HIdden element card

The current challenge over at Daring Card Makers is to make a card that has a hidden element! I love that kind of thing and often include hidden tags, pulls, or sliders in my scrapbooking, however, I rarely think of doing it on a card.

I decided to hide a small card on top of a larger card. If you were to untie the hemp on this card, there is a sentiment that says "thinking of you".

Since I am always trying to make masculine cards, I decided to stick to a more masculine theme on this one and see where it went. It all started with the trees which led to the color choice and the rest of the elements.

Supplies: Cardstock - Very Vanilla, River Rock (both SU), artichoke green (unknown); Ink - Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Close to Cocoa (all SU); Stamps - Tree Cluster sm. (Stampscapes), Take a Bough, Faux Ribbon, Borders & Corners {rectangles} [this is inside the small card on top]; Accessories - hemp (SU), daubers (SU), Pastal Chalks (SU).

Thanks for visiting my blog!! I am really enjoying this adventure!! :-)
