Merry's Inspiration - Hidden Message Card

Card front

Merry has used one of the many tutorials available from Craftmad, our sponsor this month.
She has used Kerry's tutorial for a Hidden Message Card.
You can find more detail about papers etc. on Merry's Blog.

This style of card is perfect for our current challenge #11 - Moving Parts.
Although it does look like it could be tricky it is deceivingly easy to create and decorate.
Only two day remaining in our challenge and the odds are great for winning the terrific Craftmad prize on offer.

Card opened to reveal butterflies.

Squash the butterfly section up to form a mountain and then pull apart to reveal the 'Thank You' message.
Unstampabelles Challenge #11 Moving Parts bonus entry if a brad or split pin added.

JanR's Wiggle Card

This has to be one of the funnest Moving Parts cards I have seen.
JanR has been busy and created this card for a bit of inspiration for our latest: 

Grandpa shakes when you move him as he has a spring attached to his butt.  :-D JanR has added brads to each corner which if she was able to enter would give her a bonus entry into this challenge.
Please visit JanR's blog for more details.

Think this is a fun idea and would like to try this out so you can enter our challenge?
