Secret Garden, Ciao Baby!, Love Card

Secret Garden Ciao Baby love card

I decided on a peek-a-boo card today.  Coordinating framelits make it soooo super-dooper easy to do.  Unlike punches you can place and cut your framelit shape anywhere on the cardstock.  Super handy!  Right?!

Also, I photographed this on the stand because I adhered the pattern paper on the inside of the card and cut the wide scallop edge from the front of  the card, so if I had photographed it open the scallop edge would have been resting on the surface and you wouldn’t be able to see the lovely little flower pattern below.  And that would be a crying shame!

In addition to the little flowers paper below the scallop, I used the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Pack for the leaves and the flower too.  The leaves were punched from the Bird Builder Punch and the flower was stamped and cut with the Secret Garden  stamp and framelit.

Here’s the easy-peasy way to get your peek-a-boo flower to match up perfectly inside your card.  It isn’t rocket science, I swear. Just place and cut with your framelit where you want your opening in the front cardstock.   Then stamp your flower on cardstock or pattern paper (in this case print pack) and cut it out with the same framelit.  Then place adhesive on the back of your flower, close your card front and adhere the flower through the opening onto the inside of the card.  Simple!

Here’s another angle.  The love tag was simply stamped from the Caio, Baby! stamp set on Pool Party cardstock and punched out with the Petite Curly Label Punch (available FREE with a Sale-a-bration order Jan. 22nd).

And this is what you see when you open the card.  I cut the pattern paper with the scallop framelit also.  And “Oh happy day!” is another sneak peek from a Sale-a-bration stamp set, Bloomin’ Marvelous.
