How to Create a Hidden Sentiment Card

The hidden sentiment trick is one of my favorite design elements. I started making the hidden sentiment card by creating a bold floral background on a Solar White Cardstock panel.

First, I stamped the rose clusters in the corners of the panel using the stamp from the Ambridge Rose Stamp Set and Shadow Creek Dye Ink. After that, I colored them using the coordinating Ambridge Rose Coloring Stencil Set.

For coloring, I used the Mini Blending Brush as well as the Fresh Leaf, Lime, and Limeade Dye Inks. I only colored the flower parts of the clusters, leaving the stems and leaves non-colored.

Each rose has two coloring layers; I used lighter and darker pairs of inks to make the roses of different shades.

Next, I made two masks for the rose clusters by stamping them onto a Masking Paper and hand-cutting them after that using my scissors. I only was making masks for flowers since I didn't really need to mask off stems and leaves. And cutting out masks for just flowers was a very easy task.

I applied the masks onto the roses and, using a Large Blending Brush, blended the Starlight Dye Ink onto the panel until it became bold blue.

Next, I stamped several leaves around the flowers and colored them using the same Ambridge Rose Coloring Stencil Set. I used the Starlight Dye Ink for both stamping and coloring the leaves.

With that, the background was ready for the next step – creating a dimensional hidden sentiment.

I used dies from the Bold Alphabet Die Set to make it. First, I die-cut the word HUGS out of the created background. Next, I die-cut each letter 6 times out a lime green cardstock.

For each letter, I stacked its layers using liquid adhesive, with the background die-cut on top. After that, I inserted the letters into their corresponding negative spaces.

TIP! I opted for the lime green color for the letter's dimensional parts to match them with the roses of the background and, at the same time, to stand out against the dark blue background of this hidden sentiment card.

To make the sentiment a bit more visible, I slightly blended the Fresh Leaf Dye Ink onto it. And to add interest to the background, I also splattered it with the Pure White Ink Spray.

Lastly, the panel was foam mounted onto a white card base using the Instant Dimension Foam Tape. There you have it! I hope you liked this hidden sentiment card. Here's another project inspiration featuring the hidden sentiment trick.
