Remember when we were kids and how you loved getting a note from your friend…you slyly opened it during class hoping no one would see the precious words that were written for you alone? Did you just relive one of those awesome moments from grade school? Memories are wonderful things! *smile*
My newest creation took me back to those years! This quick little card has a surprise greeting for the recipient. Who doesn’t like surprises, right?
This card was quick to create as I used Stampin’ Up! newest punch the postage stamp punch and the tried and true Heart to Heart punch! I just love the cute postage stamp and have used it on several of my current creations. It is about 1-1/4” square and has the lovely stamp detail!
The secret message is revealed by moving the top portion of the image. The brad is the only thing holding it on…so it will move to reveal that special message only for your special recipient. Don’t forget to let them know in your personal message that there is a special message on the front! I stamped my message, but a personal handwritten message would be perfect too!
I know I have been using a bunch of retired product lately…but I have to use it up so bear with me if you have already used yours up! Months of no stamping does that to you!
