to secure it, keeping the sentiment a secret until opened. 

To create my sentiment I white heat embossed the greeting onto a smaller piece of the same blue cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the card.  All the recipient has to do is slide the black cardstock out and voila....secret message. 

This card was a lot of fun to make.  I'm so happy to have the right challenge to push me to use those "gotta have" supplies that are gathering dust.  (Tell me I am not alone!)

  1. Yes. I'm sad to say I've had a few arrive that I haven't had time for, Julie. I'll get there!
    Your card is sweet - and the gate closure was a clever idea!
