1st day of Spring today YAHOO! Lost is on tonight YIPPY! and More HUGE news But I'm gonna wait and see if you all know what it is ..Shhhhhhh ( I will be back today with the HUGE announcement ) and today a New Tutorial to make this card which I call my Secret panel card .. Not sure if thats what the original name of this card is But thats what I am calling it.. I actually have 2 tutorials today but for the sake of not uploading tons of photos I will point you to where the other tutorial is Okey dokey ? for my secret panel card I used pixie pink & apricot appeal along with whisper white . This was actually one of the card I had sent in for the display stamper for SU! convention ( which I was not picked for ) Today is to great to let that get me down !! also once you start viewing the photos you will notice a few numbers not appearing this is because I am trying to keep the amount of photos I have to upload on my blog down to a minimum But all steps are listed in written directions a couple without actual photo sorry But I do think you all can still understand the tutorial even if a few photos are not shown .. I believe in YOU!! and KNOW YOU CAN DO IT .. your gonna love it !! and so will the receive of this card you send it too ( wink wink )
Ok lets get started 1st you will need 2 pieces of cardstock ( coordinating colors ) cutter , scoring tool, scissors and of course your stamp set of choice I am using burst into bloom, all year cheer I ( its your Day ) and Be Happy set ( smile ) I will be showing you how to make this card and decorating it is up to you .. Okey dokey ?
#1 Ok cut your 2 pieces of cardstock Your main card ( pixie Pink) will be cut at 5 1/2" X 8" and the 2 smaller pieces ( apricot Appeal ) will be cut at 5 1/2 X the notch right before 2" ( not sure what that measurement is right now ( Help Diane ) #2 score your main card ( Pixie pink ) at 2" 4" and 6"
Next pinch the center point of your "W" this is where you will be using your scissors to make 2 slits try to keep your cuts in equal distance apart as shown in photo #6 cut your slits up to the score line
Ok Next take your small 2 pieces ( apricot appeal ) and weave them into your slit cuts as shown in photo #8 making sure to make them opposite each other .. weave one down and up and the other up and down as shown in photo #8 This is what you should end up with in Photo #9
Ok next we need to activate your secret panel card to activate you will need to close your card as shown in photos # 10 once you close your card you will be looking very very closely to your center of the card where the weaves pieces are .. look for a Small slit running down the center It may not pop out at you But it is there.( I promise ) Once you find the slit pry them apart . Look at photo the next photo for a closer view on what to be looking for
OK now your card is activated this is what it should look like .. and ready for you to send .. Yes this is the way you will mail your card to its lucky receiver . Now you must add the word PULL on each of the sides so the receiver nows to actually pull the 2 sides to make your secret panel card work I have added butterflies to my pull words just for a special touch. ( keep reading down for my link to my tutorial on my butterflies )
Now this is what happens when you pull the sides at the same time your secret panel will appear when pulled
My tutorial on how to make the butterflies is located HERE in my Web shots gallery sorry my photos of my butterfly tutorial are not very clear But I hope you will get the idea anyway .. these are very easy to make with just 2 punches.
