Introducing Secret Agent & Zappy Birthday

Hello and welcome to the fourth day of the Papertrey Ink January countdown! 

Today's group post is all about the new Secret Agent and Zappy Birthday collections! My son, he thinks these are the coolest cards I've ever made! That says a lot about the products featured today.  Totally boy approved.  Hope you enjoy what I have to share with you today too...
First up, Secret Agent.  My focus for this first card are the cool shades.  These are not your typical glasses.  In fact, you can't read the message on this card without them.  I've tucked an arm behind the top layer so they're easily accessible.  Here's How: All I did was leave a space between the dimensional adhesive I've attached to the backside, these sweet shades slide right in from the top.  Another idea would be to cut a slit, wide enough to allow one arm to side on through, at the top edge of your card base. 
This undercover card was stamped in a color combo of spring rain, orange zest and smokey shadow. 

Here's a look at Zappy Birthday in action!  I combined this set with the Tipped Top die collection.  These dies helped me create a sort of a "sneak peek" at a hidden superhero cape underneath the top layer.
A mix of patterns, colors and shapes keeps things exciting.  Colors used... blueberry sky, pure poppy, spring rain and true black.

Well, that concludes my look at the Secret Agent and Zappy Birthday collectionsJust remember... these products will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning January 15th.

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...
