Congratulations are in order!

  My sister and her husband are grandparents for a second time : )  Here are two cards for the occasion! Well..... three cards actually LOL I made an extra card for my "idea portfolio".  These two cards are the very first cards I made using the zipper strip and I wanted to see what it would look like underneath.  The card on the background is the one I sent to my sister. : )

Here is the card I sent to my nephew and niece to congratulate them on their second son, Noah John : )

The hidden message says: "of new baby wishes".

This zipper die is super easy to use.  I love the secret message concept.  I know what it says underneath but it still makes me want to open it! heehee I am such a kid  : )  I had never seen anything like this before.  I guess they came out during the time I was focusing on building my scarf business instead of buying new paper crafting supplies.  They might be "old hat" to some people but I am so glad I found them! Every person I know will end up getting one (or two) cards with hidden messages!

Since creating this card I had to order THIS SET which includes three "Pull Here" stamps.  I had not realized how essential it would be to stamp that instruction on cards using the zipper.  With the "Pull Here" instruction stamped on the card it makes it easy for the recipient understand what they are supposed to do. 

Thanks a bunch for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day : )
