I enjoy making cards that open a bit differently than a traditional card. For today’s cards, I created large elements that lift open to reveal a message. You can do this technique with most any die cut shape.

My first example features the new Pretty Pink Posh With Love Shaker Die (SSS | PPP). I colored a white die cut with Copic Markers and added silver shine with a Molotow Liquid Chrome Pen.

On the Simon Says Stamp Fog Cardstock background, I stamped Pretty Pink Posh Bold Blooms (SSS | PPP) flowers with Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink and Hero Arts Unicorn White Ink.

In the video, I show how to use acetate to create little hinges to allow the heart die cut to open up to reveal a message. (Be sure to watch it!) The “hugs and kisses” is from the Pretty Pink Posh Floral Hearts Stamp Set (SSS | PPP).

My second card features the new Pretty Pink Posh Celebrate Shaker Die (SSS | PPP). I used it to create a shaker window with lots of Pretty Pink Posh Jewels (SSS | PPP) inside.

I also used the new Pretty Pink Posh Pinata Party Stamp Set (SSS | PPP) on the background.

My last card uses the Pretty Pink Posh Hugs Die (SSS | PPP) to create a circle flap…

For the background, I used the Carta Bella Perfect Stripe Embossing Folder

… and added a Pretty Pink Posh Floral Hearts Stamp Set (SSS | PPP) greeting underneath. You can barely see the acetate hinge!

  3. Once more you showed us a technique that looks much more complicated than it is, and ended up with lovely cards. Thank you.

  4. Happy birthday to PPP!! Thank you for the beautiful cards and the discount code… although you may want to make a correction on the date: “Save 10% off your purchase with the code “CELEBRATE5”. Good through 1/2/19. Shop HERE.” I thought the sale ended on the 2nd. (GASP!!) Good thing I double-checked! I got a few things on my wish list and a new stamp set just released!! Yay! Love your cards, and your blog.

  5. These are so cute! I have a lot of pretty printed cardstock that I think would work nicely on these and save me a step, too. The hinged greeting is the focal point, anyway, especially if it’s done up as an in-lay or shaker card. Anxious to try this. Thanks so much. Hope you are rested and feeling well again! Hugz!

  11. What a fun way to do something different with one’s cards! I appreciate your videos so much, because you always have so many great tips to make our cards better. Like, in this card, you have a great main technique, but you also have some really useful hints about making backgrounds. I get tired just thinking about how much time and effort must go into these videos and maintaining your blog and all the things you do, so I just want to say thank you. <3

  12. Thank you once again for a truly inspiring technique. You always amaze me and the cards are beautiful. It’s also a lovely release.
