Hidden Panel Father’s Day Card | Pretty Pink Posh | Video

Hello, crafters! In this video, I’m showing how to make Hidden Panel cards for Father’s Day using stamps & coordinating dies! No specialty dies are used for this!

I chose to use an adorable Animal Signs stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh from April 2019 release. I’m also using a couple of other new products from Pretty Pink Posh today (all listed below).

HIDDEN PANEL FATHER’S DAY CARD DETAILS

I started by partially die cutting giraffe from a panel of light blue cardstock. Watch my video tutorial to see how partial die cutting is done if you’ve never done it before. Next, I used my scoring board and bone folder to create a score line in place of the last cut line, to create a hinge. This allowed me to make a “door” in my front panel and later hide a sentiment behind it.

Next, I worked on dressing up the front panel. For this, I used Bow Ties stencil, clear embossing ink, and clear embossing powder for a tone on tone look. I ink blended clear ink onto the paper through the stencil, next added clear embossing powder and heat set it. My front panel is ready! I stamped Happy Father’s Day sentiment in brown ink on white cardstock panel and foam mounted the blue panel over it with the “door” open making sure I aligned everything correctly.

So this basically is what the technique is. You use a stamp and coordinating die, with the help of the die you make a partial cut to create a door on a hinge so to speak, you hide a message behind the door and use the stamp and die to decorate the front of the card. And this, of course, can be used all year round, not just for Father’s day cards, but also for Birthday, encouragement and many other kinds of projects.

To dress up the front of the card I stamped my main character – the giraffe! I used Copic marker friendly ink and colored him using several colors of Copics: E37, E33, E31, E51, B05, B02, C1, C3 and E79 as the darkest brown marker.

I also stamped some star-shaped balloons, these come from Elephant Friends stamp set and colored them using BG32, BG11, B000, Y17, Y35, and Y11 markers.

I foam mounted the giraffe die cut onto the partial die cut flap and dressed him up in a yellow tie. Next, I attached the star-shaped balloons using glue and foam adhesive. I cut the string where it overlapped the flap so that the flap would open and close freely.

Finally, I wanted to make a closure element for the flap as it was popping open all the time and I also needed a place for another sentiment. I first stamped the “You’re Amazing” in black ink on yellow cardstock. Next, I cut a small square from light blue cardstock, the same color of cardstock I used for the background. I made the square just a bit smaller than the yellow panel. Using my tool ’n one piercer I poked a hole in both yellow banner and blue square and inserted a small brad through both paper pieces. Who knew I’d still be using brads these days? I feel like these are such an old embellishment!

Next, I placed a large foam square over the blue square and used it to adhere the closure element to the card. Because I added foam adhesive to another piece of cardstock, to that blue square and not yellow, this allowed the yellow piece to move freely.

Lastly, to dress to my giraffe up I used a white pen and added striped to his tie and adhered tiny googly eyes to make him a bit more charismatic!

The card is done! Whether you are making a card for your dad, your hubby or your son I hope you’ll give this idea a try! I look forward to making a few hidden panel cards for my girlfriends and including some secret messages on the inside.
