Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Julie Davisdon

Hi all :)
Welcome to our Blog Hop.
This week we are Hopping with Julie Davison.

I was pouring through Julie's Blog and come across this card (below) almost straight away! And as I am sooooo in love with the Paisley's right now, I knew I just HAD to create my own version of this Peekaboo card.



Paisley Love!

For this card it was easier to show a picture and then try to explain the instructions.

  The red card base picture came from 
         When scored and folded it all fits together to look like this.  I couldn't find a name or blog for this picture, sorry.


  •  You will require 3 pieces of Card stock in your chosen colour, cut to the measurements in the picture above. 
Then score them as follows:
  1. The inside/middle card is scored @ exactly half way. 
  2. The front is scored @ 7.5 cm. 
  3. The back is scored @, this is used as a hinge to attach to the inside/middle card.
  • You will need three pieces of DSP or your own designed background papers. All cut to fit how ever you desire, either with edges or not. I have edge of my copper layer and my Rich Razzleberry card base showing.
  • When you have all of your pieces, *mark the front of your card in at 1 cm from the opening edge down the length of the card.....then *mark at 6.5 cm in from your first mark.  
TIP * Your window has to be inside those two marks, so that the movable card stock shows no edges inside the window frames etc.
  • Attach you DSP to your card bases.  
 *If using layers (like me) PLEASE don't put your layers together until all windows have been cut! I tried this and found that it was too much for the big shot and squished my papers out of shape. use steps below . I ruined a crap load of paper from trying to put my layers together and onto my card bases!
  1. Cut your first window from your front piece of DSP. 
  2. Then laying your DSP over the top and holding in place with a tiny bit of adhesive snail, draw with a pencil around the inside marking where you will make the next window, precisely!
*I found that having a border around your windows really helps to give the card a more finished look.
  • If stamping your images for the windows, place your card pieces under the back page in their positions. Stamp straight through the window, that way you know it will be EXACTLY where you want it to be. 
  • Put all of your pieces together and voila! You have your peekaboo card

  • The windows for my peekaboo card have been cut using the Paisley Framelits.
  • The DSP I chose is from the Petals and Pailseys DSP  in Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla with Copper dots.
  • I cut 3 small strips of the Rich Razzlebrry DSP and left just enough room for a strip of tear and tape to join that DSP to the Copper dots DSP.
  • I layered these onto a pre-cut copper foil sheet.
  • You can see that for the first set inside my windows, I have heat embossed using the White embossing powder, straight onto the Rich Razzleberry.

  • And here for the second set of I have used a die cut copper sheet from the Paisley Framelits set and the Copper embossing powder.
  • To finish this card I added a long piece of Very Vanilla ribbon tied with a bow. This bow wraps around the inside of the card too, as you can see above.
  •  I also added my sentiment and a die cut copper shape with Metallic thread in copper..
