Hide and Seek

Kathy's dare this week...

Okay, for my dare we're heading to the playground for a game of
Hide & Seek
I'd like you to make a card which has a hidden component of some sort.
The hidden part could be a tag, a concealed photo, message or something along those lines, maybe a pull-out or pop-up.

Anything goes as long as there's something extra for the recipient to find on your card that's not immediately visible when they open the envelope.
The Design Team have made some fab cards to help get you thinking - but you'll have to visit their personal blogs to see the hidden extra!


Still not understanding the new camera - seem to be taking very grainy pictures at the mo so apologies for the piccie quality...

remove the ribbon banding et voila...


I used Pink Petticoat papers, Doodlebug chipboard, Paperchase and CI ribbon, Poundland gems, American Crafts rub ons and a MM brad.

If anyone knows how to make photo's less grainy - please let me know lol!

TFL :)

Hi Jo

Great card - what a fab idea for your hidden message!

as for your photos - I'm not the camera expert around here - but have you got the resolution set as high as you can for taking the original photos?

Great card - I couldn't work out where you'd hidden the message. The font you've used for the sentiment is perfectly whimsical.

Beautiful card Jo.
I love the way you’ve hidden the greeting under the ribbon.

Stunning card Jo, I love the band, too cool! As for grainyness, it could be a compression issue if you're resizing in photoshop and setting the quality too low. Is it on auto or macro it happens?
