I hope you’re enjoying your weekend.
Today’s video features a Secret Message Card which has
been around for years, and is probably one of the easiest
fancy fold cards to make.
The actual card can be put together in about five minutes or so. The
part that takes the time is the decorating, and I’m amazed I’ve used
a staggering NINE different stamp sets.
As usual, I’ve listed all the stamp sets I’ve used in the box below the
video but you’re free to choose from your own stash if you don’t feel
like treating yourself to any of the sets I’ve used! ☺
The first Secret Message Card I decorated is the Lemon Lime Twist
and Fresh Fig card – it took what seemed like hours. The reason
for this is that I punched or die cut each image and sentiment.
I’m pleased with the way my card finished up, but it did teach me
an important lesson for when I need several images and several
The lesson is, choose photopolymer stamps, and stamp directly
onto each section direct no die-cutting, or punching! I had masses
of different ideas going through my mnd as I was
working on this project.
The finished size of my card is 6″ x 6″, which is a lovely sized card.
I did make one that was the same size as our regular card but it
didn’t feel a good size to send someone as a greeting card!
Before starting this project, I watch several videos on YouTube,
and I saw some amazing ideas. The one that really sticks in my
mind, was from a young lady who used some fancy edged
scissors to cut her lines – her card looked fabulous, and it appeared
to work really well.
Unfortunately, I’m not happy to recommend something usless I’ve
tried it, so I may go back to the drawing board on this at some time!
I hope you enjoy todays project and give it a go.
I wish you a very blessed Sunday,
and until tomorrow, happy crafting.

This is a really fun card Jan, with lots of stamping elements with it too. How would the recipient know how to find the messages or is that the aim of the card for the recipient to spend time trying to find the messages? I love the tone-on-tone stamping it makes a project look so professional and to use the markers pens to get the different colours on the sentiments. Thank you for sharing this with us crafters. :O)
thank you so much for your video and sharing how you made this creative and fun card. I really enjoy your blog and seeing all the cards you share. Thanks again for all you share!!! GlendaJ
