Birthday Blessings Telescope card w/hidden message & Video Tutorial

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday to all! today's card was designed for a couple of challenges, one of those being Our Daily Bread Designs, and the other is Really Reasonable Ribbon. I wanted to make another one of these super fun folds, and this one has a hidden message inside. I have a Video Tutorial below for you to view and see how easy these are to put together. Hope you enjoy!!

Happy Birthday Mom /Telescope card w/hidden spot for journaling (VIDEO TUTORIAL)
Card Base-Spellbinders /CottageCutz all different sizes find what sizes you like to layer best, as you can go larger or smaller with this card base. Then its all about layer up with Design paper & Card Stock layers. Brads for holding together and cropadile to punch holes
Rose was done-Embossing Powder /glue pad/heat gun(large Rose)

Rose- Was stamped 2 times in memento black ink, on white card stock. I then colored both images with copics RV21, RV02, RV11, RV34, I left 1 image and then cut the other one up so I could layer it and make my rose 3-D. I used the glue pad to dab each piece into, and then dipped into clear embossing powder, repeat that several times until you get the desired look you like. Normally I can dip about 3 times. I then use hot glue, and glue each peace on top of my flat image.

Birthday Blessings Tag- was just stamped in memento black ink, on white card stock, and then cut down to size that would fit my card. I layered with some leftover border pieces I was going to throw out, but decided to use it up, behind my sentiment. I then glued it to a piece of Lace. Next I added the floral piece, its from CottageCutz and was left over from the fancy oval. I colored it with RV34,RV21,RV02 , and for the greenery I used YG03 & YG95, and then added some pearls . Butterflies were stamped in memento black ink, an then colored with copics RV34,RV02,RV21, then I added some of the glossy accents to them and set aside to dry, after they dried I added pearls.

Envelope- was made using the Envelope punch board from We R Memory Keepers. I used the Card size  4 1/2" x 4 1/2" to create my envelope as shown here. when the envelope is all folded up it ends up measuring 4 3/4" x 4 3/4"that way there is plenty of room for a 3-D card to fit inside. This one can be mailed out with USPS, but I will be giving it in person.I did add some Lace, and a die cut piece from the scrapping cottage.
