Today Part II of the Secret Panel Card will show you how to make the finished card into a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card. To start, you will need two pieces of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" colored CS that was used to make your base card. You will also need two additonal 1 7/8" x 5 1/2" white strips.
Put two strips of Sticky Strip along the sides of the end pieces of the card - this is where the two new sections will be attached to extend and create a larger size front and back of the card.
Attach the two sections.
Be ure to CHECK FIRST that you are ATTACHING THEM TO THE CORRECT SIDE of the card! Take a few trial runs before you glue the sections on! Look back at Part I from yesterday's post if you are confused, as those photos may help you.
You want the inside panels center fold to be at the front and the open ends of the two panels to meet together at the back. This creates the secret panel when it is then opened from the front.
When the open ends of the two panels meet in back then the secret panels open out from the front. Like magic! :<)
I trimmed off the outer edge of the Top Note, outlined the embossed design with black ink, colored in with markers, added a little Stickles for a bit of bling (as I did on the inside the card) and then turned it upside down before adding the sentiment. I liked that better than to have the words at the top. :<)
Thanks for stopping by today!
Wishing you a great day! If you have any questions I will be happy to try to answer them.
