Hidden Sentiment Reveal Card + Studio Katia 2nd Birthday Hop!

Hello everyone! I am so excited you’ve joined me today, as I am guesting in the Studio Katia 2nd Birthday Blog Hop! Have you been hopping along? If you have, you should have arrived from Ilda Dias’s blog.

For my card, I used the adorable Kobi Bearing Gifts stamp set (that bear is so cute!), along with the Birthday Greetings sentiments. There is also a new die called Scallop Window (super fun and interactive!) and Bubbles stencil. I used all of these to make this colorful, hidden-sentiment-reveal card.

At first you see the cute panel with gifts peeking out of it; everything is surrounded by pretty, Satin Rainbow Confetti sequins. The fun part is when you lift the flap of the window! It reveals the remaining part of the sentiment AND the bear that is holding that stack of gifts!

Besides the Rainbow Confetti sequins, I also used the Crystal Stars in the background, plus Studio Katia’s Chunky Confetti glitter on the balloon. This card is bursting with sparkle!

To complement the card, I decorated a Simon Says Stamp white envelope with a bit of ink blending using the Bubbles stencil. Those bubbles reminded me of giant balloons or confetti!
