Hidden Messages

Challenge Three of the One Stop Craft Challenge Blogspot is
Hidden Messages

This was a tough one for me, and I probably sat at my craft table looking at images, turning paper upside down, thinking about frames and cut outs, and basically driving myself crazy for hours! In the end, I decided upon a tag that flips over to reveal a message.

The focal point of the card is this handsome Santa stamp (Inkadinkado), which has been stamped on glossy paper, embossed and colored with markers. A stamping friend (Beckie) sent me fluffy white yarn, which I used to embellish santa's hat and pom-pom. The Santa Claus postage stamp is also Inkadinkado. The funky Ho Ho Ho ribbon comes from BoBunny.

When the tag is flipped over, the message revealed says "merry wishes, 'tis the season, season's greetings, Merry Christmas" (Lots of Thoughts stamp set from Stampin' Up!).

It was quite a joy to have been randomly selected last week as the winner of Challenge Two from One Stop Craft Challenge!! I was excited all the way down to my tootsies!

This is so much fun for me to have a new goal each week. Thank you for popping by to have a look at my artwork.

This is another example of the same card, with the Stampin' Up! sentiment on the front and other messages on the back of the tag.
