I got A LOT of response from my card yesterday, so I put together a tutorial of sorts. Since every card will be different (where you want your window, images, etc), this is a rather basic tutorial, but you can make the card when you're done - YAY!!
First you punch, or cut out the image you want to be the window, in this case, I used the gigs scallop circle for my "tree". I stamped over it with the watercolor minis fern, to give the look of leaves. I then punched out the center with my 1 3/8 square punch. This becomes the window, and it can be in any shape you want!
In the first picture, you can see the score line, and that is 1/4 from the end. I folded it over and placed that edge on the edge of my window, tracing the square. Then I stamped my image in that square, centering it for the best view. Then, I finished coloring him in, and stamping more leaves, erasing the pencil template I drew. I folded the ends back over, each at 1/4, the whole piece was 2 inches wide, and 4 1/4 long.
Then I cut a piece of wasabi 2 inches wide, and 5 1/2 inches long. I measured how long my image was (1 1/2) and then added on a 1/4 inch to make sure I was covered. So, I cut in 1/4 on each side at 1 3/4 inches and then all the way to the opposite side, and then stamped the fatter end for the leaves. I cut a strip on the score line, so that the narrow end of the pull tab could fit through, but not the wider end. I then put sticky strip on each of the folded edges. I first stuck down the end with the monkey, making sure that the pull tab was in position.
Then I folded over the other end and glued it onto the other side. I put sticky strip all around the card, and ONLY ON THE BOTTOM SIDE of the pull strip. This will keep it aligned, so it will pull out straight. I then trimmed off the excess on the tab, and added it all to a chocolate base.
Hope you all enjoy making a peek-a-boo card, have fun and happy stamping!!
