Yesterday was our youngest daughter's birthday and I made her a 'secret door' card. Her favourite colour is yellow so I started by colouring the cheetah paper (another favourite) with an ombre look - darkest at the top down to lightest at the bottom.
From the outside it looks like a standard gate fold card...
When you open it up you get a hint of what is to come. I left a blank space on the left side where I wrote my message.
Open the gate to go through the secret door. Here's how it looks inside the secret spot. This is where I added a sentiment to the card.
Did you spot the trick? Can you see how the secret door opens? (spoiler alert below)
Keep reading to see how it opens.
When you're ready to close the secret door, you simple grab hold of the front flaps of the card (the parts that are decorated on the outside with the girl and balloons) and pull gently to the sides. The secret door will flip closed and you will have returned to the inside of the card. Clever huh?

Wow its been such a long time since I've posted here. I do regularly post on my Facebook page so if you're on Facebook be sure to follow and like my page.
Sara Douglas our CEO shared a brilliant live video today all about the adhesives we carry. She showed each of the adhesives, how they work and which use they are best for. I know it will be super helpful for those of you who are new as well as those of you who aren't - even I learned something new and that was about the foam adhesive sheets.
Check it out here:
If you have any further questions about any of the adhesives we carry, feel free to ask me. I'll be happy to answer them for you. I use a range of these adhesives every day myself and also in my craft classes.

The top is separate from the base with a window to show the goodies inside. I used the Stitched Nested Labels dies and a piece of window sheet to create the window.
