Life is a Beautiful Ride: Hidden Messages Card

Hello crafty people! I shared a card last week featuring the {Beautiful Ride} stamp set. It's such a fun set of images and sentiments. For today's card share, I did some "paper piecing", not sure what that means? It's really simple - I stamped the punch buggy or Volkswagen Bug image onto Bermuda Bay card stock and stamped it a second time on a piece of Designer Series Paper, then fussy cut it out and added it directly on top of the previous image. It's as simple as that! Now my bug has some super rad stripes - I'd love a car like this! I made this card for my sister's wedding anniversary, which is today!

This is an interactive card also, which makes it even more fun. That cute little bug car can be removed and has a "hidden message" attached and ... 

Then, it reveals another image "a couple snuggled by the sunset", but that's not all... 

If you remove that too, you will find another "hidden message". The best part is that they all tuck in perfectly for a nice surprise. I started with one pocket, and I wasn't quite happy with it so I added another on top, but I still had the first pocket so I kept adding stuff. An added element of surprise! 

I have made this card for my sister and brother-in-law, who are celebrating their 5th Anniversary today. Happy Anniversary to you both!!! I thought this card was extra special, so I had to give it to extra-special people - who's better than family!?! The sentiment Life is a Beautiful Ride & Celebrate, are perfect for an Anniversary and since they're in the same set it coordinates perfectly also. It's hard to see, but if you look at the sun, I stamped a face from the {Ray of Sunshine} set from the Annual Stampin' Up! catalogue - the sentiment under the VW Bug is also from that set. 

To finish the last minute details, I had to add a bit of sparkle and shine with some {Rhinestone Basic Jewels} for the stars, some sparkly car exhaust with the new {Pool Party 3/8" Glitter Ribbon} - I just pulled the end apart with my paper piercing tool. 

I also added a cute little bow using the new {Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon} and some {It's My Party Enamel Dots} to the center of the car wheels! Look at the fun fold also. I hope they like it and hope you do also. Have a super day :)

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
