Here's my card for the "Pretty Little Liars" challenge:

So what's the secret you ask?? This card has not one, but two little secrets...first...see the ribbon on the right hand side?? When you pull that out, there is a greeting tag inside (see the picture below). The second little secret is that the greeting tag sleeve is made from a toliet paper roll...yep...don't throw out or recycle those things!!! Keep em for crafting!!

This time of year I always start hoarding empty toilet paper rolls in anticipation of making lots and lots of Christmas gift card holders. I have had the "thought" for this card in my mind for some time now...thinking it would be fun to make a pull out tag front for a card with a toilet paper roll. I sealed one end of the toilet paper roll with double sided sticky tape and heat embossed the bat and the sentiment (all one stamp).

Here's a picture of the card with the greeting tag in front:

What's in it:
Cardstock - Basic Black (SU), Kraft (The Paper Company)
Design Paper - My Mind's Eye - Night Light Wings in the Night
Stamp - Hello Friend Bat (not sure of manufacturer)
Ribbon - Celebrate It - Basic Narrows (Michael's)
Thanks for lookin!!
