Hide n Seek Dare

Last Friday it was Kathy's turn to dare over on Daring Card Makers.

Okay, for my dare we're heading to the playground for a game of
Hide & Seek
I'd like you to make a card which has a hidden component of some sort.The hidden part could be a tag, a concealed photo, message or something along those lines, maybe a pull-out or pop-up.Anything goes as long as there's something extra for the recipient to find on your card that's not immediately visible when they open the envelope.

I had been mulling over the idea of using a file folder on a card for a while so this dare was perfect. I decided to use the idea on a Valentine's card for my OH. Yes I know I had already done one, but I thought a more personal touch would be nice. I can always save the other one for next year :)
The file folder opens to reveal a photo and secret message -I know i've disguised it, but trust me it's not smutty, it's just a joke that he will get.
File folder cut by hand (with a little help from a corner rounder punch)
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Black and white paper is the Bubbly Funk one designed by Kirsty Wiseman recoloured in Photoshop
Papermania anchor
Home-made bottlecap embellishment
Inking and pen stitching
Ribbon from stash
Thanks for looking,

This is SUCH a fab card - I love the idea of the file folder - I've got one somewhere that I've never known what to do with - this idea is brilliant.
