Tag Archives: Fun Fold


Welcome to the September Technique Blog Hop! This month is all about a window of some sort! I know there will be LOTS of great ideas on this hop, so make sure to visit everyone! (and make sure to leave some love along the way! EVERYONE loves to hear how much their creation resonates with others!) Today, you may have come from Lauren’s blog, or you may have started here. Either way, it will be a big circle, so you will eventually end up back here!

Today I did a fun peek a boo card, with a new technique that I hadn’t tried yet, and it was fun! Let’s take a look at the front, first, shall we?

I am IN LOVE with the wood paper packet! This is just one of the papers from the packet! It is actually a plank looking piece, so, I did some fussy cutting to be able to have it look like a solid piece (though, maybe not quite so much in person!)

That Thanks die cut is fabulous, isn’t it? That is new too! I cut three layers from White Daisy Cardstock, and the shadow layer from Mint Cardstock. Then layered them with the liquid glass, that I LOVE so much! I attached them on top of a piece of vellum with some micro glue dots. I finished fancy-ing up the card with some gold glitter gems.

Now, let’s take a look at the inside, shall we?

Oh my goodness! Isn’t that fantastic?!?! SOOOOOOOO much fun!

I used the From the Funny Farm stamp set for the adorable little birdie! I stamped it in the intense black ink and then colored with the Ice Blue Blend Tri tip marker. I used the circle thin cut from the card spinner die set for the little cut out for the bird.

The sentiment side uses the Stitched Fancy Brackets dies, in both White Daisy and Mint Cardstocks. I stamped the sentiment with the Teeny Tiny Type alpha set.

I hope you leave a bit of love for me! Then, off to another Michelle’s blog! 😉

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
